Good efficient slips are prone to bulging sidewalls due to soft structure. I know a few people that have tried continental sport contact3 with positive reports.

I have MPS-4s on mine. I tested an Up Gti in London in April 2018 courtesy of a dealer who didn't know i lived in Spain.Looking around the car i noticed a front tyre bulge too.The dealership guys hadn't noticed!!.... Surprise,surprise!! Loved the car though and ordered one in Las Palmas (Gran Canaria) as the Spanish mainland VW importers didn't want to market the Gti.I believe mine is the only Gti here.

Managed to get two michelin 205 40 17 fitted today for £198 as therewas a 10%discount on their website. It took over a week for them to arrive but was kept informed by kwikfit throughout.
