Different tyres but steering was seriously heavy and pulled to the left with eagle f1 asym2 at legal limit.
Swapped with asym3 fitted and now nice and lite and true to the point of if you take the hand off the wheel the car holds it's line.;)

All being said these are a wet weather tyre not a performance tire, with flexible tread blocks and tread structure designed for fast drainage of water, I had a set fitted to the wife's mini and found them exactly the same as your saying, compared to the Dunlop sports that were fitted previously I found the a step back in performance, but on the other hand just looking for a safer tyre,

The RS3's are a comfy rain tyre, not a sports tyre. XL doesn't dramatically improve that. It mainly makes the tyres hold higher air pressures for higher loads. Nothing more.

Should've bought the F1's for handling and responsiveness ;)

Just installed the same Uniroyals as you and I have to admit, they are wobbly.
