I'm really liking the E-07s so far. I have the non-dakar version and have about 5000 km on them so far. For a 50/50 tire I don't find them noisy on the road.

I was never shown the parts but it took them 2 times to fix the leak. It seems to be holding now. I have noticed worse gas mileage this year though. I assumed it was due to the new ECU.
