I've just fitted Goodyear Eagle F1's to my hatch.
Don't know why extra load tyres are specced, because looking at the difference in the load rating, the 91 is enough, and the difference between 91 and 94 isn't a great deal.
The fitter at my local tyre place asked before he started if it had "that bloody pressure monitor system, cos if it has I'm not touching them"
Luckily my Dynamique hasn't, don't see the point in it myself (weekly check with an old fashioned pop out guage).

He then goes on to tell me stories of bolted valves snapping off, needing a new sensor at about 80 a go.

He also said there is a different type that is on a belt around the wheel, that don't cause too many problems.
