Lots of experience gets shared with Bridgestones but I haven't seen anyone else reporting wear levels with these, so here is a data point if interested.
I measured our tyres (roughly) after 3500 miles and all four tyres were between 5 and 6 mm (the rears closer to 5 and the fronts closer to 6).
I just measured them again after 6800 miles, the fronts are now at about 5mm and the rears around 4.5mm (left rear slightly more worn than right for some reason, maybe down close to 4mm at the shallowest bit).

So on the negative side, they obviously start with fairly shallow tread a bit like the Bridgestones. On the positive side, wear doesn't seem as bad as some have reported for the Bridgestones, and not as biased to the rear as I'd thought it might be. I'd hope to get between 15000 and 20000 miles before changing them, which isn't great but I've had worse.

I haven't had many opportunities for B road driving on them, it's mostly a combination of motorway and urban miles, but I do like to use the power quite often.

Might be worth rotating fronts to backs soon to even out that wear, if you font mind paying for 4 tyres at once.

Yep, I think that's probably a good idea in another few months.

I managed to get to just over 10k miles on Bridgestones, they did look to be getting low on the rear.

I changed all four for some Goodyear efficientgrip... that came with a free Cupra Born... expensive for tyres mind!

We managed 32k on the Conti’s
Have not replaced with another set as unfortunately we had gash the sidewall of one and couldn’t get hold of much else !
Happy with the Conti’s
