Perhaps my only gripe of my QQ is the conti tyres, im very light footed on the revs but the front tyres were done by 30k
Mine were done by 20k, so you will be doing well at 30k. I went for Avon ZX7's for mine - set of four boots from Black Circles and I find them a bit quieter than the Continentals, and they seem to have better grip also.

Well now had the QQ for 5000 miles and lowest mpg for a tank of diesel so far is 59.3 mpg so well chuffed. Had the odd niggle with sensors when they are dirty but nothing too serious and a quick wipe down has solved the problem. Tyre wear (18" wheels) is minmal and I can't see them needing replacement (front only) before 30k miles. I have a couple of rattles near the passenger door/air vent so will investigate in the spring. I have a couple of other odd issues neither of whch are serious. The first is the headlights, when it is cold (less than 10 deg C) and I drive off in the dark to work, the headlight brightness pulses for about 5 mins usually within about the first mile of so of driving. I am putting this down to the smart charging system and will discuss at the first service. The second issue which again maybe related to the charging system is my Nextbase dashcam turns its screen back on occasionally when set to be off. I think this maybe pulses in the voltage supplied to the socket in the central arm rest. It could also be that the dashcam doesn't like the brand of sd card so another one on its way. If this doesn't work I may look into fitting a voltage regulator to this socket. So far though very happy with the car.

You’ll need new rubber on the front by around 18-20k miles.

Are Continental tyres standard on the new QQ? Mine came with Mitchelin's, but there seems to be a lot of talk about Continental's on here.
