You misunderstood my point.

Premium tyres are not long-lasting versions of budget tyres. They are better in all kinds of other ways. There is some evidence that expensive long-life oils are only "better" than standard-life oils in that they last longer. If this is actually true, then they are only worth buying if you make use of the extra life.

The issue about hard/gentle use is supposed to be addressed by the CBS system but I accept that this can only be so smart.

TBH I expect I will spend the extra and do inter-service oil changes because I do the equivalent in many other aspects of my life.
