    Any good pure synthetic is what I would recommend.

    You can still have synthetic oil if you have the oik change "dont somewhere," they'll just charge you a bit more than you can do it yourself.

    He shouldn't go synth until 10K. I e-mailed Subaru about it. Some may feel differently, but that's what they say.

    I have heard the same. Synthetic should not be used during the life of a young engine. Something about it being too slick and not allowing heat to build up and adjust seals. I'm no mechanic though so I don't know if thats BS.
