I'd recommend Royal Purple, I've been using it in my '04 Legacy for over a 140k miles. It was recommended to me by the Subaru Service Manager, and since he's a family member, and I only pay about $17 for an oil change there, I'm fairly sure he's not just trying to hock me stuff. Just my own $.02
Pennzoil Ultra 5W30 SN seems to be working out really well in my car. Maybe it's something you'd consider. I would also only use the OEM oil filter.

Royal Purple doesn't have that good of results (according to UOAs).
Rotella T6 used to be great, mainly due to its high zinc content. Since they reformulated it a couple of years ago it's middle of the road. That said, I still run T6 in my car, but now I use a zinc additive along with it.
