heather, I'm sorry to say but your man has a super twisted view on synthetic oil...
Every enthusiast I know uses synthetic.
Every enthusiast also tends to romp on the car a bit harder.
Everyone I know that romps on their car too much has had motor problems.
I can't say I win, but I believe my point is valid.
You still win because you're the only member of CWRX to successfully score with speedette
