I also got the same letter in the mail in May about the 7500 mile interval. On mysubaru.com the intervals to record your oil changes are at 3750 miles. My dealer's opinion is 7500 miles is little steep but I know they're out to make money. I'm just not gonna go past 4500 miles no matter what and screw what everybody thinks.

    Why not just use one of the many oils proven to work good in these engines. Their are UOA's all over other forums showing how this oil shears to a 20w in no time. Its fine under normal driving conditions but if you like to drive a little spirited occasionally I suggest trying motul/t6/redline. They seem to have the best UOA's from what I can see.
