    need your opinion

    I purchased my 04 wrx at Fitzgerald's auto mall.( used for $17,990 ) They gave me a maintenance booklet which included FREE Oil changes for as long as I owned my car. I went in today to get a free oil change and asked how much it would cost if I wanted to upgrade to synthetic. The service guy told me it would be an extra $6 a quart if I wanted to upgrade to synthetic and that they would be using Syntec 5w30. Do you think it is worth the extra $ for the synthetic or should I just stay w/ regular oil and get it changed every 2 mo. or so. I don't really drive my car real hard all the time. Any input would be appreciated. thanks


    oh yeah I did not get the synthetic upgrade when I got my oil changed today if that makes any diffrence.

    Free oil changes, but it's $6.00 per quart for synthetic? So that would be about $30.00 total, right? That's not bad considering 5 quarts alone of Mobil 1 costs at least $21.00 or so. I say spend the $30.00 per oil change on the synthetic. It comes out to be the same price as doing it yourself, if not less.
