    Synthetic Oil?

    Hey Everyone. Just bought a new 2010 WRX.

    is it better for me to run synthetic oil? if so at what intervals?

    also does the car come factory with standard oil or synthetic?

    Wait for the 1st 3K miles then switch to synthetic. Whatever oil you use. Change it every 3K.
