    So I guess it really depends on how you drive the car. If you drive it aggressively, I will say every 2k-3k? And if you drive normally, then maybe 4k-5k??? And so you guys know what kind of oils do Subaru dealers use? I am planning to to Amsoil by myself instead of going dealers. I've been always using Amsoil for my 370Z. Any oil recommendation??

    I was always a big fan of Motul but if your not racing the car then i dont think it is necessary to dish out the extra $ for a oil like that. I am thinking of running Mobile 1 but i have not looked into that as of yet.

    Amsoil or Motul can run anywhere from $35-45 / 5 quarts vs. Pennzoil or Mobile 1 at $25 / 5 quarts. I talked to my dealer and they said stick with subaru oil but what dealer is not going to say that. I would definitely stay with subaru oil filters.

    IMHO, check the requirements in your manual, or any premium synthetic that is the proper weight. I have used Mobil 1 for years. Again as long as it meets the manufacturer's recommendations..But you will get many opinions on this...
    I was going for the Premium but wanted the headlights and the power seat since I do a lot of long distance and I like to viary position. The leather seats are very very comfy.. It depends on your budget.. Be happy with whatever you get. Enjoy!!

    I am glad i ordered a limited, i wanted black housing, leather, and power seats as well. I am happy you like your pick and it gives me more anxiety on my wait for mine.

    ahhhh I heard about that black housing for limited. I wanted it really bad but yes, my budget was limited. I remember I paid like $600 to black house my 370z's headlights...I miss that housing already but I am happy for what I picked and I will enjoy it! I know that aftermarket parts are not out yet for 2015. Do you guys think it is necessary to buy hood scoop grill later on when it becomes production? I don't want any debris going in and hurt the intercooler

    I don't know if the hood grill changes the air flow volume. I never gave a second thought about debris on the radiator or oil cooler if there was one, so I don't think the hood grill is necessary. I'd rather opt for a better set of wheels. Thats me.

Oh and that is when warranty runs out, how convenient. so what that your manual says 6 or 7k. I would not trust it, because its "synthetic oil", come on. Most I would do is 4.5k without a change. But that's me.

    My buddy bought a brand new 2013 wrx hatch. He put 12k on it. he changed his oil at the recommended intervals given by the manual which i believe was 7k. So first 1000 miles, oil change, second was at 8k and then at 12k, BOOM goes the motor. It was an engine failure due to oil issue (exact reason i do not know), and mechanic from Subaru said, oil should have been changed earlier and this could have been avoided. It was confirmed by the head mechanic and another one from a different dealer. Just an FYI.
    My head is spinning from all the regurgitated garbage in this post.

    I highly doubt that the head mechanic had a UOA performed to show that sheer was responsible for the damage. Ridiculous. This is an example of empty claims.

    I agree w Zax. Get the whole story..follow the manufacturer's recommendation as a minimum. Do mods only after copious research. Your WRX is not designed like a taxicab. And.....this statement will get me in trouble for sure.... if you can't drive a manual transmission, you might want to think twice about performance Metric cars.
