Mobil 1 Synthetic as recommended by the Engineers at General Motors. I will change it after the first 500 miles. Then every 3000 after that

Yeah im a royal purple man myself but will be sticking to Mobil 1 for the warranty. I know they arent suppost to be able to void it over just a different oil, but better safe than sorry. Also anyone thought about using the Mobil 1 extended performance oil?

These guys make a great lifetime filter. http://www.gopurepower.com/ Yes, they cost more up front, but they outperform ANY paper filter out there and you never have to buy one again. They are easy to clean. Maybe a little overkill for a stock engine, but since you just spent $30K+, and are spending big bucks on synthetic oil, people have a tendency to overlook the filter.

Just my < .02

The cars come from the factory with Mobil1 synthetic???
I would use that anyway, but figured they put dino oil in at the factory (cheaper). Oh and I always use NAPA "Gold" filters.
