You don't consider $6+ per quart expensive, times 8 quarts per oil/filter change?

I just had mine changed last week to Penz Platnium. The engine idles very smooth with it and seems to perform well.

Mobil 1 full synthetic, look at the oil filler cap on Ferrari, Mercedes, Audi, etc etc, you'll find Mobil 1 written on the cap.

Mobil 1 5w30 Full Synthetic in all the cars... Usually DIY, but sometimes I let the dealership do it, since I worked there. I use Amsoil in the motorcycles.

Check the new ones. I believe Ferrari uses Pennzoil Platinum in their newer models.

Edit: Pennzoil Ultra is recommended by Ferrari.
