I just picked up oil for my first 1500 mile change, it was Pennzoil Platinum.

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.

With mine being a 2LT will I be able to tell much of a difference between the Mobil advanced fuel economy vs the extended performance?

In my personal experience, K&N as well as Fram filters leave particulate in the oil. If I were you I'd switch to a Wix or Napa (made by Wix) filter.

You can continue to go to your local Goodyear that you trust. I would stick with the synthetic blend that came in the car. I say this because many of the V6's tend to have oil consumption issues. If your car happens to develop this issue and you have to have warranty work, it will be to your benefit to have proof of oil changes.

Anyone else had this experience with K&N? how about Mobile 1 filters? Read an article comparing filters, Mobil 1 got an "excellent" rating and was mentioned as being nearly identical to K&Ns.

I have always serviced EVERYTHING myself, bikes included. If you can read a service manual and understand it, you can do everything that doesn't require special service tools. It's time well spent with your toys.
Mobil 1 Full Synthetic in everything, oil is cheap compared to engines.
