OK. Do you get free oil changes for the life of the car, or does that benefit run out eventually? If this benefit does end, then that's when I would start testing other oils.
The Amsoil OE 0W-20 has worked well in my car so far (16k on the odometer right now; I've changed the oil 3x). My next two oil changes will be using Pennzoil Platinum 0W-20, which I've read is good stuff but I can't vouch for it personally yet.
