Default Tune up time. Want your info

So im just over 3000 miles on my car. I used to use mobil 1 with my mustang. Is this still the best on the subaru? What do you all recommend? What are the best type of spark plugs and wires to use? How hard is it on these cars to change the plugs? Thanks for all the help.

And post in the right forum.
And read the sticky threads in that right forum now that I moved this for you.
And realize that the opinions on this subject can only be quantified in scientific notation so they odds of you getting real help are basically less than zero.

I use mobil 1 in both my 02 and 08. I even used it in my 05 STi (before i had to sell it, bitter story) along with Mobil 1 oil filters. Never had issues. Alot of people on subaru forums strongly suggest to use the oem subaru oil filters.

It's available readily at most auto stores and some Wal-Marts.

I have been using mobil 1, but would consider changing to something else, but it would have to be something readily available.
Does rotella mean the Rotella T that trucks use.? I'm going o look at the oil FAQ again.
