I switched to Synthetic for the winter... in the spring i'll may switch back... not sure

It was hard starting my car the other day when it was 24 deg F... so I figured synthetic is the way to go. I know several people in the porsche club who go synthetic for the winter and regular oil in the summer

I thought the same thing about switching back and forth... but i've read a lot of articles and supposedly it is a huge myth. Casterol's website even says that it is OK

if I get around to it, i'll post the sites I read... but just ask google
