I returned the next day and demanded they replace it and after a brief discussion with the Service Manager they did. The 0-20 looks and felt lighter than the 10-30 they had used so trust they changed it.

Odd thing I've noticed is there is some white vapour from a cold startup ( at any time of day ) but at this time haven't noticed much oil or water loss at this stage so think it's just water vapour in the exhaust buring off. I did mention it to the Service manager while he was changing to the correct oil but he was non commital as to what it might have been.

Has anyone noticed if the 2012 Impreza is particularly Vapourious on cold startups as my other car ( Ford Fiesta ) doesn't seem to do it when started at the same times ?
no vapor but i believe thats more temperature/ humidity then anything. Unless you are losing coolant the vapor isnt coming from the engine but rather the condensation in the exhaust and muffler.
