So your statemtment that they use the wrong oil is incorrect. They use the proper weight that meets the requirements that subaru wants. Then they will stock synthetic stuff as well as subaru synthetic oil.
I wasn't implying that they use the wrong oil, I was implying that they don't stock the correct oil.
Where is an STI owner going get EXTRA-S? Can't buy it it in quarts, they come in 5 gallon containers.
Why should an STI owner have to look else where other than the dealership if he wants EXTRA-S just because the dealerships don't stock it. Shouldn't SOA force the dealerships to sell stuff that's required in the manual?
I was just stating that just because the manual say "X" should be use, doesn't mean that the dealership will use "X" stated by the manual, which is ironic.
