Default Best Oil to use in my WRX?

it don't really matter THAT much. For synthetic oil I chose the mobil. Because it's cheap, easy to find and also used by top european performance cars. There are other debatable brands (Royal purple for example) claim to deliver better performance. I haven't seem any solid proves thus far. Not saying mobile is the best but for those might deliver better formance it will be minor.
If there is a brand that provides the MOST performance gain I believe everyone shoud know it by now.

If you treasure car then change you oil as directioned and you should be just fine.
