Subaru says 30K. I do mine about every 15K just because I am a maintenance freak.

I think you can go as long as 60k, but most people (at least that I know of) change every 30k miles. Check your manual though.

I've been told 30k is regular, 15k is for performance or track driving. It's real easy so you might as well do it regularly.

I do mine at 10k miles or less if track day.

Case in point there are a few STI here that are passing the 150k milestone, and they follow a similar schedule and are track driven. Their cars are in better condition than most garage princesses.
