I always used mobil 1 full syntech. I asked my sister to get it changed once and the mechanic put in quaker state and I immediately noticed the difference. I went to the dealer, which at that point i asked him what he put in my car earlier; he replied Quaker State REGULAR 10w-30. I was extremely disappointed I used it for 1K miles then got mobil 1 put in again and I used it for 2K and went back to my regular schedule of 3K intervals... (I know mobil can go for 4-5K, but I won't risk it )

btw I'm trying to learn how to change the oil myself now ($50 is kinda expensive for mobil 1 at repairshops.. anyone got tips? )

First off, didn't vote for any of your choices as I don't run any of those! You should have put an "OTHER" option too.
I run AMSOIL 10W30 Oil.

Get a set of Car Ramps, an Oil Filter Wrench & A small set of Wrenches & Sockets!
As for the actual labour part, that is the easy part!
