I have a 2010 Sti 5 door and my dealer told me to use a synthetic blend for the first 5 oil changes THEN switch to full synthetic. The oil you use is dependant on the climate that you live in. A safe bet is to use 5W30. Brand is not really important. Castrol synthetic blend is pretty good.

Good luck, plus you can probably call a dealer in another city or drive to one......come on bro, its an Sti, they are MADE for wicked road trips!

I have an 05 sti. its the same motor as the 09. you definitley want to use a high quality full synthetic oil 5w-30. check the level often because it is normal for this car to burn a little oil do to the turbo. especially if you start making performance mods.

How often do you do an oil change with synthetic oil?


It depends on how hard you drive you car. I change mine anywhere between 2500-3000 miles on my 2007 sti. I believe subaru recommends that you change it every 3750 miles.
