I guess we can add Porsche to the list, but what do they know;-)

When my oil temp gauge is approaching 110'C I'm happy to have Mobil 1 in my
engine, same goes for -30'C startups.
 IMHO, If you don't have temperature extremes, or a turbo, or ever go to a
racetrack, there's prolly not much difference  between having good quality
dino oil or synthetic. I like to think of it as a bit of engine insurance.
Those $100 oil changes are a bit of a pain though.
