You are clearly doing excellent maintenance on your vehicles and have 
also had good mecnahincal fortune as far as heating problems, etc.  
Clearly, you are going to get excellent engine life regardless of 
whether you use synthetic or a high-quality petro-oil (and both are 
considerably tweaked and modified by the manufacturers.)

Shux, use your own judgement.  I like the extra edge I get from 
running synthetics.  Since both my cars are Turbos, I would not 
consider doing otherwise...that's simply *my* judgement.

I suspect your feelings aren't all *that* tender or you would have a 
tough time on this list!!  ;-)  Nudge, nudge....
