    hey guys, i just ran out of dealership free oil changes lol, so im lookin to get some advice on what oil you guys recommend to put into my car? I used Royal Purple before in my ol truck and it ran great, but its freakin spendy lol. would appreciate some suggestions. Oh and Also would like to know what you guys recommend for oil filters? I used to use Fram Toughguard filters, but i have been out of the oil change loop for awhile lol
