Default Best oil

What is the best oil to use for a 2004 350Z? How many miles before I should change the oil?

Here, I'll make it EASY for ya...3 thousand miles

Platinum 5W-30 Full Synthetic is what I use. But is it the very, very, very best ?...who cares. At the high end they're all comparable.

I use Mobil 1 0w/40 in my Z, but in my Alfa's this is the only thing I'll use:

Yep- I've been using Mobil 1 0-40W synthetic in both my street and race Zs for a couple of years now. The new 'FS' 0-40W formulation seems to be an improvement and is both readily available and (relatively) cheap.
