    Genuine always.

    I use Motul 10W-40 because I daily drive it and beat on it. Personal preference though.

    EDIT: 10W-40 due to the age and mileage of engine. 127,000 KM and 03.

    Subaru will tell you 10w 40 semi synethic for it as I used to have same car and that's what main dealer will say ,

    I always used 10w 40 fully synthetic and genuine oil filter in my old bl5 turbo but have used blueprint filter also with no issues 👍

    This is a link to thread on SN. Its an Opie oil thread where you can give your model and spec and Tim ( opie oil rep) will give you answer what its best for you. What l remember from the time l asked it was for mildly moded newage is 5w40 for classic 10w40 and going up depending on mods, use etc. You may post your spec and see what he recommends
    Also you can ring the local lads Dave/rsr , Ciaran/asd to see what they recommend.
    I can only speak about the Millers stuff. It was best at the time expensive but lm very happy with it.
