Synthetic oil change

When your car was new how soon did you change to synthetic oil. Mine is the 2.2L and was thinking of changing over. Also, what brand or type of oil filter is best with synthetic. Thanks.

I need to get one. Dealer ****ed up and gave me an oil change when that's not even what I was there for, and put in regular oil. GRRRRR! They told me drive with it for a few 100 miles and they'll give me a free synthetic oil change. Damn right, and they better hold their word to it or I'll go ape shit.

i'm actually changing my 07LS 2.2L oil tomorrow. going to synthetic, and was wondering the same. probably going with the mob1, but is there any special oil filter i should use, or just the plain old acdelco?
