Is royal purple motor oil worth the extra couple bucks??
Not in my eyes (and "3rd eye") Honda dealers switched to Honda Genuine Full Synthetic 0w-20 and I'm in heaven!

Edit: The MMS will dictate whether you need the additives of a full synthetic or whether your short miles will make that irrelevant.

Only if your car is exclusively doing track duty. I don't believe that Royal Purple has been engineered for regular heating/cooling cycles that a daily driver goes through. I use Amsoil myself, but there are other brands out there that are less expensive and which offer suitable performance for "normal" daily driving.
