I'm focusing on the weight

The dealership shouldn't be using 0w20 on his RC F motor..

Anywho.. To each their own as usual

This states, if anything, 0W-20 could be an option to 5W-30 but doesn't specify the RC F supporting or negating this. In any case, you brought a good point about the engine cap (and manual too states 5W-30). As such, I've just sent an email to my dealer's Service Manager. Hope to get an answer Monday.

I've worked in Professional Motorsports for 10 years. If you want to spend the money and want the best, Motul.
Mobil 1 is also incredibly good as well, we ran it in one of the Porsche Teams i used to work for and its flawless.

He called me first thing in the morning and said they made a mistake with 0W-20. They'll be putting in Mobil 1 full synthetic 5W-30.

BOOM! There it is

Only oil I use. Incredible shear protection, and it's really not too costly.
