I guess it all depends on how long you plan to keep the vehicle.
I know of individuals who used regular 'ol dino (including the bulk oil) from dealerships and have driven over 200K miles. I also know of those who used synthetics and put the same amount of miles on their vehicles.
Are you really going to drive your vehicle for that long because most people don't.
I'm going through the same process now with my '11 Accord. I can get 0W-20 bulk oil change from the dealer for $30. Or I can change the oil myself and buy synthetic for a little more.
