At 129k, all you can do now, is Maintain...
It really does not matter.
Use what you feel is best for your area. The wear that has already been introduced is NOT worth the COST of Syn's...
If it were me, I would just run 10-40 with Energy Release additive and Change every 3-4k.
Should do you for another 80k, as long as you do not race it every other day.

I'm using Valvoline Max Life on my 142,000 Ka and it seems to work well. I'm just trying to take a little extra precausion because I like to drive my car hard sometimes. I would feel comfortable using Castrol oil too.. I think its called Agx? something like that..its like $1.15 a quart, compared to valvolines $2.40 price tag. Its just up to you...
