    VX recommend 5/30, vx specific, fully synthetic for all Vec c engines. If your only doing 6k a year I would still recommend you do yearly oil and filter changes as the bare minimum.

    Official figures is 20,000 miles or 1 year - whichever comes first.

    So in answer to your question, get the oil changed yearly as this will come round sooner than the mileage will.

    And as others have said - 5w/30 fully synth long life oil.

    I will do about 4k a yr in mine. Was on 31900 ish in July 11 when I bought it, now done 33900 ish. Is there much to be gained by doing a 6 monthly oil change? I mainly do fairly short journey at the moment.
