Celebrity endorsements are the only thing that matters when selecting an oil.

Specs! Has to meet manufacturer's requirements. A 5W30 synthetic good enough for the Honda/Acura HTO-06 K23 turbo motor, I would think does well in my motor, a 4B11T (EVO X GSR). Usually I'd go M1, M1EP, PP, or CE.

Cost, specs, and experience of oil.

I like Castrol Edge Extended Performance in my 2014 Mustang GT, runs really smooth and quiet with it

In the daily driver, 2005 Hyundai Elantra, Mobil 1 HM and no issues with it running on Mobil 1

I believe that 'whims' are supernatural occurrences, and thus that buying oil 'on a whim' is a sign from God that oil is definitely the best choice one could ever make.
Sometimes if I don't feel a whim occurring, I know that there is no good oil there in that store, and so I go somewhere else and wait for an oil to literally jump off the shelf at me - and that works with filters, too. Just the last time I was at Wally World, lurking in the automotive section, a Motorcraft filter flew across the isle and smacked me across the face, and landed perfectly in my cart.

I like all oils... I just prefer Amsoil. My wifes car runs quieter on it than M1 and it stopped an annoying lifter tick in my 2500HD that would only occur when driving on the highway.
