The extended performance has extra additives that allow you to go longer without a change.

They won't help if you have to change oil due to dust or other junk getting into the motor, the help delay oil breakdown.

With that said, I still recommend that you change your oil on time and certainly, the 15K figure on the extended performance is not for "severe" driving. That 15K figure is based on grandma in her Caddy going down the interstate at a painful 55mph!

So I think the consensus is that the regular synthetic is probably what you should be looking at since you plan on doing regular oil changes.
