Default first oil change

Was wanting to go to a synthetic my first oil change in a 2006 300C. Was thinking Mobil 1, 5w20. Has anyone tried a synthetic in the variable displacement engines yet and if so, any problems?

I put Mobil 1 5w20 in my 05 on the first oil change......no problems. Chrysler uses mobil one in the crossfire and srt8 so why not? Just use the correct weight ( 5w20) do not substitude due to the MDS system. The srt8 does not have mds and uses 0w40.
