I am comfortable with changing my synthetic once a year (cars have about 4-6000 miles each at the change) but with my very raced turbo Eclipse I was changing the synthetic about every 4000 miles since it was a high severe duty drive nearly all the time.
What brand and type of synthetic oil are you putting through only 4,000 - 6,000 miles of use and only changing it once per year? That's severe service usage. Cellulose/paper filtration media secured by glue inside an oil filter also might not hold up to a years worth of severe service usage. Something to consider. Be careful.
