    Have you considered doing the 02 Pilot mod for that oil burning problem?

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    BP, have you tried 10w60 ? My Indy recommended it for oil consumption issues. That's the one used on the e46 M3 engines. I've been using it on the ZHP for 2,000 miles with no side effects. It seems to help my car (I was adding one quart every 1,000 miles).

    I replaced the OFHG and Vanos hose around 1,500 miles ago. That could be another factor in my case.

    I don't think that is an appropriate viscosity for the M54. It's too thick, resulting in being harder to flow in cold temps (such as now), more wear when engine is cold, lower fuel consumption, and reduced power.

    i agree, for winter it's way too thick. i run 5w40 year round.
