E39 M5 90k

Hi Folks,

A guy wanted to know what sort of oil consumption to expect from a 5 year old M5 at 90K. He's getting about 700m/pint and has been assured that this is within tolerance!

Thanks

While this may sound very high, this is within safe standards. Any more and i'd be concerned, but with an M5 quite a bit of oil does get burned off as it is a high-revving engine.
