I drove exactly 8km from the Munich delivery center (with both my '97 540/6 and my '00 540/6) to the A8 autobahn and went 155 NPH all the way to Bonn. - had to stop for gas, though. My company sells to BMW and Munich engineering said to just let off the throttle every so often to suck oil up on the cylinder bores. Neither car has ever used any oil or makes any funny noises.
Enjoy yourself and let 'er rip!
