Does the 540i have the same oil consumption rate as the M5?
Does the 540i use the same $8.00 per qt 10W-60 oil as the M5?

I test drove a 540i 6 for about 10 mins. The Transmission seems very stiff. Iam not sure if that was because the vehicle was parked for weeks or even months at the dealer or if that is the way the tranny is suppose to feel. I am a vetran mannual driver and my opinion of the stiffness is relative to many mannual trans that I have driven. The Japanese are vey smooth.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.
