I am thinking of ordering a 540i 6 but wish to know one thing.

What type of engine oil does this car use (10W-30, 10W-40, 10W-60 etc)do you need to add oil in between oil changes. I am asking because the M5 Forum consistently metions the M5 burning oil and for that matter $8.00 per qt 10W-60. I know the 540i has a different engine but just the same I wish to confirm the type of oil and consumption rate if any.

Thanks in advance.
