I am told that BMW continues to experience complaints from customers of various "M" cars about oil consumption. Keep in mind that some customers complain and some don't while some say their cars don't consume any excess oil.

The new M5 uses "only" 10W60 Synthetic oil made for BMW by CASTROL. I personally wouldn't mind trying this oil myself in the M3 but I'm not all that pleased with the spread of 50 (60-10=50) in the viscosity rating. Also, the wholesale cost of this oil is $8.95 per quart!

I haven't decided what synthetic oil I will use in my M3 in the future. I have been using BMW's 5W40 synthetic oil and have enough for one more oil and filter change.
