No, I think they're built to make a weekly sacrifice to the car gods.

My wife's Avus M5 like to drink her expensive 10w60 oil quite frequently too. Not alarmingly frequently, but under what BMW considers "normal" for regular driving. (06/99 build date)
On the same note, mine, hardly burns any oil, no matter the driving. (06/00)
My e34 M5 burned very little, hardly ever needed to top it off between oil intervals (5-6K) and my e30 drank the shit.

My m5 uses about a litre every 5,000 km. The 97 540 never burned a drop. I changed oil every 10k and it was always full.

270km for 10K? I would walk... you can find closer to 120KM for that price depending on package and condition.

I don't drive my M54B25 enough to notice

Making it my beater though, I'm curious if it burns anything at all having only 90k
