- Rod bearings at 84,000 miles
84,000 miles replaced, with the last 60,000ish miles under my ownership. Oil change intervals of 3,000 to 4,000 miles with Motul 7100 10w60. My car is my long distance commuter, from SoCal to San Francisco, Vegas, Phoenix, Tucson, and points in between. I also track her on a regular basis, and she is not afraid of the redline. Daily shift points for me are at 6000 rpm, unless she's cold or I need to be quiet.
My e60 is three of three m5s in my current garage. I'm meticulous about proper warm up and cool down with ///M engines. Much like WallyM5, I drive all my m5s hard, but never put them away dirty -- mechanically speaking. Consumables get replaced well ahead of schedule like bushings, fluids, and now rod bearings.
Attached is my Blackstone, I'll add my rod bearing pictures later today when I can get on my computer. The pictures of my rod bearings can also be found on my original thread as well.
EDIT: Oil consumption after 2,800 miles: ZERO. Zero, even after an 800 mile trip to NorCal. The top is the the top and bottom is the bottom.
