High Oil Consumption

You need new valve stem seals. My 981 560 SEL did the same thing (burn about a quart/100 mi.) with only 55k on the car and was told by a local Benz shop that the seals are too soft and all of them came that way from the factory. They do em all the time at this shop. Mine luckily was under waranty, $2500 job. Both heads came off and valve job with new harder seals and has not leaked or burned a drop since then which was 60k mi ago.
