You said it best. There is nothing wrong with taking pride in nice things but it's another when class and status is tagged along with them.

One last thing, don't discount Bridgestone tires because of one lousy set of tires that came with the car. I switched to Bridgestone premium tires and I'm very happy with them.

Salvage is the way to beat the system.
On another note I'm quiet disappointed to see that the ML uses 6X9 speakers.

When a part is not as easy to access I will replace it with a proven factory part. This is where you shouldn't skimp out especially when there is a good bit of labor involved.

What I would do at this point is use a thicker grade of oil like a 5W-30 synthetic and see if you consumption comes down. If it does then it's your oil control rings.
