Thanks to everyone that replied. The general concensus is that the engine is burning oil at a level that is still somewhat concidered normal for this AMG engine. My customer will live with it, and continue to have his synthetic oil changed/serviced every 6k...

Thanks for the quick response. I felt a bit less apprehensive about trying the blower amp[module] after some reassurance. Anyway the blower motor is fed by the ign. switch [through a fuse] and the resistor[module] grounds it. I had my doubts since the blower w...
