Mercs are a problem car, I love them, but I have to admit they do go wrong very often.
Why not try logging on the Mercedesclub. org. uk site, its free to register and there are people with far more Mercedes knowledge then you will find here.
Good luck

2008 mercedes benz ml63 amg oil consumption problem

Is the merc dealer serviced??, sometimes if you change brands of oils in synthetics >>semi synthetics you will get excess oil useage. City driving will tend to use more oil, but the merc should be able to do its 10,000k betwwen oilchanges.
Anyway, check what oil is being used in both weight example 0-60w, 5w-30 etc and by brand, check that the API oil spec meets what is required for your vehicle example API SM, SJ, SL etc.

Mercedes-Benz SLK55, what are the biggest problems

The biggest problem is the gearbox though - it simply isn't up to the job and ruins the fun at every opportunity. Try manually shifting up on the redline and instead of punching home the next gear the box dithers, sending you crashing into the rev limiter. This is one AMG that really should have had a manual, or an SMG style sequential box.
