I've been using AmsOil since 1980. I use it in all seven of the vehicles I service. I use AmsOil EFM (Classic ESP) 5W40 Euro Synthetic in our '04 9-5 Aero and have for the past 90,000 miles with NO ill effects. Consumption rate has remained unchanged. Around town it's about nil but on extended highway drives can be up to 1/2 Qt in 1,000 miles. I too change the oil in our Aero at 5,000 mile intervals.
AmsOil markets its different "European" synthetics based on the requirements of the emissions systems in its target market groups. It seems that various emissions systems like oils with differing amounts of sulfated ash, phosphorus and sulfur. I've seen vehicles with premature catalyst failure that may have been subjected to out of spec lubricants. For that reason I stay with an oil engineered for the requisite spec.
You should also consider using the AmsOil "Ea" oil filter to go with their oil. On my car it's 15K51. Your car uses the same one. Read about Ea oil filters on the AmsOil site.
FWIW I used AmsOil AMO 10W40 (their original product) in a '90 Volvo 745 Turbo wagon that we kept for 14 years and sold with 306,000 miles on it. The drivetrain was completely original and it ran great! 5,000 mile oil changes and consumption NEVER varied.
AmsOil makes very good products that offer superior levels of drive-train protection. You should consider their transmission fluid too.
