The experiment to determine if a catch can can reduce the oil consumption on the M54 engine is over. My results are:

394 miles: no oil consumption at all

NOTE: I have uninstalled the catch can that I installed in this video. I was getting an occasional problem where I could smell oil fumes and it was honestly very annoying and unpleasant. Please do not purchase the oil catch can I used in this video. Find a better one that doesn't have the oil level indicator on the side and thus will be better sealed to vacuum. Even then, take great care to completely seal up every part of that can.

There is an alternative to running a catch can if you live in a climate where condensation and clogging of the OEM CCV system is not a problem. Please see this video:
