I honestly wouldn't recommend it. Most will use a range like 1-5, 1 being bad, 5 being best. There are expensive testers out there, they will work well but cost $700+ so unless you plan to check you oil condition every month, I'd send an oil sample off to a testing lab and have them tell you all the info they discovered about your sample.

Why are you wanting to do an oil test? I believe some people on one of these bmw/n54 forums has found that doing oil changes at 5,500 miles (with quality 0W-40/5W-30 synthetic oil) shows no noticeable difference in engine life degradation when compared to changing oil at 3,000 miles.

I actually tested it Let me make it clear that it will not replace my regular 5000miles changes - more just for fun/interest if it actually has some merrit.
