IS300 burning oil???

Guys,

My wifes IS300 is burning about 1 quart every three weeks. I just did a compression test on it and the test came out

Piston 1 180
Piston 2 175
Piston 3 150
Piston 4 175
Piston 5 175
Piston 6 150

So i know the 150's are not good but in no way should this be enough to burn that much oil. I dont think it is the head gasket because there is no oil in the water and or vise versa. Next thing on my list is the EGR system but i figured i would ask you guys.

Also the car is not smoking...........

might be the oil ring on the piston? There a tread about it somewhere here about an i4 accord eating oil. Compression came out fine but it kept eating oil.

^ that sucks! there is oil on the threads of the plugs when i took them out on 3 and 6. Well i just bought new plugs and i am going to put this back together which is a Bi***. I will look into other stuff and if it is the oil rings like you state i am just going to look for another engine i think.

Anyone else have any cheaper ideas before i move forward?
