F10 M5 drinking oil like the E60?

After 3k miles i need to add a quart of oil.. No big deal, but like the E60 I guess i need to have a couple extra quarts in the trunk.. Anyone else?

At 1200 miles my car needed a quart. Perfect timing for the first service.

Hi I am at 7300km in my 2012 M5 and have had to top up oil twice once at 3000 and again around 7000. I am wondering if this normal ?

The car likes a drink. It took a litre at 1700 miles (though the dealer had failed to top it up fully at the 1200 mile service). I've now done 2400 miles and am about half a litre away from another 1 litre top up. I am doing lots of town driving which can't be helping.

Unless it is going to give rise to engine problems, I'm not that bothered by its thirst.

Seat those rings guys!! Rev the nuts off it briefly when everything is nice and warmed up and hold full throttle in 7th gear (S mode) at low revs/speed occasionally.

BTW, my car has not needed one bit of oil added. Of course I had the oil replaced at the 1200 miles service, but at 2300 miles currently it hasn't budged from the max marking.

Finally some technical sense!

Just like with a new race engine. Torque it up/down (in cycles) at low revs. :-)

Probably very similar consumption, though YMMV slightly. Mine bonged yesterday as I pulled into my job that I need to add a liter/quart ASAP. Mileage was at 1060. The dealership opted not to perform the break-in service at that time but scheduled me for next Friday. Incidentally, they used BMW 5W-30.
