Searched for you

I top up every 1250 km and always carry 1L of oil in the trunk, I'm pretty sure it's the same for most people or at least those who are not shy to drive it like an ///M car regularly.

My dealership shop foreman (yesterday while I was in for break in service) also mentioned the M5 will burn thru 0.7 litre/1000km, as he showed me the BMW Technical Directive as being normal oil consumption until to about 10,000km and will begin to slow down on the rate of oil consumption.
