My M5 is burning engine oil.

Got my new M5 in midOctober, now it's already 4K Km on it. It needs to refill engine oil approx. per 400km。 I always say to my friend, my car doesn't need to change engine oil, it drinks all. Anyone has same situation? LOL. (Want to post a photo of my car. But cannot be done at iPhone .

I'm in T.O. as well.

I'm consuming about 1 litre per 1000km on average. I make my monthly trip to Town & Country to top it up. Now, they don't even ask me where is the oil bar sits on as they simply hand over a bottle of oil and off I go.

I noticed that if I drive the car aggressively for most of the time, then it tends to drink more, not sure if this is a myth or fact.
