Oil leaking, problem or not?

     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Have a 2013 M5 with 6000 miles on it. Just had oil topped off 2-3 weeks ago while I had a tire change. Noticed a patch of oil under the car this morning, probably not more than 10 droplets. Should I get this looked at by my SA?

Like a few others Ive read, my M5 is a oil guzzler, prob needs a quart every 1000 miles but I do a lot of stop/go traffic (live in LA).

Thanks for the advice

Get it looked at -- shouldn't be leaking oil.

i'm certain a quart every 1000 miles is not normal, stop/go traffic considered. If you have oil underneath your car, something is wrong. I'm pretty sure it s a closed system except for the air intake and the exhaust. any white smoke via exhaust????

def get it checked out.
