The S63B44TU should not be burning oil! ... and with a 1200 mile initial service requirement, how is it that someone would need oil at 2000 miles (as above)? Thats only about 800 miles after the first oil change....

If your needing to add oil that frequently, I suggest you grab a sample and have it sent out for analysis. The folks at Blackstone can check the metallurgy and chemical residue in the oil and tell you what any underlying issues might be. I send a sample out at EVERY oil change on my vehicles. Its a cheap ($25) investment in your engine. I also save these along with my vehicle records for the increased resale value. (I also have the oil done on my X6M (S63) and M6 (S63TU) at every 7500 miles instead of the 15K specified interval - I'm just not comfortable with 15K...).

I have attached the Blackstone report for the M6 sample pulled at the initial 1200 mile service interval. They provide a very nice report which includes a discussion of their findings...
