how often you had to fill up oil within the first 5900km?
I am now at 4500 miles (which is around 7200km) and I had to fill up oil already 4 times. I might have the same problem with the engine. Do you probably have the report your BMW dealer sent to the BMW AG?

According your initial post, you got your car mid september? I got mine end of October (didn't order it, saw the car at the dealership and signed the contract the same day, fell in love with the car immediately). Considering the transportation time to US, our engines might be from the same production line/month?

how long did it take them to change the engine?

It took them 2 weeks " 1 week transportation" and one installation.
I got a 520d GT for this time

It will be interesting to see, how much time they need to get an engine from Germany to USA

My 650i is Finished

During the 1000km
oil consumption test BMW Poland
Equipped me with 18" wheels with great winter tyres for the test.
After 1000km's it burned 1,2l of oil.
BMWAG got the raport of the oil and gave instructions to my Dealer to give me a loner for about
3 weeks. I got a 520d GT it was slower than any BMW I have ever driven.
