When I initially purchased the car I averaged 750 miles as well. I took the car into service back in January and they replaced some of the oil hoses, but no results.

The car is stock minus the Dinan tuner, so I would guess right around 600HP- please feel free to correct me if Iím wrong

I also park in the same spot daily and havenít seen any external leaks, in addition to not smelling or seeing any indications of excess oil burn. Iím racking my brain over this- close to trading the damn car in for a AMG GTs.

I purchased it with 19K miles, previously driven by an old man who babied the car. It was practically brand new when I picked it up. Dyno is the plan, but if I keep dealing with the oil issue and no help from BMW I may just trade it in for a AMG GTs

i heard from my mechanic who had f10 m5 that when you baby these cars during the break in period they run into oil problems. he says he destroyed the car from mile 0 and he never had to put in a quart
