Oil and Water issues..need advise 2013 M6 F12

About 1,500 miles ago my car called for a quart of oil, so I added a quart. 335 miles ago it called for another quart, so I filled up again, after filling I checked and it was about 75% to Max. Checked today and it is now down to 30% above min. Seems excessive for a daily driver.

I also got a low coolant warning yesterday, so I checked this a.m. cold, and it was above min but below max. Drove and warning cam back, stoped and then drove again, no warning.

Texted my service guy, he said come by tomorrow to top off.

Thoughts?

Car has 35k miles.

These cars can be notorious oil guzzlers during break in but eventually settled down a bit. They do continue to consume oil at an above average pace compared to a normal car but at 35k miles you're way past the break-in period, so this does seem excessive. I would have them take a better look at the car rather than just putting more oil in and letting you be on your way.

I agree with Twitch, need to do a leak down test, also your warranty is almost up right? I would have them investigate as much as possible ASAP

Dealer topped off coolant, said will not top off oil unless warning is on. Car is due for service in 1400 miles (36k service), told service advisor about oil. I am monitoring mileage now. Warranty up in September.

Carly is reporting "Mixture control, bank over cross: mixture too lean" but no check engine light.

700 miles after adding a quart, and going to 75-80% near the top line, the car says add another quart. I believe that even for an oil burner this is excessive.

Car says service in 1400 miles, will ask dealer to do a leak down test.

Can you let me know what's the outcome
My car has only 15k and I've added 3 litres of oil over the last 700 miles. I've only bought the car 3 months ago.
