My oil consumption at its worst was 1 litre every 1500 miles and I had a big oil leak from the front turbo which was actually dripping down and covering the subframe. So if you're using that much oil it must be going somewhere.

As an interesting aside, there have been a fair few reports across the pond of people experiencing high oil consumption using other grades of oil which is resolved by using BMW spec 5w30 or 0w30. I have no experience of this but it might be an option for you guys to try.
