That's the problem, that if a dealer states that engine within the specs, than repairs will not be covered.. Most manufacturers acceptable specs are very broad. My SA mentioned that BMW won't even perform compression or leak down tests unless oil consumption is at quart for 700 miles.. So I can get 7 more opinions and all of them will still fall into "acceptable" range. My guess is that the engine was not properly broken in..

I am still not clear to why consumption increases after first several thousand miles.. Any scientific explanation behind it?
