Its good that you are monitoring it keep it up.
I had this in my new e46 after the first 5000 it was the tightest
engine I ever had . I used 5k oil change intervals but it would never
be down at all in the 70k miles I owned it.
Did you read the break in guidelines?
If it does this in the next 5k I would start to worry.
Thats kind of what I figured. I appreciate the advice. I followed the break in guidelines to a T and always make sure to let the oil and all parts warm up before going above 3k rpms.
