Is this normal oil usage for these cars?
Should I be concerned and take into stealership?
There are no oil leaks that I can see under the car (although with all the underbody panels an oil leak would go unnoticed), and no visible signs of oil leakage when viewed from top.
I've owned a ton of cars thru my years, and have never had to add oil at such a low mileage value on any of them.
I do check my oil from time to time, and when last checked, the level showed approximately 80-90% of the way to 'Max' on the gauge.
Wouldn't worry about it at all.
Apparently if your car consumes 1qt per every 1000km or 1200km BMW says its ok. lol.
