Topping off oil every 600 miles

Ever since I got my 07 335 I have been going to the dealership every 600 miles because my oil level is said to be low. During my first interactions, the dealer told me its because the engine is High performance and it will burn through oil faster. After several interactions with the service people they said my oil sensor was toast so I replaced it.

It was good for another 1200 miles, and back to its old ways again. They did further checks they realized that their was a leak. So that was taken care of.

After 800 miles were back to square one. But now the engine fan is going crazy dying every drive. I park in my garage and I can hear the fan going nuts.

Anybody have any ideas? I also had to replace the transmission 2 months ago at 53000 miles.

Thanks

I had the same feeling but do far I have not yet spent too much because of the cpo warranty, but that's going to expire here this year. I love my car and the thought has crossed my mind, its just hard to let go lol
