on my '99 328i, I don't need to add any oil between oil changes (approx 10k miles between changes). I pour in 6 quarts, I drain out 6 quarts and the mark is always on full on the dip stick.

(the manual states 7 quarts, but when I used 7 quarts, the mark was about 1.5 inches above full on the dip stick)

You should have your dealer check it out, but I'm afraid they'll probably say that it's normal (they consider 1qt every 1k mile normal).


: : At 4k I just added my first quart of oil. Seems reasonable to me, but wondered what other peoples experience has been.

: : Gregor
: : 00 328Ci

: I have 8100 miles todate and the car has yet to consume any oil. Dipstick shows the full mark still.
