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

: 00 328Ci

Gregor, it is absolutely normal. My 97 did the same and it worried the hell out of me. But at around 10k the consumption got less and less. Your engine will take about 20k miles before it is completely broken in. Remember oil consumption is normal in a new car and is essential until the rings take a seat. Don't worry, drive happy.
