: :: 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.

Thank you. I feel like a new parent, worrying about every sniffle. I think this new 328Ci has put more smiles on my face than any car I have owned in years. Can't tell you why, it is neither the flashiest, fastest, nor any other est I can think of; it just has a wonderful sense of balance that makes me smile when I drive it. Your comments are much appreciated.
