Hey, you've got me beat, but not by much! My kids are also close to the car, having grown up with it. Mine's up to about a quart every 3000 miles, but I think most of that is the oil pan gasket leak because the exhaust looks clean.

: Have an '86 535i with 295,692 miles, also original engine, clutch and transmission! One quart of oil every 5K miles. Have worn out a few items in close to 300K, but I expect some of that. Believe learning to double-clutch on a worn-out 2002 tranny taught me the habit, thus saving the 535i. Anyway, great car, super engine, much fun to drive and own. A real part of the family (just ask the kids!).
