Mystery Oil consumption-M50 (archive)

My '92 525i(m) seems to have an appetite. Yet I can't locate any "tell tale signs".

The facts:
~1qt oil/1200miles
No black spot in the drive way
No black smoke out the tail pipe

Where is it going !!

Anybody have some M50 experiences to share. I'm open to any educated guesses as well.


P.S. My car has 2 of the "classic" E34 problems...door panel vinyl coming unglued, the slightly rocking drivers seat rails, and the sword/fan speed BS. Beyond that, this car provides the most enjoyable drive I have ever know. It continues to thrill me every time I take it out. So, help me keep it. This oil issue has got to go.
