M3-Oil Consumption (archive)

Had my M3 for about 3 months now. Was traffic racing a Carrera Last night and came home.

Got some valve clatter.

Proceeded to check the oil. Hmmmmm...a little low.

Wound up filling it with 2.25 quarts of Castrol-Synthetic. (Yes, I'll switch to Redline when it comes time to do the full oil change)

Since I assume the dealer did the last oil change and might not have compensated for the filter or used like a 5-30 oil, how much oil does the M3 use between changes?

Don't say none as my Dad's Boxster has used close to 4 quarts of oil between it's 24k mile oil changes.
