Newer BMW's are known for oil consumption. BMW will probably tell you it is normal. You could try a heavier grade oil in hopes of reducing the consumption rate but I would talk to a BMW shop before proceeding. https://www.consumerreports.org/cro/magazine/2015/06/excessive -oil-consumption/index.htm

Using oil was normal - 60 years ago. Now they use low tension oil rings and water thin oil to gain 0.1 mpg on the EPA tests and tell you that using oil saves you money ; (
