I have had my 650GC for several weeks now. It is absolutely a great car. All
expectations are met and exceeded. One problem. It is using oil. At the current rate
the first quart will be gone by the 1400-1500 mark. I talked to the service mgr at the
dealership and he didn't seem too concerned. He said to bring it in when it reach the
min mark and they would check it out.
Has anybody else had this problem? And since this is my first BMW, is this typical-
especially for the high horsepower engines?
I would appreciate any feedback.
Thanks.

Yes very typical of new BMW engines.

Have seen quite a few threads, EXACTLY like this. Usually engine consumes a quart or less in first interval, then zilch.

Follow the break in procedure, and get a 1,200 miles break in oil change (BMW still pays for this for M3s, never a bad idea but it will be on you on your GC) if you like.

Suspect you are fine.

Update-
First quart of oil lasted 1200 miles. Second quart lasted 1000 miles. The service advisor is not concerned. He pointed out that the manual
on this engine allows 1 quart per 750 miles.
