Oil usage X-5
 
Why does the 2012 X-5 5.0 use so much oil? Every 3-4,000 miles....add a quart.

what does the dealer have to say about this? how many miles? if it is fairly new i would be concerned that something hasn't "seated" itself correctly.

take it out and flog it for a few hundred miles. might break it in, might just break it..............

Mine used a quart every 2500 miles for the first 15,000 miles, after that it settled out and not have needed to add any for the last 6,000 miles.

My 535i did this the first year. I had to top off the oil every few months. It is normal.

Mine doesn't have 2000 miles on it and is about to hit the minimum oil level notification. Taking it in on Tuesday

BMW states 1qt of oil every 700 to 1k miles is normal. The new TT motors are most likely burning oil due to the turbos. Short drives have a tendency to burn oil
