550i Oil Replenshment

I'm having to add a quart of oil every 2,700 miles to my 550i. Is that normal or is it because the rings never sealed?

My 550i VIN ends with 270947 and I took delivery on 6/23/2010. This car may have been used on the BMW tour in early 2010.

Yes, I have the DHP and the steering noise/vibrations. Sounds like the tire rubbing against something at very low speed turning to the left/right. Felt vibrations in steering wheel on one occasion.

Anyone Had the Recall Done on the Fuel Level Sensor?

Was wondering if your gas guage reading is ok after installation. My guage won't peg all the way to full even with a full tank of gas.

All I can say is that I'm dumbfounded that some people say their ventilated seats work fine but on my car it is not even noticeable. The SA said he could feel air blowing but it is ever so faint.

Does your 550 have the Dynamic Handling Pkg? If, not then the drifting to the right may be peculiar to those F10's that have it.
