Oil and other services

So I presume you didn't ask a BMW dealer to permit you to view the service history on the car BEFORE you bought it?? If you did you would have a better idea of what services were performed and at...

ABSOLUTELY - It adds 47.3 hp and a 24.2% increase in fuel economy. It also permits you to burn a 50-50 gasoline water mix to reduce your driving costs and keep your engine cooler. :angel: :rofl: :p

Oil consumption

If it's a quart every 800-1000 miles that seems excessive to me. Of course if your wife is driving hard during her 8 mile commute a cold engine beat to death is more likely to consume oil.
