I seriously question whether increased oil consumption is a result of not following break in procedures. I am guessing it is not. If it was, wouldnt we see BMW pulling data from the car's computer...

The bridgestone potenza 960AS RFT has a tread wear rating of 400. The Conti SportContact SSRs are 280. You should have noticed better dry grip with the Contis over the 960s.

Depreciation on this particular model is so bad IMO that I purchased the near identical car ('10 GT with $80k sticker) and only 4,000 miles in 2013 for just over $40k. 50% off and only 4k miles!

Pre-CCP my oil consumption had slowed down to about 1qt every 7500 miles. I assume that they overfilled the oil when I went in for CCP (per the TSB) by 1 qt. It appears that I was down at least 2qts...
