I have a friend who has a 328i, and he runs it pretty hard right after startup, and it doesnt get that cold here. He bought the car new and it burns oil, a quart every 3-4K. My 335 doesnt burn any oil at all. I have changed oil at 5k(1st), then at 7K intervals, and it burns no more than 1/4-1/3(7K) of a quart. this could be due to differences in break-in, but running the car hard at startup could also make the car burn more oil by increasing wear.
