Mein Auto: 2014 535i
535i oil level - dropped 1 "tick"

I know there have been a few oil usage threads, but I didn't find any from the last month or so (at least I tried to search!). Anyway, my 535i just hit 2600 miles and while checking today, I see my oil level dropped 1 "tick" from max. If oil consumption remains constant, it will have used 1 quart in about 10K miles (I think 1 tick is 1/4 quart), which seems low and/or normal. I've seen more threads about 550i oil consumption. Has anyone else with a 535i noticed this slight drop at the 2500-2600 mile range? BTW, I drive a mix of heavy traffic and highway.
