Erroneous!!!!!

If this were true, then over the course of BMWs recommended 15k oil change intervals you would "normally" burn 20 quarts of oil!!!! 1qt/7500 miles might be a bit more reasonable though. 1 qt every 1500 km (or just under 1000 mi) is wayyyy to excessive. Track it down to the core of the problem and don't take no for an answer until you're gut feeling tells you its fixed.
