Some 550 users experience a quart loss in a few thousand miles. Wonder whether they followed the breakin recommendation?
I kept mine at 100 or less for the most part while in Germany, but did slowly take it up to 125 a few times. I have 8200 miles w/ 2 oil changes at 1700 and 7500. I have not used any oil.
