2000 miles and 2 quarts of oil?

Was driving along the other day and the warning light came on indicating that I needed oil. Added 1 quart; light stayed on. Added a 2nd quart and the light's now off. Is this normal?? (I don't see any indication of oil leaks etc).

Not a big surprise if it were an M5 driven briskly.

I'm a "spirited" driver - but haven't been driving it too briskly. Guess I'll give the dealer a call...

You can look at the graphic display in iDrive to see the exact level...

How long did the light stay on after adding the first quart? That happend to me, but after an hour or two and a coupe of restarts, the light went off and the screen displayed maximum level.

Hmmm. Maybe I should have waited before adding the 2nd quart. It was about an hour after adding the 1st quart that I added the 2nd quart, couple of starts/stops in between.
