In many ways the spiritual successor to the E30 M3. Powered by a M derivitive of the N54 the inline six makes 340hp and giving the 1M a 0-60 time of 4.5 seconds.

High Oil Consumption

I have around 5000 miles on the car.
Yesterday yellow Low Oil sign lit up.
I run the check and computer tells me to add 1qt of oil.

I have break-in service done @ 1300 miles, so it looks car burned 1qt pretty quick.

Does anybody have same issue?

I had 2002 330Ci that burned a lot of oil - started with 1qt per 6K when new, then 1qt in less than 1000 miles after 9 years.
Nobody was able to figure out why that time.

All the M cars do that during their break in period. My dads E93 M would eat oil pretty bad during the first 5000 miles.

Excessive oil consumption = aggressive engine abuse when car was brand new.

Use liqui moly 5w40 it will slow consumption.
