    Hi, I'm the unfortunate owner of a 2006 E61 523i with a high oil consumption. The motor har been driving around 180k km. I got the car about a year ago and it has always had a very big oil consumption (1 liter per 1200km or so), which I understand from other threads is not that unusual with this...
  4. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    I'm currently going through about 1 quart of oil every 300-400 miles. I had the valve stem seals replaced about 2 years (12,000 miles) ago which fixed the same issue back then. Oil consumption has progressively increased over the past several months. I did the 10 minute idle/stomp test and saw...

    My 2013 550i is going to the dealer next next week for what I assume is going to be valve stem seal replacement under the recall from the class action suit related to the n63 engine. 60k miles. I consume oil and make an uncomfortable amount of smoke out of the exhaust. I had a hard time finding...

  8. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I recently purchased a 2001 BMW 540i with 171k and was aware of some problems but they have seemed to have been getting worse. Initially the car only smoked for a few seconds on start up, and you could see some minor smoking from the passenger side valve cover gasket. When i first checked the...
  9. General BMW Questions
    I first started having problems with my 2012 BMW X6 50i. I bought the vehicle used and certified and immediately noticed it was burning oil. I was putting on average 4 quarts of oil a month in the vehicle. My BMW service representative told me that this was perfectly normal in high performance...
  10. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    I recently purchased a 2014 750LI with 12K miles. A friend who owns a 2012 750LI informed me that he buys oil by the case because the twin turbos drink oil. is this a problem for all 750s? Is it limited to certain years? Currently under original maintenance and warranty, but want to know what...
