1. 6 months; 4900 miles oil low (light came on and checked confirming low level). Is this common to have to add oil around this time?

2. What type of oil should I add. Is any store brand acceptible (Mobil-1.. have seen others comment on ratings not up to BMW recommended specs) and if so what specific type and specs, or do I need to order BMW brand and wait several days until here.

thanks

Seems pretty normal. I added an entire quart (not at one time) over the first 7k miles. I just bought the BMW branded oil, since it's just over $3/quart with the CCA discount. I just bought a case and carry 1 quart in the trunk (just in case I need to top it off).
