Hi Frankie !
I own 1999 model , 7500 miles oil changes and never have added even a drop of oil betwen . Met in the past at the dealership a few owners of E 90 cars , and they had complained about the problem you have , they simply have to add oil every 1000-2000 miles with no reason(no leak)- new cars !
They were told by BMW service dept. it is normal on E90 models-Is it ?!
Kill me , I got no idea, but this is weird...
I carry an extra quart with me, it's good practice to check your car over and add fluids as needed before extensive drives....manually check your oil level to determine if you need oil or if the sensor has gone to crap as suggested above
