2002 BMW 525i Burning Oil
I was wondering if maybe someone here can shed some light on this. My car has 80,000KM on it and i generally baby it. I do take it to red line on occasion but not often. The oil light comes on every 1,200km or so based on the above driving conditions, and .5L of oil must be added. This doesn't make sense to me although BMW said its within standard. I really don't want to have to invest 6,000 to tear down the motor and discover that there is no problem, and my warranty will not cover it. If some one can perhaps confirm that the 2.5L I6 burns more oil than any other motor except a rotary then i will believe its ok. Otherwise there must be something seriously wrong here.
