Question oil useage

Just wanted to know if this was normal

I have a 2001 e39 m5 with nearly 106000 on it when I got it she had 103000 and she is loooking for a oil top up every 1000 miles or so. I know that she needs two new maf but still trying to get two at the right price any ideas

Are you sure your rocker cover gaskets are not leaking especially at the rear?
