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

That seems like a bit much IMO. No leaks I take it?

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