Checked the oil today and it was low, went and bought 3 qt's of Mobil 1 0w30 and put it in, now the oil is at the correct level.

This is probably a stupid question but.... You think it will be ok until sometime next week when I can get the oil service done?? :D

PS - Check your oil level, you never know!!

I certainly will.

I think it might be because the oil service lights are on and I know M3's are known to burn a little oil. I guess the land rover dealership lied their ass off when they told me the oil service had been done but they just didn't reset the light. Good thing I had a hunch and made sure I figured in all that stuff when I was negotiating the price. :D

i am very lucky. the preowner of my car took care of it very very well when it was brand new. This car does not burn oil AT ALL ^_^

I feel very lucky.

I have been reading up on this a lot tonight and it seems that it's totally normal for the car to burn oil. It also varies in every car, some people burn no oil while others burn 1qt every 1000-1500 miles.

BMW says anything up to 2.5qt's every 1000 miles is ok, that's alot of oil burning.

Check your oil!
