Although these cars are known to consume some oil - this sounds excessive. The only time I seem to consume oil is at high sustained RPMs like on multi-hour trips. Even then, its only been 1.5L over 23,000 miles. However, I did break the engine in very carefully. Your car is brand new and assuming you too broke the engine in as BMW suggests - then I would suggest documenting your oil consumption is case you want or need to push it up the BMW channels later.
