Add 1qt of oil = sell car?

I nearly went Hulk Smash today when the stupid oil light lit up today. Had to add 1qt of oil. I can't possibly be doing this every 4,000km at $18/qt! Time to set this car on fire in front of the dealership .

Doesn't seem all that bad really. That's like a ninth of the oil capacity lost over 2,500 miles. But when you realize that's 6 top offs between each 15,000 mile oil change, it's kinda aggressive.

Totally normal for a M engine. A have a buddy who has an E39 M5 and has to put a quart in every other month. Doesn't bitch about it and would never sell his M5.

Hey, did you hear about all the shit going on in the Middle East?
