Oil consumption (N20 328i).

My 328i - zero! No oil used whatsoever! Looks like the 335i is open to a mighty swig of oil but 3500mls in and nothing has been used.

How about yours?

Looks OK.
7 K Miles done, and still at nearly 100 %. Much depends on brake-in driving style. It will be determining for life time mileage. (motor health)
