X6 oil consumption?

Looks like my '08 X6 50i is pretty thirsty with regards to oil consumption. Need to add a quarter after every 1,500 miles. Any other figures from you?

My 2010 40d uses none between services. My old E53 used to use about the same as your 50i until it had about 30k on the odo.

Same here BTW which oil do you use? I am thinking that thicker oil might solve the consumption a bit. Maybe not?

I found an interesting notation while reading the BMW N63 Engine - Technical Training Workbook (Page 20)

Note: If the exhaust system produces blue smoke, it is necessary to check whether the engine is also drawing oil into the combustion chamber through the crankcase breather, which suggest that there is a fault in the area of the crankcase breather. A clear sign of a problem is an oiled up clean-air pipe.
