F80 M3 High Oil Consumption
For those of you that have F8X M's, how often are you topping up with Oil.

A week after I got the car I got a low oil warning and had a liter put in. +-5000Km later and the warning has come back on. This is the first car that I've ever had to top up with oil between services...dunno anymore

RE: F80 M3 High Oil Consumption
Hi bud,

With amm my brand new purchases, I had to fill oil twice before first service, at 5000km first top up and and around 9500km-ish.

I would imagine yours being a performance car and you probably enjoying it for what it is built for...it would take a bit more however, raise this with the dealership ASAP and ensure diagnostics are run just in case and these are logged to should anything be wrong, you will have a case of the car's issue from early.

Hoping it is the norm bud.

5000km on a high performance boosted car is probably better than most are getting, driving style dependent and depending on how the car was broken in. BMW probably won't do anything about that as it's completely within normal range. (1L every 1000/1500km is where it gets attention) unless the car is smoking badly but make sure they note it in case it becomes an issue later. If you can show it using significantly more oil over time you have a better chance of getting something done.

Someone had their PCV valve and pipes done for this on F82 (I've also had this done on my M5). I was getting roughly what you and and it improved by 2000km afterwards. I don't remember who it was but maybe they will post here. Excessive liquid oil in the breather pipes or intakes is what they can look for to motivate changing the valve and pipes... what counts as excessive i am really not sure... Worth noting it was at a fairly high mileage (mine too). Service intervals are also so long that to top up in between is inevitable.

RE: F80 M3 High Oil Consumption
Thanks guys. I’ll speak to them about it. Let’s see if they take a look at it. It currently has 48 500km so it’s not that high mileage.

I do drive it Like it was intended for, but no different from my other cars. (Audi S4 and CLA 45 AMG)
