Saw many threads about low engine oil warning at around 1500-3000 miles. I can't say it's normal, my M340i 5000km still at max mark...

May I ask did you properly break in the car?
And did you down shifts a lot to make exhaust burbles? Thanks.

No and yes
I saw people said downshifting to let some fuel burn inside the turbo, causing the turbo burns oil faster??? I'm not sure this is correct 🥵🥵
My advise is take the car to dealerships, let them top up the oil and tell you what's going on about your car.

Just over 2000 miles and my M340i already needs a quart of oil https://g20.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh....php?t=1645079
