BMW has taken the stance that if their people cannot duplicate the customers concern, it cannot be happening. I agree with you that the oil consumption seems quite excessive, however it is within the realm of what BMW considers acceptable, and as to what you can do about it, I would say that having documentation for all the trips to the dealer and all the oil you put in the engine would be the first step. You may also wish to consider voting with your checkbook, if BMW is not going to offer a decent explanation for a 2009 model year car doing what you claim it is doing without a reasonable effort to adjust or telling you it is normal, then you may wish to consider another marque. As to fixing it, you should consider the car is under warranty and anything you might try to do could void the manufacturers warranty. I dont make the news, I just report it.
