Has anyone run a 0 weight oil in the 1M? The only possible downside would be increased blow-by.

I had to add about 1.5 quarts of oil cumulatively over the first 15k miles, basically between the run-in service and the next scheduled service. I recall topping off about 1/2 quart between 1200 and 6k miles when I did my own oil change. I then added 1qt between 6k miles and 15k miles (all within about the first half of those miles) when the next scheduled service was provided by the dealer. I have since had oil changes at 25k miles and 29k miles, both at the dealer. I am currently at 36k miles. I have not added a drop of oil between oil changes since well before the oil change at 15k.

I may try the 0w40 from BMW when I do my OC this month. I will post back if I start seeing consumption.
