What's up with my E71 X6M

Tomorrow....I go for an oil change...its a 2013, in service Nov 12.

It has 60,000 miles....never tracked.

Oil changes yearly or at 10,000 km intervals...

The other day I checked the level and for the first time ever, it showed a bit of consumption...today...back to max.

Bottom line...this thing has never burnt oil...anyone else had a similar experience? Given that the posted/expected rate is about a quart per 5000km if I recall correctly. I'd like to complain to someone

Another reason we should have freaking dipsticks. I don't trust computers. Especially BMW electronics.

Oil change done...I supplied parts...labour was 29 bucks...Still reading max...about 7.8 liters added...I too wish I had a dipstick.

Dealer cost for X6M oil changes in Canada $250-259....

Brake fluid flush/fill cost 61 dollars, parts and labour. I think I am done with 2 year intervals on Brake fluid...

Dealer cost for Brake fluid change...$150 CAD.

The S63 has to be the easiest vehicle to do an oil change on.....but I'm getting lazier..
