I have a BMW 528i. It is a 2010 and I have changed the oil

Customer Question

I have a BMW 528i. It is a 2010 and I have changed the oil every 5000 miles at a dealership. Since 80k or 90k the car needs a 1 qt of oil every 2500-3000mi. Circle BMW says there are no leaks, but somehow I still don't believe my car is burning oil. Could the dealership be in error? Is there a definitive test that could be run to rule out burning oil. I simply don't believe cylinder rings are worn.
