Massive oil consumption 1 quart of oil every 350 miles for M6 2013

I own a M6 2013 Convertible (V8 twin turbo), i bought it with 13k miles on it still under warranty and service, back in 2015. Ever since i got it i had to add 1 quart of oil every 350 miles, and i was told by the bmw service team that it was O.K. it is within their normal as it keeps driving the oil gets thinner and burn faster. so i first believed that bs but now that i drive my car daily its a pain to go for a top off almost weekly. Today was the third time i brought in my car for service complaining on excessive oil consumption, they checked for everything no leaking no anything abnormal. They said is OK to add 2 quarts of oil every 750 miles(it seems like they dont want to see me there that often). Now, I dont drive it aggressively or even on sport mode, it has now 43k miles in it. In 2017 i bought the extended warranty for an extra 2 more years. The warranty is over in June. I dont know what to do. any advises will be highly appreciated.

Up to 2 quarts every 1,000 miles is per BMW spec. It even says so in the manual.

There's nowhere in the owners manual that says 2 quarts every 1,000 miles

it's actually a little bit higher than that; 2.5qts / 1000 miles:

curious what oil you're running? 10-60? What's the ambient temps you typically run in? 2.5 quarts every 1k is "acceptable"...a PITA but acceptable. Any visual signs of leaks or smoke? Have a Blackstone test run also if you havent already.

Sorry, was rushing to type - meant SIB, not manual.
The reality is - this is a motorsport derived V10 engine, not a 4-banger Kia. No, they are not your typical "change oil and forget about it until next oil change" types. These engines are DESIGNED to consume oil, some more, some less - depending on how hard you push it. They are high performance, naturally aspirated, 500+ hp 10-cylinder monsters. They drink oil, guzzle gas, and eat babies for breakfast.
