I had Rocco do my VANOS seals with the Beisan kit as well and I change my oil every 5-7500kms with BMW 5W-30 Synthetic. I don't have any leaks that can be the cause of this much oil loss. Any thoughts?
No leak at oil filter housing?
Valve stem seals are common, but too much of a pain to replace.
You could use a heavier oil like Shell Rotella T 5w40 synthetic. Works for me and got rid of lifter ticking too.
