1 quart every 3000 miles isn’t horrible but isn’t great either. I don’t know anything about the oil you are using. Is it BMW LL03 compatible? Though the viscosity you stated matches what is on the oil cap, viscosity can be quite different between brands. Example Mobil 1 5W-30 is too thin so 0W-40 Should be used for M1. Doe you have Castrol, Mobil, or Rotella products in your area?

The best oil is Motul and Ravenol from what i know, i dont have trust in Castrol to be honest, but i dont understand how the car eat oil, is not losing and does not have smoke.
