I have the same car. The dealership wanted to charge me $155 to go into the computer and give me the passkey.
One of the techs just told me how to find it myself:
Inside the trunk, on the left side behind the DVD player, there is a box that sits at a 45 degree angle. Right above that box, there is a box that is shaped like a VHS tape. Unscrew that box and on the other side you will see bluetooth PK: and your four digit number.
That saved me $155 dollars and now I can talk hands free through my car.

There is a lot wrong with "low oil" and low oil is not normal in a low mileage healthy engine.
The dealer is fobbing you off in the hope you will go away.
If the oil is being changed at least every 5000 miles or so there should be minimum oil depletion between changes with only very minor top up needed. Some oil consumption is normal but it should be minimal.
If the oil level is dropping to a very low level in about 4000 - 5000 miles of normal motoring you have a significant problem. The oil is either leaking out or the engine is burning excessive oil or a combination. If there is no leak through faulty seals or by other means such as oil escaping into the cooling passages of the engine, then there is excessive burning.
These engines are known for excessive oil consumption because the problem is a common one in the 06, 05, 04 and previous year builds back to about 98/99. The dealers know all about this problem - as does BMW - and they will try to fob you off until the car is out of warranty because the fix is expensive.
From what you say the problem has not been fixed on your car. Document the oil loss and insist on your warranty rights because your engine is using excessive oil and this is NOT normal in a properly functioning motor with as few miles as yours has. Make it clear to the dealer that you are well aware that excessive oil consumption is a common problem in many of the 325 petrol engines and you want it fixed under warranty.
Then sell the car as these vehicles will cost you quite a bit in repairs once out of warranty and once you clock up around 60000 miles or more. If you have an auto you can expect major problems at about 65000 miles (later if you are lucky) and replacement of the transmission will be necessary. Once you notice any significant problem with the auto transmission it is on it's way out.

It does not surprise me that you are burning a quart of oil if you are waiting for 15,000 miles to change your oil. I personally change my oil every 3-4,000 miles and think it is ridiculous that some auto manufacturers have maintenance lights that are set on 5,000 mile intervals. Simple fact of the matter is an oil breaks down with use, when viscosity goes down, its losing it's effectiveness to lubricate and keep things cool. I would be changing my oil at the absolute very minimum of once every 5,000 miles.
