THIS IS THE FIRST I'VE HEARD OF THIS, DO THEY USE SALT WHERE YOU ARE? I WOULD SUGGEST YOU JOIN A MINI COOPER FORUM ON THE INTERNET AND ASK THE QUESTION, 1000'S OF OWNERS BELONG AND THEY WILL DENY OR CONFIRM THE PROBLEM. I BELONG TO A CORVETTE FORUM, IT IS GREAT AS A SOURCE FOR PROBLEM SOLVING.

My bmw 316i is burning oil needs top up after few weeks..jus had service and has a burning oil smell. there is no smoke from exhaust but i notice a black substance in exhaust


The first thing to do is clean the crankcase ventilation system. That may not turn out to be your problem, but you don't want to pursue other diagnostics until you are sure that the crankcase ventilation system is clear.
I am not familiar with the 316 so I cannot tell you how much work it is to get the plumbing off to clean it. I recently did my '04 325 and it was a real PITA. I have done clutch jobs that were easier than that.
