Having just hit 2000 miles on my Coupe CC, I noticed that I am about 1 quart (or liter) down on oil. What is everyone's experice regarding their oil consumption?

I am at almost 1000 miles and checked my oil this morning after reading your post and it is down a little since new. I would not worry about using 1 quart on a cars first couple thousand miles. Most high performance engines are going to go Thru some oil between changes. I remember my 96 Mustang Cobra needed at least a quart every 1,000 miles. When I picked up my Spyder I bought two quarts of oil figuring I would need to add some between my yearly changes

What oil did you use to top off? The owner's manual recommends semi- or full-synthetic 5W/40, and says that oil consumption will be 0.5 liter/1000 km.

I checked the oil with the engine running as directed.

The oil I got from the dealer is AGIP Sint 2000 W10-40, which is a synthetic oil. Could not find AGIP anywhere except at the dealer.
