You can switch to a 5w40 LL04, it might reduce the consumption slightly, but don’t expect miracles.

My money is on burning it, via the valve stem seals.

What sort of miles are you doing vs top ups ?
1 Ltr every 400 miles or something, I might sell the car as now I hate it even more, a 118i isn't suitable for me, I need something that is Powerful, today I was at a car meet I reeved it and you know what I mean changed gears as I was going out, now there is a clutch burning smell
