In any case you are going to have to rip down the front of the engine and see what you have.
I just wasn't smart about checking the oil. I checked the oil level when I bought it and it was at the half way mark on the dipstick and I did not check it over the past 2 months. I must be used to the warning on my e90 that tells me to add 1 quart. The low oil warning light never went on, on the x5 either.
