I would recommend you still get a PPI even if the car is under warranty. If anything does come up in the PPI, as minor as it may be, you can use it as a negotiating tool. GL w/ search and purchase.

I wasn't referring to the X5. I have 2012 with the 4.4L V8. Generally speaking, I still check the dipstick on my other vehicles.
