I'm not sure what oil is required, but am curious to know as well.
I think I would first search for diff oil in the E90 xdrive models if I couldn't find
anything specific for the X1.
I would also check your axel breather to make sure it's not stuck closed.

Funny thing though, there is label that says Lifetime Oil - No oil change, but the oil is listed as a part for this configuration!

I changed mine on my X1 s28i at 5k miles to see if any wear particles like on my Mazda RX8.

I had to make a stinger out of gallon suction plunger to get out, and it had no obvious metal.

I filled a little over a quart with Mobil 1 75w90 synthetic.

I'm pretty sure it's the right specs.
