2017 X3 - BMW Longlife-01 FE only?

I was browsing the manual to find out what was the approved oil type to avoid any issues with the warranty in the future (CPO), but according to the manual the only oil types approved are either:

BMW Longlife-01 FE
BMW Longlife-14 FE+

It even says that regular BMW Longlife-01 (Non FE) can only be used for top offs ( up to 1 quarts / liter )

Soooo anyone know of any BMW Longlife-01 FE that is easily available? I was gonna get the Castrol 0W-40 but that is not FE.

While my cars are still under warranty, and given that oil changes are not frequent, I just pay the price difference and get oil from the dealer. That way I have a receipt for BMW oil from a dealer. I'd have to look for what the bottles say, but they give me the same oil for my 650 V8 as they do my X3 4 cylinder.
