OK.... you guys have me worried now. I just bought an X5 a few days ago. And yes, I see the white smoke pouring out of the driver's side exhaust. A month ago, I bought a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee and it was doing the same thing. When I took it back to the dealership, they kept it a week then said it was bad. Something about the oil pan in that year's model being turned around and allowing oil to seep into the pistons. So they took it back. Now, I'm obviously concerned it's the same problem. And as far as the idling thing goes.... that doesn't make a lot of sense to me either. Cars idle! In driveways, at stoplights, to check things.... I don't get the "Don't let it idle" thing.
