X6 E71 / E72 (2008 - 2014)
The BMW X6 luxury crossover went on sale in April 2008 as a 2009 model year. BMW referes to the X6 as a Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) as it combines the attributes of an SUV (high ground clearance, xDrive and all-weather ability) with the stance, styling and roof line shape of a coupe. The E71 X6 was built off the E70 X5 (2007 - 2013) platform at BMW's Spartanburg, SC plant. Total worldwide sales were just over 235,000, sold mostly to the BRIC countries. US total sales was 34,082 vehicles.

I have a 2011 X6. I have the same problem. Tire wear on the front tires only.
My X6 has 9,000 miles. I have done the alingment twice at Crevier BMW irvine.
I love my X6. But if BMW can't find answer to the front tire wear. I'ma have to sell it.
