This forum is for newer X6 though.

But in any rate, you need to see which one is leaking, if the composite part is not crack then you can try putting another worm-drive clamp on it. I did and it stop the leaking.
Also never top of coolant at max or more, just in between min-max, this alleviate the excess pressure but the car still have adequate coolant to be effective
