Smoking under load

I have just purchased an x5 3.0 d sport 2005. My dad was following me and noticed that when the car was going up a steep hill it was pumping out a bit of smoke. The rest of the time it is fine even when you kick it down.

What could be the issue or what can I do to fix?

You don't do anything to fix it, because nothing is broken or wrong. It's a diesel, and under load it will deliver some soot. Kickdown only delivers a bit of a puff if anything. Will look worse at night when he headlights of the following vehicle highlights it.
