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 got mine (then returned) from idjmtoy. It worked great without throwing code.. in fact, it worked too great that blinded out the rear view cam from the reflection off the bumper hence my return.
I would not recommend getting one for light colored car (mine is white). Maybe dark colored car has better luck.
