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.

mine is 5.0 and its smoking almost all the time, I am adding 1 quarts of oil every two weeks, very oil hungry, in cold weather smoking was very serious, especially first few minutes.

White smoke most likely comming from excessive fuel. Blue smoke is oil. If you are adding oil every two weeks, you have a serious problem, cars don't "use" oil unless something is worn out or you have a leak somewhere.
