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.

Getting the same error and the lights appear to be fine from the outside as well as the housing inside (no burn spots). I may change the bulb to see if it works, but will this pass a state inspection (NY) if a message like this remains?

The bulb-holder develops oxidation with the bulb, so I'd say take the bulb in-out usually works fine.
