At what mileage and what mods? Bearing failures have not been common on the M5/6 even when modded. (that said people might not be talking about it)

X6M doesn't have quite the same motor, but either way a sample of one doesn't quite point to a widespread problem.

You idle your cars for 5 minutes......isn't is better to drive and keep the revs low until warmed up?

Yes it is better to drive around, so other components heat up as well, not just the engine

Exactly what I do

Peter explicitly told me, no over 4000 RPM until the car is warm.

I stick to under 4000 RPM and max throttle of 50% until the car is at 1/4 on the temp gauge (where 1/2 is warm), then allow up to 5000 and about 60% throttle, then when at 1/2 I rev till about 6500RPM maximum. in over a year I think I've seen over 7000 RPM on a handful of occasions.

Previously owned cars:
2003 Alfa Romeo 147 T-Spark (Navy blue and beige interior)
2006 Alfa Romeo 147 JTD 16v (Silver and beige interior)
Current:
2007 BMW Z4M Coupe (Silbergrau and Black Leather)

I don't drive an M car, but I don't go above 2000rpm (maybe slightly higher) until I hit half way on the gauge.

Maybe, to be honest, in 3rd at 7000 it's scary enough!!!! Haha, I know the limits of my talent :P

Btw it’s actually better to drive off gently than to leave the car to idle when cold, as the oil warms up quicker.
