The car would start and run but I only drove from the driveway (where the tow truck driver set it down) into the garage, 30-40 feet max.

Btw, my car is an '06 330i with 130,000 miles.
This is exactly what happened to me 2 exits away from my job today. I plan on ordering a water pump & thermostat when I get home in the morning. Should I maybe have a shop look at it before I just assume its the water pump?

I have a 2006 330I with about 83,000 miles btw.
