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.
^ just happened to me over the long weekend. I got a e90 330xi w/175k kms.
Had to have the waterpump/tstat replaced. Also had the coolant system bled since i added distilled water just to get me home when this happened on the freeway. Worst part they also had to replace some module for the throttle ($320) b/c my car would keep overreving after bleeding the system.
