Coolant Exploded? Merry Christmas to me!

As I'm coming home from Christmas lunch with my girlfriend.. doing a good speed down the freeway I get a sudden yellow engine temp light followed by a red engine temp light seconds later. I turn the heat up to max and nurse the car home as the car blew ice cold air from the heater (after turning the heater on max the lights went away and the car seemed fine).

Upon returning home and opening up the hood I saw explosively spilled coolant everywhere - so what had happened is that I lost all coolant in some sort of huge blow-out. I can't seem to find any cracks or leaks but I don't think this has anything to do with the water-pump/t-stat issue.

My car: Pre-Lci 325i (3 Litre N52 motor).. only engine mods: Stage 2 AA Tune, scoops.

Thank you and Merry Christmas!
