Either way you have to buy a new pump and t stat and if you run to failure you might end up with a tow bill also. Some tow trucks have been known to damage your car body and front bumper when it is towed also. So for the price of labor minus a tow bill, you can drive your E90 without worrying about overheating.

It took 1 hour to load the car onto the tow truck and 30 mins to unload it delicately. Huge PITA and a horribly complicated procedure (lowered car with M3 rep bumper and a front tow hook plate which has to be removed etc.)

Get it done at 80K Km.. unless you want to experience what I had to go through.
