Single overheat issue opinions please

In a buddys e90 325i 113 degree this weekend on highway going 70 mph. Ac full blast radio on and charging cell phone on dual high output cig lighter adapter. 20 min into the drive get the yellow then red warning warning comes on. Pulled to side of road see coolant overflow from expansion tank. Waited 10 min slowly opened up exp tank cap added bottled water to top off wasnt very low on fluid maybe 12oz...

We got back in and no warning lights dove home with no ac on or any other accessories on....50 additional miles and still rumnimg ok now..current mileage 130k unk when last water pimp thermostat changed

I know it sound like it was the water pump but anything else such as
1. too much of a current draw with everything on ac radio carging phone taking away power from the water pump..suspect since everything was on

2. Air in the system that wasnt bled properly...suspect since it didnt have the blue color coolant but grreen

He siad he'd probably change the pump and thermostat but beside that anything anyone can thinlnof that caused this?
