Coolant Low !!!

Dears, I've got a coolant level low one month ago , filled it with 4 litres of coolant !! however i've got the warning again today ! , it seems there's a leak somewhere but i can't see any visual leaks !! is there some common trouble with E90 in this issue ? from where can this coolant leaks unseen?? any recommendations ? my car is E90 320i 2008

Garage List
I had the low level warning as well. Sounds like your water pump is beginning to crap out. Make sure the reservoir is filled and get it to a nearby BMW or indy garage immediately or if you are able and have the tools etc, you could do the work yourself. Do not continue to drive the car especially long distance in the condition it is in. To check where the leak is coming from, remove the plastic splash guard from under the engine. Most likely you'll see dripping coming from the pump/thermostat area. If it is your pump, have your thermostat changed as well while you're at it.

Water pump is leaking OR radiator has a leak. It may be burning off before you can see it dripping.

I would take it in to get the entire coolant system inspected as soon as possible.

Salaam. Considering your location I would think radiator but water pump would be my first guess. How many KM's does the car have?

If there is no puddle, then it's burning it (head gasket?). Coolant is a sealed deal. It doesn't go anywhere normally (unless it overheats ands pukes it out the overflow).
