AIGHT I just toooked the car for a test drive and noticed a burned smell, opened up the hood and cooling fluid was overflowing by the overflow all over the place only took the car out for 20 min max. hooses from the radiator to the tank of coolant was about 70Celcius and was going up. what can i do , car is not bought yet , the guy said he was gonna fix it but im sending the car for an inspection monday to a bmw specialized mechanic. will post updates.
Sounds like you have there's to much pressure in the cooling system, could be headgasket or even a crack in the head if I were you..........stay clear unless your getting it really cheap and you are prepared to do the work, I would search for another.

I stepped in a plate of Pasta the other day - now I have to worry about my Carbonara footprint!
im' looking for another but i dought i can find one in a short amount of time so any idea how expensive that can get cause the dealer said he'd fix that but i'd rather give him 500$ and take the car and fix it worth it?
