WarNox is an unknown quantity at this point
thermostat? he changed a lot of things without knowing what the problem is. i'd hate to know how much he charged you.

A bad temp sensor?! Or gauge. May not even be overheating, just reading that it is. Have him us an infrared thermometer on the top radiator hose to verify engine temp once the gauge reads overheating conditions.

1997 E36 M3 - running stocker style right now...

i assume by cylinder gasket you mean headgasket? if you changed this than you shouldnt be loosing pressure into the engine, and if this was the case you more than likely have oil in the coolant or vice versa.

chances are you have 3 things wrong.
a leak somewhere (probably the rad)
a bad temp sensor , when the ground out they will show an overheat.
or lastly you have air still in your system.
