Answer 1
the radiator, coolant reservoir, hoses, thermostat housing are all made of plastic. someone will need to pressure test the system to find the leak. do not put this off; these engines overheat very easily and can be damaged beyond repair. find a good independant BMW shop that other people recommend. -
