Water from the tailpipe is normal while the engine is warming up, but will eventually stop as the engine reached operating temperature.

As long as the coolant level is OK and it's not dropping, it may just be normal. If everything is operating normally then I wouldn't worry about it. Heck, we are going to need some water out here come summer, just bottle it up and send it our way!

Carefully monitor your temp gauge and note any additional water or antifreeze added. Write it on the radiator- next to the filler cap if you have to.
You don't even want to think about tearing down a BMW for inspection or repair.
If you have that Aluminum Engine, the whole lower block - not just the heads - you'll have a nightmare if one the bolts strip out while being REMOVED.
Good luck!
