Go through the usual suspects... thermostat, water pump, radiator, fan, etc... The link Tom posted is will actually apply to most BMWs! Great information there!

Once I start it up and let it run for a while it just start running hot and give a burnt smell.

Thermostat is probably shot. Is the fan coming on?

I had it to the shop they took the thermostat out . But it still run hot very fast
