Common Oil leak on a '01 BMW is usually from the valve cover gasket or the Oil filter housing gasket, that is around the engine block near the alternator. Car overheating is not good, you must have a leak and air in the system. Change out the components if they are original......http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=914109
