Oh no! BMW's should never be allowed to overheat and if they do, you need to turn the car off right away. Seems you've been driving yours a lot longer than that. Making bad noises and awful smells doesn't sound good. You might have warped the heads requiring some major engine work, let alone a new coolant system upgrade. Have a BMW independent shop in your area look it over for you. Have it towed to the shop if you can.

the car didnt over heat..it just showed light on dash board and wouldnt bring any heat in the car...and i didnt drive it long ...as soon as I started the car drove about 2km then turned car off

it first showed the symbol engine overheat and then I stopped driving the car

Omg and why do you jump to such drastic measures....it might only be the thermostate...or maby the overlow tank..

You're right, no need to jump to major conclusions. Sounds like a themostat issue. Nonetheless, have car towed to independent BMW shopto have the situation properly evaluates.
