Not good. Don't drive the car until the leak is fixed. Overheating a BMW will mean an engine replacement. Open the hood or get under to car to determine the source of the leak. I'd replace all the cooling components while your under there. Expansion tank, water pump, thermostat, hoses, coolant, etc.
