It is very likely a water pump issue. I just had to have mine replaced with less than 40k on the odometer. I've seen all over the net that these go pretty regularly.

I have CPO Warranty on my '09 535 and I just had the water pump replaced along with the oil filter housing gasket. My impressions were that that would cost me about $1200-1500 in repairs.
