If it overheated really badly, you can throw away the engine and get a used one. Probably head is very warped and/or cracked. If it were a 528e I would say the timing belt broke and there are some bent valves and piston damage but this is an M30 engine that uses the timing chain and to be honest with you I don't know if they do break.

Good Luck!!
