How did he manage to drive the car with no coolant in it? i.e. was there a leak and it ALL leaked out and THEN he decided to drive it, ignoring the warning lights on the dash?

No offense but your kid sounds like he's in line for a beat down.

You don't state your mileage but even if the head is blown the car is worth more than $500. Hell you could sell the seats for $200!

and +1 to getting is checked by a solid independent BMW mechanic.
