A compression test will show the leaking cylinders. All indicators appear to be the Head Gasket. Cooling overhaul every 5 years may of prevented it. Here one can find resellers of OE year used engines tested cleaned boxed and delivered for 1,500 you just swap your components on to it. If your lucky you may find another BMW same make and series and replace the engine. The real value in the car is the working parts.
