Re overheating issue

Hi Folks

My thoughts is that the car is on the cusp of having overhead gasket issues, however it does not explain when the fault is not there it runs like a dream, to be honest when the temp needle moves from the middle to the first white it still runs like a dream but I panic.I would have though that overhead gasket blowen 3 and 4 chambers would cause performance issues.

Has anybody used Blue Devil in their beemer? apparently all my bubbling and hissing from the expansin tank is a symptom and this stuff has good reviews, I would rather take that route than a doner engine etc etc

Thanks for your support
