Very perceptive!

BTW, here's another thread opened today where, as usual, overheating is the first major symptom - yet - folks concentrate on bleeding - in the hopes that the air in the system is what's causing it to overheat.
> E39 (1997 - 2003) > 2001 525i Overheating

So that others have the bleeding information, I added these PDFs from the bestlinks to that thread:

Please read the suggested threads, where the best always add value to those threads, either by pictures or by descriptions, so the next person with the same problem stands on your shoulders.
