Until the bubbles stop. Even the tiny ones. Then do it again/more.

The temp gauges on BMWs are buffered. It will indicate straight up if it's anywhere in the neighborhood of normal temperature. If it's indicating a little high, it may just be a gauge glitch, or it might be actually running a little hot.
