What's wrong? Your car has a coolant leak.

Not sure how you think we can help define it better when you're the one who has the car in front of you and the only way to really know where it's leaking from is to do a physical visual inspection of the car. This is mainly a US based forum and the engines we got here are notorious for having cooling system parts with short life expectancy. Don't have enough data on the 318i to know if the parts are as crappy as on the 6 cylinders.
