Engine overheating, my car is a lemon

Hey guys, I didn't think I'll be back so soon.

My car is overheating. I'm so mad! Right now I'm stuck in DC, I had to pull over and let it cool down. I still have 30 min drive to get home.

I don't know what's the issue or what could be wrong. Should I just have it towed? Or wil it cool down quickly?

Any advice to help is greatly appreciated. I just bought the car on Jul 2.

You didn't say you did, so I have to ask, did you check your coolant level? How do you know it's overheated? Is there steam blowing off everywhere, or is you oil temp gauge showing high temp? Either way, have it towed. You can ruin a whole mess of things driving an overheated engine.

A follow-up.

The cooling fan in my car was not working causing it to overheat in stop and go traffic. Since i had a warranty, it was paid for with no problems at the BMW dealership.

I've been driving him ever since and the only other problem I had was the key fob battery died. I replaced that with no problems and my comfort access is working again!!
