Tough luck for overheating

Hi all. Just sharing my "sorrow"

After ending my project (headgasket and other) I drove the white bmw to the annual inspection.

The car as to idle and I left the seat so the man can do his job. While waiting outside, I noticed some water dropping. The hood was open, and immediately I notice a somewhat loose water hose.

I checked the water temp gauge (reading norma) so I went to properly tight the hose. Back to the seat, only then I noticed the message on the LCD "WATER OVERHEAT" (with the needle reading normal values). Bad temp gauge.

Well, let's wait for the end result of this mishap.
