Did you replace the thermostat too? The thermostat is notoriously bad on the 80s 3 series. Also, be absolutely sure you added enough coolant. You need to fill the radiator, then wait until the thermostat opens, and add more. If didn't do this, wait until the engine is completely cool before adding the second batch. If you add coolant while the engine is overheated (or completely warmed up) you could crack the block when the cold coolant hits the over heated engine).

SOURCE: i need instructions to install a clutch fan on 1987 bmw

The fan/clutch assy has left hand thread. Loosen by turning clockwise.

Remove radiator top shroud & air cleaner assy. to gain access.
Remove engine cooling fan by holding the belt drive pulley with a suitable flat bar tool (that fits over the top of the drive pulley attachment bolts), then using a suitable flat spanner to unscrew the fan clutch assy (clockwise). When re-fitting, tighten clutch nut to 30 ftlb.
You may need to use a bit of ingenuity in making the flat bar holding tool, unless you are able to procure the BMW tool #11.5.030.
Good luck

SOURCE: 1987 bmw 325 idles rough

I had a similar problem on a 318IS.
The rough idling was accompanied by an occasional whistling noise from the general engine area (caused by air leaks through the front and rear crankshaft oil seals).

The problem was caused by a faulty crankcase ventilation valve (Costs about $100).
The vent valve is easy to replace - (2 screws) - check the vacuum hose that connects this valve back to the tappet cover air vent nipple - it goes soggy and disintegrates.- replace with suitable oil resistant vacuum hose.
While on the job, clean the throttle body / butterfly valve internally with a soft toothbrush dipped in petrol. This cleans off sooty deposits - makes engine idle rpm more consistant.

SOURCE: removing steering wheel 1987 bmw 325

first you need to remove the horn button use a flat screwdriver to pop it out then get the right size socket and remove the large nut you see after the horn button is removed be careful this nut will be pretty tight easier to keep the sterring wheel locked when breaking this nut loose .after you get the nut removed insert the key into the ignition and turn the key to unlock the steering wheel you will not be able to pull the steering wheel off if it is locked now you have to be careful not to hit yourself as the wheel will suddenly just come loose sometimes it will take some muscle other time will come right out but you will have to try to rock it with both hands gripping it on 2 sides rocking it back and forth and should come out

You may have air in the cooling system, you need too bleed it using the bleed point on the top right of the radiator as you stand in front of the car

Overheating


yes, have a machanic check out your fan switch and see if this is the issue... if not... installing a new/bigger radiator and air intake will help keep the motor cool. If this is mostly happening after driving short distances, try sitting in your car with the motor running for about 5 minutes after you park. This should let the motor cool down properly and cool your troubles as well :)
