Did you recently add Freon in your AC system? You might have too much Freon in the system, which caused the AC compressor to recycle more frequent than normal. Or you might not have enough Freon in the system. These BMW's are very AC system are very finicky. Get an AC gauge and check the level (high side & Low side) pressure.

I just bought a bmw 318 ti compact , r reg and evey time the car is standing still with the engine runing the temp gadge hits the red .but when i drive it cools down realy quickly , what do u think it...

You might very well have a blocked radiator.Try this.With the car running and standing still,turn on the heater and the interior fan at full.If it takes longer to get hot its the radiator.The heater unit takes a lot of hot air from the cooling system and is a good indictator.this is just a start.There is a few things it might be,but this might narrow it down.Hope this helps

Heating problem

Could be a few things. First of all check the coolant level ( when the engine is cold ) If this is OK it's possible that the heater matrix is partially blocked & is only transferring the heat when there is a high flow of coolant or the plastic impeller on the inside of the water pump is loose and isn't circulating the coolant around the engine properly. Hope this helps & good luck !

Heater works part time

Can be low coolant level or water pump problem.
Check the coolant level.
Also alternator (serpentine belt) can be a problem too.
Good Luck
