SOURCE: replaced water pump in 2001 bmw z3 and now car won't start

I would suspect that you pulled a wire off when you were installing the water pump. Check to see if you have spark

SOURCE: How do you replace the hood badge? 98 BMW Z3

Allow some warm water mixed with dish soap to penetrate around the edges of the old ornament. Gently slide a pry tool into the top or bottom center. The hold downs (plastic clips that SHOULD pop) are going to be on the left/right middle. While continuing to pour some warm water and dish soap around the pry point, work the pry tool around the circle. If you don't have a pry tool, use a non-ridged butterknife wrapped in electrical tape. It will take some force to remove, but it will come out.

Please note, you CANNOT re-use the clips. Your new hood ornament should have some with it.

Remove ALL old adhesive from the paint surface so that the new ornament will go on smoothly. Best of luck!

I have a 1993 BMW 325i, I am having cooling in which the car overheats profusely when running for a little while. I just replaced the thermostat and I am getting ready to go check the waterpump to see if...

U may have a faulty fan clutch,If the fan is turning very slowly while the engine is running its faulty.Also you may have a restriction in the radiator,one way to check the radiator is to remove the hoses and flush water through it to see if it flows straight through.A common issue is the fan clutch be sure to check it first.

1998 bmw overheating at times has had the waterpump

This is typical of BMW 318 and others I suppose.
If after changing the radiator, the hoses, the water pump then the other cause is leakage of coolant at the back of the engine block.

This is hidden but there is a hard plastic outlet which gives away after 5 or more years. If the leakage is serious you can notice the coolant disappearing very fast.

Worse it could be the gasket leaking.
