Question about 2001 BMW 5 Series
Pipes get hot while rad cold,
top of rad hot while bottom is cold,
the blower in the car is blowing cold.
Check you do not have an airlock, there should be a bled screw at the top of the system. Your symptoms could be caused by this. Remember to run it up to full temp to be sure all stats are opening to allow escape of trapped air.

Sounds more like a possible heater core issue the heater core is what heats your car by the fan blowing over it and through tour vents ! find the 2 hoses that come out of your firewall on the back side of the engine compartment . run vehicle for 10 to 15 min and see if both of the hoses are hot if one is hot and one is cold heater core is plugged. if both hot have a diff problem. start hear first !!
