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).

try a second key before you start thinking of a failed starter as the key code may not match and the immobilization system maybe rejecting the current key,

very hard to tell for the untrained eye.but here goes, infrared is a solar film on the windshield (used mostly on high end bmw's). from the outside look at the perimeter of the windshield, the out side 2-3 inches, and see if you can see a difference in the glass. I know there is a black frit band around the edge, that's not it, but the infrared does not run into the black frit band and you can see the infrared end. also in the center by the rear view mirror is your rain sensor. a rain sensor cannot "see" through infrared therefore there is a missing patch or cut out for the rain sensor. again look for a difference in the glass (not the black frit band) I take it you are getting your windshield replaced. Infrared windshields are very expensive and not that common. You can replace a infrared with a regular windshield and vis versa no problem (just you won't have the infrared). stop in at your local glass shop and ask a tech to look and tell you if it is infrared.
