Everyone seems to say HG is gone. So are E36s notorious for blown headgaskets?

Also, how can cars be designed like this? I'm a bit surprised that there was no way to know that your car is overheating unless you monitor the temp dial regularly. Considering how fast a car can overheat, you'd have to monitor it at least once a minute, which seems rather troubling. There really should be a "limp" mode activated or a "bong" to indicate that the car is starting to reach undesirable temperatures.

Another scratch in the wall for a most-likely-trashed E36. Just wonderful.
