Angry BMW E39 528I 1997 overheating issue

Hi guys,

60k miles
car is in mint cond, everything works

Hope you are able to help me here, don't know if this is an air lock.

Here is my problem, my car overheated, I took the car to the bmw garage where they replaced:

The thermostat and thermostat housing

Few weeks later car over heated again, this time same garage done the following:

Pressure tested the cooling system, car passed this twice
They also done a block test which the car passed

They bled the cooling system and all was ok again for a few weeks.

Now the car has overheated again and I can't seem to find out what is going on.
I just seem to have loads of air in the system, has anyone else had this issue?
