    I don't know if your's will have a similar system to mine (e38, 735) but mine does the same, blows cold at low speeds but heater works fine at higher rpm. I'm 99% sure it's the auxiliary water pump, an electric booster pump, having mine changed next week, hoping this'll do the trick!
    There's nowt that can't be fixed with a hammer & some gaffa tape...
