I'm more inclined to go with intermittent electric fan operation - dodgy connector or something - especially if the problem occurred at low speed on a long climb at high ambient temps. The electric fan is designed to kick in when there isn't enough cooling air flow from forward speed or the engine driven fan (if fitted).

Anyway, time will tell. Good luck with the fix. A visit to RX Automotive may be helpful.
It's SMG and I'm pretty sure M's have different setups to non Ms.

It was at speeds between 60-80 when it occurred. I could be wrong but don't think a fan failure would make that much of a difference at those speeds?

I'll try get the codes read though.
