Sorry for what happened -

I can't help but think
- revving it highish for a while
- climbing uphill mountains
- full full full blast aircon (with the windows open ?! You know opening the windows with aircon makes the Ac continuously work harder and puts more load)
- a very hot day

All contributed to your high engine temps.

The e46 manual even says temps between blue and red are normal.

BUT I still think something is off - perhaps water pump ? (don't thermostats usually get stuck in open position)?

Good luck with the diagnosis!
