1995 e36 m3 low coolant

Hi guys,

I bought this old 1995 e36 m3 with 125K miles a few days ago. So after a day the low coolant level popped up on the OBC. I inspected it, it was lower than the black mark, got it flushed today with BMW coolant.

Bringing it home and left it for a couple of hours. Started the car, the low coolant check pops up again on the OBC. when I open the cap and leave the car running, the level is way below like 2 inches the black zabalt line. The car does not overheat at all as far as the temperature goes.

The radiator cap looks new so I do not suspect at this point that it could be the cap. I am having a technician look at it tomorrow morning but any ideas guys as to what it could be. Also no visible leaks on the driveway when I park the car.
