I would think the car is cool enough to check the coolant? So should I add more coolant or wait and check later? I'm new to E46's. Help is appreciated. Thanks.

I would add till it shows the 2nd ball popping out and drive a bit maybe a day see if it moved after full cool down, I just had a shop do my system with a flush and been topping it with just a splash twice in one month but I think more.my paranoia and it's still bleeding air out since I only provide them with 1 gallon of coolant for the whole cooling component replacment job.
