The Sport, of course, has an intercooler that completely replaces the auxiliary 
radiator.  The quid pro pro is that the fan assisting the standard radiator 
runs almost all the time.

I've not spent that much time under the S1's bonnet, but I can't remember 
seeing a radiator at all.  It certainly has a _HUGE_ intercooler - I think the 
engine is entirely cooled by the massive fan-assisted oil coolers that take up 
almost all the rear of the car.

I have to get some remote temperature measurement gear myself ...
