Most Audis run the fan whenever the cc head is in BILEV, AUTO, or 
defrost(something I find annoying in the winter, but it helps a lot in the 
summer time to keep things cool.)

The After run fan, depending upon the car,
-comes on shortly after shutting off the car
-continues(if it was running before w/CC head)
-only comes on in rare circumstances(200q20v's are notorious for being 
"picky" about turning on the after run fan; mine hardly turned on, even in 
the middle of the summer.)

With all turbos, it's recommended you ease up as you near your destination, 
and idle for a little bit to let things cool down.
