Here's a couple of photos that DS Autowerks took when they replaced the oil cooler plastic pipe/union with the modified aluminium one - this was done at the same time as the timing/cam belt. You can clearly see the tell-tale signs of pink spots of coolant in various places.

Pink sump bolts is a good indication

I haven't actually checked my coolant level since the meet, but did so today.
Down to minimum and I added half a litre of water.
But we know the cause and it should be fixed (by MJ) in October.
