It's the oil cooler.

Sump plug is leaking as well, needs a new sump really as the threads are chewed up and has a couple of weeps around it

Yep, I did check the oil soon as I noticed the coolant going down every few days.
it's due a service anyway, guess what I'll be doing when I'm "off work" over half term :lol:
