F30 oil coolers?

I was looking at pictures and on RealOEM, and I can't figure this one out. Maybe guys that already have there's in their garage can help.

Does the M-Sport line have 2 oil coolers? One in front of each wheel? Does the sport line have only 1, in front of the passenger wheel, and the other lines have none? I asking after looking at these pictures

On this pic of a sport line, you can clearly see an open vent on the pass side next to the fog lamp with a cooler behind. On the drivers side, the same position is closed up.

On this pic of the M-Sport, I think I see what looks like another oil cooler behind the vent on the drivers side

In this pic of the Luxury line, both vent positions are closed up

I think these are all 328's (can't confirm) from a Canadian F30 owners meet - are there any differences with the 335's?

Anybody that knows for certain or wants to pop out to their garage and check let me know which model you have and where/how many oil coolers are there.

the sport line and the M sport get an oil cooler but there is only one. I believe that is the intercooler on the drivers side.

I was informed by a BMW CA that all the F30 335i models have an oil cooler but the 328i models do not have the oil cooler. The "Line" of the vehicle has no bearing on whether or not the vehicle comes equipped with an oil cooler.
