Hi New Cooper SD owner

Its a 2011 model and it`s just i`ve noticed a couple of things that I would like to compare with other SD owners.
1st is when the heater controls is at the screen on lowest setting it sounds as if it is on number 3 compared to my previous car.
And 2 noticed this today after a 25 mile trip 30 mins after parking up I lifted the hood and the top of the engine was very hot, far hotter than I can remember any of my previous cars being.
What are yours like?

I have a 2011 SD too and due to an EGR issue when i got home last night after a 15mile journey i lifted the lid to remove the plastic cover and it was scorching ! so I am assuming this is fairly normal at least i hope it is because having an EGR issue is enough to tip me over the edge as it is without any other crap happening !
