    Could be a cracked heater matrix. Does it smell like coolant in the floor? Another possibility is the drain under the pollen filter in the scuttle panel is blocked and rain water is getting through the fan and into the passenger footwell.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Glad you sorted the flooded footwell. As for the coolant loss It could be that the coolant tanks has split on the seam. Carefully fill up the expansion tank then check the seam and see if there is coolant around it. This happend to mine. I bought a new one from the dealers for £18. Going to fit it this weekend.
