Smile Turbo fan/Mechanic question

Good day everyone. Just got a used 2010 S with 85k on it.....AFAICT, engine's good - tidy, no leaks, pulls hard.

My questions:

1) I know that '07 and up have turbo and after having driven an evo and an R56, after engine shut off, the cooling fan kicks in to help cool the turbo. Mine, however, DOES NOT make any noise at all after engine shut off. Absolutely quiet. Granted, summers here are not harsh and it was high 70's today to maybe around 80. I gunned it on the freeway when some punk with a Fiat 500 decided to race. SMOKED his ***. But anyways.....i got off the freeway and shut off the engine to see if the fan would go on and it STILL didnt after having it go 100+. The dealer just replaced the thermostat right before i bought the R56. Anything to do with it? Good or bad that the fan is not engaging? Is it within the normal engine operation behavior considering its not THAT hot out?

2) I live in Washington state ( Seattle ). Anyone up here know of a good shop and/or mini mechanic? Desperately need one as the only mini expert i know lives in socal, where i used to live.

Any info would be GREATLY appreciated! Cheers!
