Hi, I found mine leaking from the coolant temp sensor on the thermostat housing,i just changed the whole unit as It came with new gasket/thermostat/sensor, issue sorted for me.

Try removing the airbox and look around the sensor ?

Hi, did you manage to find the leak at all ?

Have you tried the newspaper method under the car overnight to see roughly where the coolant is dripping from then trace it back up along the wet line ?
