hood fitment

Hey all, I searched on the forum but could not find anything about this.
Any way, my wife and I just bought a 2013 clubman that needs some body work. I will be doing the work myself but I am having a difficult time finding a used hood for the base model. I did find one at a junkyard that is off of an S model but was not sure if it would fit. The research that I did says that it should fit with the only difference being the scoop. I was wondering if anyone here has actually put an S hood on a base model, or if they know anyone that has done so. I do not see why the hoods would be that different but I wanted to make sure before I spent $300 on a hood that does not fit. Thanks in advance. Ill try to post some pictures after its all fixed up.

I haven't done the swap, but I remember reading about others that have done it. I'm pretty sure it won't be a problem.

When you reassemble everything, one thing to note is that the horizontal gap between the front bumper cover and the hood (under the headlights) has a little bit of adjustment. If you don't watch it, the gap on one side might not match the gap on the other side....I know because I've made the same mistake.
