Ah, I didn't realize that all Mini would need to do would be to use a different part that it already stocks. Thanks for explaining. It does seem strange they would put a hood with an air scoop on an EV, but then block off the air intake. I guess it's just a style choice, then. Seems like you should be able to find another Mini owner who would be happy to swap hoods, if your paint jobs match. Maybe advertise on Craigslist?
