I replaced my melty hood scoop just so it wouldn't look gross and warped but I took the opportunity to get an M7 carbon fiber Vortex 2 scoop because it wouldn't melt and really because it looks cool- I'd just bought my car and wanted to make it feel like it was mine by putting my stamp on it. A nice side benefit is that I can hear my turbo blow off a little louder. I don't have any illusions of huge performance gains, but it can't hurt to keep temps a little lower in the engine bay. I'm curious about the drag now that you mention it, but it's not like a Mini is the most aerodynamic thing out there anyway.
