Default radiator help!

So with the weather lately, I've been trying to drive super nice... you know, take it easy. Well, I was on my way home from work Friday and ran over what seemed to be a little snow pile... Little did I know that some kids had stuck rocks, sticks, etc in the middle of it and just made it LOOK as if it were snow. Needless to say, when I ran it over it made some really nasty sounds.. and then I had to pull over. I checked everything out, saw a few little tiny scratches, looked underneath and everything looked fine... When I woke up Sat. morning it was a different story. Apparently, one of the sticks came up and gouged a little hole in my radiator and made it leak.

Now i'm on the search for a new radiator asap because my mini is my only car so I had to borrow my parents' volvo and it's HORRIBLE. I know that Mishimoto makes a radiator for the car, and have heard good things about them.. problem is, I've never met anyone with a Mishimoto in their mini. Is anyone using this radiator?? or... does anyone have any other ideas?? Anything is appreciated, i need this back on the road now!
