Default Install a 03 Tower Strut Brace on an 08 ?

Anybody know if a forward Strut Tower Brace from a 2003 MCS will correctly install on a 2008 MCS?

Are the bolt patterns the same?

Is the distance between the towers identical? Same orientation?

an 03 will fit this :
Fits 2002-2006 R50 MINI Cooper and R53 MINI Cooper S, and 2005-2008 R52 MINI Convertibles.
The 08 hardtops have different numbers in the catalogs so there must be a difference
