Help, is this a cooper S??

Hi Gang!

I am looking to buy my first mini cooper. I went to the dealer thinking it was going to be looking at a standard cooper and when he pulled the car around for a test drive, there was a "S" on the side. BUT the there was no hood scoop. Also It felt quick but didnt have a "turbo" feel to it. no "s" on the side as well. Could it be a certain package?

Any help..

I did that ... I think the "MP543" portion is incorrect.

Finally found it on the website by looking through all the MINI Next cars.

Using the last 7 of VIN (TX97034) on the following site indicate it's a Cooper built 07/09/2010 ...
