50mm Summilux ASPH Hood replacement

I am considering buying a 50Lux that is only about 3 years old, but has a small ding in the hood.

Everything works fine, purely cosmetic, but hopefully I am getting a good price as a result. Been on the fence over 50 Lux vs used 50 APO, but this 50Lux with a discount leaves me enough to almost upgrade my VM f/2 35mm to a used Leica 35 FLE Summilux. 50Lux + 35Lux seems a better bet than just the 50APO (much as I love it)

I will probably leave it, but just wondered if anyone knew whether it was possible to change the 50Lux slide out hood oneself, if I can source the part?

You should be able to purchase one from a Leica Boutique.  It's easy to install.  Recognize that you're in the UK but for reference here's a link to the Miami Boutique where I bought mine.
