We are setting up a 2007 Mini Cooper S Hardtop for towing.
We installed the Blue Ox base plate and we are using Blue Ox Alpha tow bar.
For auxillary braking we purchased the Blue Ox Patriot brake system which will be powered by an independent battery installed in the trunk of the Mini.
Our Mini has the remote keybob with the start and stop button on the dash
We have heard you do not need
the remote key inserted in the dash while towing as the steering column does not lock. Is this true?
