That's a good question and I'm guessing the answers will vary. I tow my FWD car with the tranny in park. I'm of the thought that the less movement the better and less likely the straps will loosen. On that note one thing that has helped me is; after I strap on the wheels I start the car and move the steering wheel back & forth, re-tighten the straps then repeat till I can't adjust any tighter.

On a Mini, it probably doesn't matter, as the transmission is a paddle-shfted twin clutch, not a conventional torque converter. Unless the engine is running, I believe the setting of the internas is the same in either Park or neutral.
