To those towing a Mini Cooper

How are your rear under-tow lights hooked up?

Diodes, separate bulbs/LEDs, magnetic, etc.

We use a completely independent system from BlueOX. It is powered by the 7 pin plug from the motorhome and the bulb sockets are mounted right into the Mini taillight housing. This system takes a little time to install but works well and completely bypasses the Mini wiring system.

I use magnetic lights mounted on brackets made from joist hangers. Cut and fitted the bracket and screwed it to fit in the crack where the trunk closes. Three screws on each side to remove when not towing. Ran the 4 wire cable out the hole in the bottom of the trunk, tie wrapped it to the under carriage and out the grill with a 4' lead that stuffs back into a space behind the grill when not being used. Bought an adapter, 4 to 7, and it plugs into my Winnebago and MBZ SUV. I can tow it in to service.
