I towed a 2013 mini six speed manual and I don稚 know of any significant differences between the years.
Mine has no steering wheel lock and I didn稚 put the fob in the ignition slot. Yours may not have a slot for a fob, but the point is, beyond no steering lock, there is no need for the ignition to be ON. My toad braking system is hard wired to the battery so no cigarette lighter socket is used. If you need a socket, check if the ignition needs to be ON. If it does, your odometer will also register miles towed.
Protocol? Connect tow bar, connect umbilical cord, check lights, test toad break away switch, put in neutral, release parking brake.
