A friend puts his mini on a dolly. The only issue is it is low and he damaged his lower front facade loading it. You might check your setup before loading. Might have to make some wood ramps do decrease the approach angle

I flat tow mine also. Itís a 08 w/6 sp, blue ox and brake buddy. I use magnetic led lights from Harbor Freight. BMW will void the warranty if you tow 4down, but mine no is no longer covered anyway.

There are a couple reports of people using dolly's and then having to replace some of the lower plastics from damage from the ramps. We too went 4-down, but you'd need a manual transmission for that.
