Baseplate Fit on 2007 Mini Cooper S Hatchback


BX1304. Will this fit my 2007 Mini Cooper Model S hatchback 2D 1.6L l4 MPI?


Expert Reply:

We do have baseplates that are a fit for your 2007 Mini Cooper S hatchback, though the Blue Ox ones you mentioned aren't a fit; instead what you will need are baseplates from Roadmaster, which I verified with them will fit your '07 Mini Cooper S hatchback and are the following part:

- Roadmaster EZ Base Plate Kit # 521877-1

Along with these base plates, there are a number of other parts that will be needed so you can flat tow your Mini Cooper S, which I'll list our for you to make it easy to order:

- etrailer SD Non-Binding Tow Bar for Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plates # e44ZR
- Roadmaster Tail Light Wiring Kit with Bulbs # RM-155
- Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit - Mini Cooper # RM-751440
- Roadmaster InvisiBrake Supplemental Braking System # RM-8700

The etrailer SD tow bar is great due to its long arms which make it easier to maneuver while towing, and it also comes with safety chains so you don't have to make a separate purchase; overall, this is easily the best value for a tow bar. The tail light wiring kit is great because it bypasses your Mini's electrical system entirely, and the InvisiBrake gives you smooth braking and is a one-time install for easy use. Braking systems on your Mini will also need the Stop Light Switch to allow it to function properly.

I have added links below to video reviews for you to check out as well if you'd like to take a look.
