I recently retrofitted OEM Union Jack lights (look great, v grateful for advice from the forum), but I‘m looking to have a few separate issues looked at by Mini, hopefully under MOT protect.

Will they care about the retrofitted lights?
If so, would you bother swapping the stock lights back on?

They shouldn't be interested in the lights if they're genuine ones.
What issues are you having?

It’s a Cooper D and has a check engine light, OBD scan and some googling implies carbon clogged pressure sensor pipe.
Also yesterday, an error flagged up about vertical headlight beam alignment issue, and from googling has scared me about the integrity of the wiring loom.
Head beam alignment and check engine light would cause the car to fail an MOT, so my understanding is that Mini would act on this under MOT protect?

As you have MOT protect i'd assume you have warranty? if so that should cover the problems

How old is the car as some early 14-16 had electrical faults caused by water running from the scuttle panel into the wiring in the footwells

It’s a 2015 Cooper D, I believe the TLC pack with it covers its first 3 MOTs under MOT protect?

They won't care about the tail lights being swapped. You may find the pressure sensor just needs a clean. Quite a few videos on YouTube showing you how to do it. Do you have the halogen or LED headlights?

Gave the cleaning of it a go, was completely filthy, went off for a while, came back ~100 miles later. A few threads on the forum talk about the pipe to the sensor being clogged with carbon, which I’m hoping is the only issue.
Just thought that if I can now have that looked at along with the vertical alignment at no cost, would be ideal.
Headlights are halogen.
