Why did you buy a booster pack? did you know the battery was a good one, fairly recent, so knew it cant be just a battery fault?
MINI electrical systems can go haywire if the battery voltage keeps dropping below a certain point.

Assuming that you have Xenon lights, it could be the Xenon bulb itself or the ballast. Also, if you have a car with a sunroof, check for water ingress down to the FRM ECU which is located in the passenger side footwell.

If you have access to a BMW scan tool (not a generic one mind you), then you should check for errors on the FRM. The computers are capable of logging such intermittent errors.

I had a similar problem on my 07 R56, which disappeared after fixing the sunroof drains. Go figure...
