Woofcast 645: Todd was Wrong That's right, 13 years ago White Roof Radio started as just 2 guys talking about MINI Coopers. Many of you were there when we started, and we really appreciate you sticking with us! For this week, Todd talks cracked windscreen, I talk cracked fuel filter housing plus we were impressed with the turn out of #mtts2018.

Old Guy Ailment Problems In which db & Todd get caught up after more than a month of not making a show. If you want more of the gory details, check out this week's Black Roof Radio.

Of course we talk about the Bubble Car, which sold for $US36K. I'll be taking bets on whether or not Gabe keeps the Clubman and adds it to his stable of...

Cheerios in the Cupholder The Ask Chad, kind of, show. Since Hank is in need of a battery, Chad helps us out with all of the information you could need about replacing your battery in a 2nd or 3rd generation MINI Cooper. We get through that and move on to news like BMW getting into the ride share game, talking about city bikes like we do on Ride Bikes Radio, which leads us into a discussion about ride sharing vs driving. There will be a post at dbmini this week about bikes and MINIs too....

Last show of 2017! Full crew for you guys this week too. We get Gabe to tell us all about the Countryman PHEV and a few other thoughts comparing it to the (what else) Clubman. We do a Craigslist challenge in which Brian won with an electric Sentra, we laughed alot, told many jokes and Gabe was an astute professional.

A bit late getting this to you guys, but in this episode we have Todd battling Gabe about electric cars. Then, we move on to becoming the marketing dept. for MINIUSA.

11/22/2017

Todd, Chad and Gabe tonight. Sure, I'm there too, but here's the thing. Had some technical issues while recording last week where my side did actually get recorded. You probably won't notice too much, but then again, you might. Call it the Mad Libs edition of White Roof Radio. Apologies in advance. It's Christmas time (or your holiday of choice), and you want to make sure to get something cool for that MINI enthusiast in your life! Don't forget the fine sponsors under the White Roof:...

10/27/2017

What started as a short show to catch up with Brian about his trip to Germany for a special event held for MINI and BMW Genius', turned into another rousing edition of White Roof Radio! Todd admits that the JCW Clubman isn't as bad as he initially thought, at least on the track, Brian does let us know everything (he could) that he learned from his trip to Munich, and Gabe gets really riled up about Apple Car Play and his un-realistic expectations of it. Todd is off to SEMA next week. If...

Very oddly shaped show for you guys this week. Todd took the helm 100% this week, with Chad and AJ. Skipping news this week, they spent some time talking about driving MINIs, fast, in a controlled environment. AJ was on the west coast at the BMW Driving Center in Palm Springs, Todd did a Miles Ahead event in Kansas City and Chad even took the DT Mule out for some track time. Plus Todd fills us in on why he doesn't really like the Clubman. Your patience lately has been appreciated! We have...

Woofcast 629: Never Try to Teach a Pig to Sing

9/1/2017
More
With the announcement of the MINI Electric concept this week, our Slack channel was blowing up, so we figured we had better get that on wax before we lost it! We talk about the design of the concept and our thoughts about it and electric cars overall. Then, because most of the time we can't help ourselves, we started in on marketing and how we think it's pretty ridiculous lately and not doing much to help sell cars. What do you think? Comments are open! But, seriously, talk about bad...

FINALLY a new show for you guys! Full crew, almost, an a long show too! Chad updates us about MINIs on the Mack and what's happening at Detroit Tuned (hint: blue mohawk) before we get into the news. Gabe continues to profess his love for the JCW Clubman, while agreeing that the Countryman is good too. And then well all tell him he is wrong about the new MINI package that is supposed to look like Gulf livery. It just doesn't, but it's good on MINI to give us a car that isn't black, grey,...
