Woofcast 637: Cheerios in the Cupholder

2/4/2018
More
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. There is still a little bit of time to get over to one of the fine sponsors under the White Roof! CravenSpeed, OutMotoring, Detroit Tuned and Motoring Stripes. HURRY! And are...

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. A note to the affliates, we do go a bit long this week. Part of our current frustration with the marketing was kicked off with this video. Want early access to the shows?

Woofcast 633: The Mad Lib Edition

11/22/2017
More
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:...

Woofcast 632: Todd Makes a Horse Joke

10/27/2017
More
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...

Woofcast 631: AJ Can Park In A Box

10/17/2017
More
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...

Woofcast 628: "I Love The Clubman" -- G. Bridger, 2017

8/25/2017
More
It's that crazy slow time of the year where nothing is really happening anywhere due to back to school. Still, we solidier on and talk about flight delays, throttle response in a Ferrari vs. a MINI, and RAV4s jumping over a draw bridge in New Jersey. We also talk about MINIs and some BMW stuff from BimmerFile too! MINI E Concept to debut at Frankfurt http://www.motoringfile.com/2017/08/22/mf-review-jcw-clubman-vs-countryman-cooper-s/ BMW Z4 Concept is pretty sweet! BMW at the Monterey...

Woofcast 627: The Countryman Crashes Well

8/11/2017
More
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,...

JCW Sales are Insane Joined by Mr. Bridger from MotoringFile this week and we starting talking about the new Signature Line and pretty much go everywhere from there.

Just Todd and I tonight, talking about his tire and wheel problem and remembering White Roof Radio hosts of old. Good times! Then, how about those Lap Motor Sports guys with the 1-2-5 win at Watkins Glen! Then, it's sales, again, and how we think they fit in with the latest JD Power Survey results. We have some interesting thoughts on this. What do you think? Comments are open! Also, for you Patrons, there is a brand new Black Roof Radio up. Plenty of inside baseball there this week too....

Woofcast 622: Todd is the Anti-Chrome

5/28/2017

Gabe joins us this week to talk about the new JCW Clubman, which is the MotoringFile company car for the next year. We also discuss the possibility of Frank Stephenson returning to head up MINI design. You would think that would be enough, but NO! We talk about the issues that Alex had with his tires, driving an automatic roadster across the desert and the difference graphics make on a MINI. Big show this week that we think you will like. Otherwise we are back from AMVIV and expect regular...

Woofcast 621: Gert Hildebrand Was Right

5/5/2017

Woofcast 621 Gabe is offended, still loves the Clubman and we call him on it and then give him the time to explain himself. I am pretty sure he did a good job of it. Alex had the chance to drive Todd's race car and roadster, plus a bunch of other cars, and I ask the boys to buy a MINI with only $8kUS to spend, which brought us our first mention of the Clubvan for 2017. Sure, we go long this week, but it's a really great show. Oh yea, read about the $50K mini van here. AMVIV updates this...

Woofcast 620: The Chad Show

4/21/2017

Let's start this episode with some questionably helpful PSAs. Very questionable. Then, it's a few news stories, including the Classic Mini, remastered by David Brown Automotive. This link will give you some cool time wasting to be sure. Plus we also take a look at possible LCI changes on the F56, but we are skeptical. Finally, the good reverend lays down some knowledge about MINI values and part prices, plus we pick the MINI we would buy with a limited budget. Don't forget the fine...
