We get an update on what ride Chad took to the Woodward Dream Cruise. Really though, the big deal is that Chad actually closed on a brand new building for Detroit Tuned! Watch for more details to follow very soon, probabaly on the DT Facebook Page, so stay tuned!

Once we do get started, we direct you to the MotoringFile X1 Review. TL/DR; Gabe doesn’t fancy it, mostly because it looks like everything else on the road. For you Clubman owners, watch for an upcoming recall very soon. It seems like a minor issue that is hopefully a simple fix. We also have information on updated oil specifications for all MINIs. Finally, some information about MINI Connected.

Once done with news, and a reminder to visit CravenSpeed.com to check out the new site, I had the chance to drive a Mazda MX-5 last week and the boys let me talk about it. I have only one word; small. Too bad because it was pretty brilliant otherwise. Still, I’d rather have a MINI Cooper Roadster for many reasons. Listen for those.

Thanks to Leopold, aka Philip the VW Tech, for this week’s show art! I asked for you guys to upload photos of you MINI to our Facebook page, or to tag us on Instagram or Twitter. If you do that, your MINI will be featured! Don’t make me keep using press photos, those are boring. Get to sharing those photos gang!

Woofcast #603: It's a Seepage

Chad tells us about the hot thing happening last week in Detroit; the Woodward Dream Cruise. Rumor has it there was even many El Camino's spotted. We do news from MotoringFile like we like to do, including some inside information about what Gabe thinks about the X1, especially how it compares to the Clubman. We'll get him back soon to give us more detail.

If you missed it, I'm bored of using press photos for show art and we are looking at you, the fine and good looking White Roof Radio listener, to share photos of your baby with us to feature as art for the shows! All you have to do is tag us on Instagram or Twitter or post it to the Facebook page and we'll do the rest! Get to tagging and we just might select your MINI to be the featured image. This week's featured MINI is Bruce (shown here in B&W).

Finally, make sure to click over to OutMotoring.com for the full line of Piloti shoes they just added, and CravenSpeed.com to check out the new website!

A little sales, a little JCW Clubman and little talk of what we think is the new normal. All that an more! Special treat again, we are joined by Mr. MotoringFile again. A quick heads up in that we do go long this week.

Thanks for all the birthday wishes gang! Glad you are still digging the show! We plan to keep doing this as long as you keep listening!

Not mentioned in the show, but I want to start featuring your MINI in the show notes. It’s really easy to do! Post to our Facebook page or tag us on Twitter or Instagram and watch out for your MINI to maybe be featured art for an upcoming episode.

birthday

On this day in 2005, after a couple of weeks of testing, setting up the website, getting art work ready and trying to figure out how to record a show, Todd and I posted the very first episode of White Roof Radio under the white roof!

It’s been a long and awesome ride and there is no way, NO WAY, that we could have done this without you guys, the White Roof Radio Army! Thanks for listening, sharing, saying hi at events and all the things.

Also no way I could have gone this long without Todd, Gabe, Michael, Nathaniel, Chad or Alex Sitbon. No way.

We’ve come along way and hopefully still have a long way to go.

Happy Birthday White Roof Radio!!!!!

The 600th spin around the podcast planet. 11th anniversary coming up August 1st. One might say that we have been doing this for quite a while. And we know that many of you have been with us since the beginning or close enough to call it that, and for that, we thank you!

News and opinion this week, like we like to do. We are confused by the sales numbers and we discuss Anders Warming leaving MINI. I think you will enjoy this one.
