Steve Ambeau took his role about a year ago and got right to work! Gabe spends 30 minutes learning what MINIUSA has been working on and, in particuluar, how Steve thinks things have been going and what will be changing going forward. This is the what you have been waiting for. If you can about MINI, do not miss this.
In case you missed it, go back and listen to Gabe’s interview with Mike Peyton, head of MINIUSA. Both of these can also be found wherever you listen to podcasts, in the White Roof Radio feed. And stay tuned, Woofcast 663 will be coming in the next few days!
Gabe had the chance to Interview Mike Peyton, VP MINIUSA, recently. If you are fan of MINI from the old days and are part of the “they are ruining the brand” club, might we highly recommend you listen to this interview.
The Thirty Year Gap We finally manage to get Gabe on again while he was at an event at the BMW Plant in South Carolina (you have probably seen the pictures). Since we have him, we talk new GP, including pricing, including vs. the previous generation GPs vs. JCWs in General. Think of this as a JCW Show.
Don’t forget #mtts2020 coming soon too! Click the link for the dates and mark those calendars!
Speaking of calendar marking, in case you didn’t hear, the boys and I have decided that it’s been far too long since we hung out with you, the fine and good looking White Roof Radio listener, and have also decided to change that. So, on your way to marking the dates for #mtts2020, stop at March 27th – 29th and put that as the WRR Meetup in Las Vegas! Todd, Chad, Brian and I will be hanging out at Palace Station for that weekend and would love to see a bunch of MINIs on the top parking deck and just hang out. We don’t have anything planned yet and won’t be organizing any group drives, but we will all be there and hope that you will be too!
Todd, Chad and I get together, yet again, to discuss time zone math, Halloween tips and, of course, MINIs! A note to the affiliates, we do run long this week. Make sure to listen to the full show, we are looking for feedback on a potential Las Vegas WRR meetup in 2020. Head into the Flick App (use the code whiteroofradio) to chime in.
Besides that, we talk about the new GP sans swirls graphics that you probably already saw photos of, difficulty getting manual transmissions and not being able to configure a Cooper Clubman which we covered a few shows back. Finally, click over to Jalopnik to read up on what we have talked about before; auto loan debt. Crazy stuff.
From the Department of Shout-outs, did you guys see that our pal from Philly, Susan, has made 200,000 miles on her MINI? Sure, big deal you say? What if I told you her’s is a CVT!! Holy cats! Congrats Susan!
And, from the sponsors, did you get the Keysmart Pro with Tile at Cravenspeed? It looks pretty rad to me, along with all of their other products that are super rad! And if you are looking for car care products (or anything else for that matter), Outmotoring always has your covered. Here is a whole page of awesome stuff to get your MINI winter ready.
Meetups? Palm Springs in October? Las Vegas in 2020? Who’s in? Let us know by downloading the Flick and get into the chat. Once you get it installed on your mobile device, use the code whiteroofradio (all one word) to get in!
A little reminiscing, a little news and catching up with Chad and the last few events in Michigan, including the last Dream Cruise and MINIs on the Mac! 2 events that everyone needs to add to their 2020 and 2021 calendars!
As mentioned, please stop linking up crappy products on Amazon and eBay. Most everything you need for your MINI can be found at Outmotoring.com and Craven Speed. Anything you buy from them can be installed at Detroit Tuned and Todd will make it look hot with custom graphics from MotoringStripes.
You have to listen to the entire show, but we are looking for anyone that would be interested in a Vegas meetup. Comments are open, who’s in? And, for you those of you that aren’t subscribed to Black Roof, you missed some really talk about the upcoming GP.
