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.
A shorter than normal show this week that is also oddly shaped. Trying to get something while the gettin’ was good. Todd and Gabe were available for about 45 minutes, so one short show it is! Quite a bit more GP talk, along with questioning the difference in power output for the GP models. Gabe is pro, Todd and I are con. What say you? If you are looking for the random JCW GP video I mentioned, you can find that over at YouTube.
Quick reminder gang; we know you really enjoy using Facebook. Here’s the thing; when you leave those awesome comments over there, it’s like talking in an empty room. Nobody sees those comments. Gabe doesn’t see them. Todd doesn’t see them. I don’t see them. MINI and MINIUSA don’t see them. If you want your voice to be heard, make sure you are leaving those comments at White Roof Radio or MotoringFile
It has been a while since we have made a show, and we haven’t made many shows so far for 2019. Listen in; stuff has been going on which has been keeping us from making a show.
Todd is going to get a GP, Gabe hates 4 spoke wheels and Chad Likes ham and I have finally figured out how to drive an automatic. I know I said back in Episode 652, it has taken me this long to figure it out.
We discuss the upcoming GP, the new Electric MINI, the current MotoringFile company car, sales and more. Just 4 dudes talking about MINI Cooper stuff, like we like to do.
Detroit Tuned is doing video, Gabe posted some stories to MotoringFile that you should read, but we aren’t talking about that this week. We start off with shout-outs to our girl Crazy Susan with her crazy odometer readings for a CVT and Xiek, who cracked FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND kilometers on his Canadian MINI! That’s more miles than Roxy, for the record! Well done sir!
I drive an F56, we compare rattles in our MINIs and Chad is making videos for Detroit Tuned and getting ready to go the dragon. We really think you are going to enjoy this show! If you are going to the Dragon and want Chad and Marzo to do some work on your car, you still have time to book that. Email address is in the show, but make sure you do that ASAP!
For those of you that called us out for the poor sound quality in the last episode, thank you! We knew it and posted it anyway. That won’t happen again.
When you get a minute, check out the fine sponsors under the White Roof; CravenSpeed and Out Motoring. They really keep us going and have been a proud supporter of both WRR and MotoringFile since 2005, if not sooner! And don’t keep these guys to yourself. Share with your friends, club members, facebook, etc…
