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 all been having crazy schedules and whatnot, keeping us for making a show for you on a consistent basis. I am working on getting us back on track and expect that to happen with the next episode!

Don’t forget about our sponsors when it comes time to spend money on MINI stuff. OutMotoring, Craven Speed and . Detroit Tuned too! Without them, none of this would be possible!

 

Finally a new show for you guys! Apologies for the delay. If you were a memeber of the The Club you would have had this earlier this week plus you get access to Black Roof Radio, giving you an extra 2 shows a month!

Moving on, we spend this week getting caught up. #MTTS2018 details, JCW GP details (hint:HUGE HORSEPOWER, no AWD), an new Marketing firm for MINIUSA and more.

Don't forget the fine sponsors here under the White Roof either! OutMotoring.com and CravenSpeed. If you need something for you or your MINI, these are the guys that are going to hook you up!

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 photoshop work. Look at the shadows in this week’s show image. The light is coming from 3 suns, like we are on Alderon! Speaking of, did you hear about the Lego Millennium Falcon? 7500+ pieces and an $800 price tag.

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!

Plus a host of other topics this week. We were a bit all over the place as we like to do sometimes. If you missed it, there was a new episode of Black Roof Radio posted earlier this week. You can join the club and get access to those episodes plus early access to all shows over at the Patreon Clubhouse.

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, white, gray or black.

As of this posting, we have entered our 13th year of podcasting! And, as Todd likes to say, we don’t hate each other yet! Thanks to all of you, old timers and n00bs alike, for checking us out, subscribing, sharing it with your friends and leaving us nice reviews on our iTunes page. I couldn’t do it without the guys and we wouldn’t do it if it wasn’t for you guys. THANKS!

Joined by Mr. Bridger from MotoringFile this week and we starting talking about the new Signature Line and pretty much go everywhere from there. After losing Gabe, we talk about the mess that is MINIUSA’s marketing vs. What The Dealers are doing. And I log into the Owners Lounge.

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. Want in? Just click over and kick in a buck per show (or less!) to be a part of the Club!
