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 sponsors we have under the white roof, including our newest sponsor; HIDextra. Check them out to view the best in HID and LED headlight conversion kits and accessories for your MINI and just about every car make! Don’t forget, for the rest of April use the code of mini15 at check out to save 15% on your order. Go on over and show them why White Roof Radio has the best listeners, won’t you?

We did have some issues with Black Roof this week if you are looking for it. It’s a nerd thing problem that I couldn’t resolve. I’ll be getting something up for you guys as soon as possible!

Finally, if you are a Tumblr user, you can now find White Roof Radio there!

I had the opportunity to interview Luis Parocarpi from Lap Motorsports before he headed south of the border for a Rally in this fine looking Countryman. We talked about the success at Daytona, the challenges of Sebring, a little history and the rally in the desert.

Be sure to follow along with this seasons IMSA racing. Next event is in May and can usually be viewed at imsa.com.

In this episode, named after our man Alex based on his Hammer & Coop name. We spend some time talking about that, of course, along with some other examples of the great, and so not great, work of BSSP. Of course this came up because the marketing shake-up at MINIUSA continues. Gabe joins us for some real in-depth information that you are sure to enjoy.

We did run a bit long this week. Too long to add the interview with Luis Perocarpi, owner of Lap Motorsports. Watch for that early next week to show up in your feed. It was really fun to meet him and talk to him about the races at Daytona, Sebring and the upcoming race at Circuit of the Americas. Plus some cool rally stuff that he is doing this week in a lifted R60 Countryman!

I lied about this week’s show image. I was going to be a cool shot of a classic Mini with a VTEC engine uploaded to our Patreon Community by Mr. Roberts.

Instead, it’s the F60 with bicycles on the roof submitted by our man Brian Dallas. He uploaded this to our facebook page and now it’s the album art for this week’s show. Want us to feature a photo of your MINI? All you have to do is upload it to our Facebook page or do an ‘@’ reply to @whiteroofradio on Twitter or Instagram. You can also upload it to the Patreon page. It’s not a competition gang, I will pick the one I like best and boom!

It’s time to get restocked on your car cleaning supplies, and our friend Axle Grease Coyote has a full line of car care products available at Outmotoring.com. Perfect for restocking your supplies!

Big show for you guys this week. A quick note to the affliates, we do go long.

Gabe joins in tonight with myself, Todd and Alex. We cover a ton of stuff including Todd’s week with a JCW Convertible, a pretty big shake up at MINIUSA, Gabe’s continued love affair with the Clubman, Alex’s quick thoughts about the new Ferrari and me still thinking the R56 is pretty fall aparty. All of this and more. Join us!

Thanks to Mark G for sending over that sexy photo for this week’s album art. All he did was upload it to our Facebook page and BOOM, it’s there. Your MINI can be featured here as well, just ‘@’ reply us at Twitter or Instagram or upload it to our Facebook or Patreon page.
