We heard you like the new Clubman, so we put some Clubman in your Clubman. #Clubman. You might have guessed that we spent a fair amount of time talking about the Clubman (!), mostly because the configurator went live. We all took the time to do a quick build out, even with all of the quirks in the configurator. Have you built yours? If so, share it over on the White Roof Radio Facebook page or below in the comments. Let’s see what you built!

Also, Alex is going to Nascar, the Pope was in a Fiat and a little more VW bashing. And some updates about my MINI and a few other things. All good stuff gang, you aren’t going to want to miss it!

Speaking of missing it, if you have noticed the show not showing up in iTunes, there was a glitch in the matrix making things not show up correctly. I think it’s been fixed, but if you are having any issues, please let us know.

Finally, Craven Speed. Go over there and check them out. Our favorites are the shifter stuff, Squeezy thing stuff and performance stuff (including some great parts for you F56 owners). All good stuff, all super high tech, all super awesome. Go on over and check it all out!

Starting off picking on Alex because he won’t stop using Waze and I tell my Waze story. We wish it worked, but Todd started his installation 4 months ago and it’s still not done. Once we finish with that nonsense, Todd tells us about his experience looking at Volvo’s (you’re welcome!). Then, it’s news from MotoringFile, mostly about the Clubman as you can expect. Keep an eye out at your dealer to possibly catch a glimpse before the end of October. We also talk about VW cheating emmissions. This can only end badly for them, as the stock market today is already starting to show.

We finally have time to share the sounds clips Todd recorded in the F56 MINI Cooper S with JCW exhaust. Don’t forget to get the full skinny about this upgrade that Pedro from has been doing to his F56.

Head over to to save up to 10% on selected Alta Performance parts. There are some great pieces there that you must need for you MINI.

We are back and with a short show for you guys this week. Todd, Chad and I spend tonight talking about camber, electric cars and gluten free all the things. Some things that might interest you are the new Motoringfile, Gabe’s Tesla review and your homework for the next show and more! Don’t forget to check out the Lap Motorsports crew too. They are racing MINIs and posting all the details over at Facebook. Finally, some high quality Ask Chad time. It’s really amazing how we can fit so much show in such a short amount of time.

Looking to cool off in September? Can I recommend the CravenSpeed ModTober Fest? Todd and Way will be there striping and modding MINIs. If you want Todd to put graphics on your car, contact him now to get your time scheduled.

Firing up the way back machine again for you guys, but only once this week. Between Chad recovering from MINI on the Mac and Todd printing t-shirts and recovering from the Vegas heat and Alex being out of the country, thought it would be good time to take a break. Enjoy.

This was the first episode in which Mr. Babishkin from the The Bloke and A Bird podcast appeared, plus we talked about the M600. You remember that, don’t you?

Normal service resumes next week. Thanks for your patience, as always!

We start off the next century of White Roof Radio with Michael Babishkin, in for Gabe tonight, as we cover news of the week. Todd blathers on some more about the JCW steering wheel, we talk about the newest VW commercials and a little R56 talk. Oh yea, we also talk about the availability of the parcel shelf and a bit about the M600 run last week.

Check back Monday morning to guess your time for the M600 at Pomona next weekend! That gives you a whole day to think about it. Here are our guesses:

  • Todd…10.27
  • Michael…10.35
  • db…10.4 @ 130-ish MPH

Whoever comes closest without going over wins a brand spankin’ new WRR T-Shirt!

Update…Upon hearing about our contest, Fireball Tim has decided to kick in for the prize pool! Check back tomorrow morning to see what it is. Trust me, it’s very very cool!
