This week, Gabe and I cover news from Motoringfile and spend more than a fair bit of time discussing the R50/R53 MINIs. Good Times!
To those of you heading to MoTD, have fun and be sure, as always, to keep it shiny side up!
Todd, Chad and I talking about MINI Coopers, like we like to do. Talking about the R59 Roadster, #mtts2018 tips and keeping it local, among other things. Plus Chad gives us an update about what is going on with Detroit Tuned and the upcoming MINIs on the Dragon.
These are some things you need to be able to click on.
It’s a new month, so here is a new reminder. You keep hearing us talk about Black Roof Radio. That is for the club members that have signed up at Patreon. This gives you, the fine and good looking WRR audience, to have the opportunity to help support the show. If all of you were to sponsors us for as little as $.50 per show, we could go ad free. If all of you were to sponsor us for $1.00 per show, I could make this my full time job! Which would mean more shows, always on time and under budget, plus more on MotoringFile.com and regular episodes of Ride Bikes Radio.
Chad, Gabe and I talk about news from Motoringile.com, Chad’s unhappiness with the 1st gen R56 motor and event reminders. Also to note is the site is still unavailable. I expect to have the squared away by the end of the week!
Some of the links from the show:
This week, join Todd & I as we talk about hauling things in the roadster, the perils of owning a pickup truck and electric cars. And the fact that it’s been a month since our last show. That has been corrected and will be back on track, starting today! We also throw a shout-out to our man Mr. Benham, who is back at MINI of Ontatio! If you are in SoCal, go over and say hi!
A couple of stories that hit our radar recently.
Did you listen to the end? Did you hear the awesome deal Todd has worked out for you guys at MotoringStripes.com? Free shipping and discounts too! Listen for those discount codes! Don’t forget about the other sponsors under the White Roof either. CravenSpeed just fired up their blog to let you know what’s been going on there and OutMotoring is still the place to go for everything you need or want for your MINI!
We are looking for all the feedback this week. You can click back over and leave a note in the shownotes!

The Ask Chad, kind of, show. Since Hank is in need of a battery, Chad helps us out with all of the information you could need about replacing your battery in a 2nd or 3rd generation MINI Cooper. We get through that and move on to news like BMW getting into the ride share game, talking about city bikes like we do on Ride Bikes Radio, which leads us into a discussion about ride sharing vs driving. There will be a post at dbmini this week about bikes and MINIs too.
Remember, don’t be that guy. The guy that asks about #MTTS2018 graphics days before the event. Don’t be that guy that doesn’t know where you send people to get them either! Click that link to check out MotoringStripes to get all your #MTTS2018 graphics and your customer Rally Decals! Do not delay! And you guys have been checking out Cravenspeed, OutMotoring and MNIdoMore, right? Besides our fine Black Roof Radio club members, it’s our sponsors that keep us running, keep us growing and help to keep us awesome! Check them out, won’t you?
Starting off with a reminder: Do as we do, not as Gabe says. And, watch some brake check videos if you are looking for some entertainment.
Going old school this week. Just Gabe, Todd and I and of course we start talking about the weather, winter tires and Gabe fawning over the MF Clubman. Otherwise, we talk LCI updates, sales and events coming up this year.
Don’t be the guy that doesn’t know where to get #mtts2018 graphics. Todd already has you covered over at MotoringStripes. Get them now and tell your friends! Then, post a photo and be sure to tag @whiteroofradio and @toddsmods!
If I can be honest, I would like nothing more than to make this my full time job. Not just White Roof Radio, but to really grow White Roof Media into a decent podcast network talking about cars, bicycles and a few other things I have up my sleeve. Every bit of support you can continue to provide would be amazing. You can join the Black Roof Radio club, you can continue to help spread the word about us (don’t forget Ride Bikes Radio) and leaving good reviews and comments on our iTunes page. Every little bit helps and I appreciate it more than you can possibly know.
Stay tuned for more goodness under the White Roof. Along with Fireball Tim, The Hollywood Car show will be making it’s triumphant return early February. Stay tuned!
Last show of 2017! Full crew for you guys this week too. We get Gabe to tell us all about the Countryman PHEV and a few other thoughts comparing it to the (what else) Clubman. We do a Craigslist challenge in which Brian won with an electric Sentra, we laughed alot, told many jokes and Gabe was an astute professional.
There is still a little bit of time to get over to one of the fine sponsors under the White Roof! CravenSpeed, OutMotoring, Detroit Tuned and Motoring Stripes. HURRY! And are you tired of not getting Black Roof Radio? You can join the club at Patreon!
From the entire WRR Crew, we hope you have a great holiday and new year!
