A short one for you tonight. We do a bit of rumor squashing, some updates to MINI stuff around the web and some basic rambling on and on about whatever we can think of.
Keep a watch out for Brad Day’s upcoming audio review of the Zune. I would expect to have that ready by the middle of February.
If you are a fan of Robert in Toronto’s work, he has started his own podcast! He goes to a lot of movies with his wife, so they are reviewing them in his MINI! You can check it out over at his site or here at iTunes.
And, if you are looking for some great info on Cruising, be sure to check out My Cruise Planner, run by Michael and Patricia Babishkin. They have a great podcast too! You can find them at iTunes here.
Finally, this just in, but we will have Phil Wicks from the NAMCC on next week! Should be great.
If you are one that is looking for an easy way to manage the older shows that aren’t included in the feed? Definitely listen in.
Plus, news of the week from Motoringfile. Including more talk on the 1 Series (yes, again) (yes I did, in fact, roll my eyes).
Or the “where the hell has Randy been show”.
WARNING…this episode wasn’t edited as much as others. There might be parts here that will make your fellow cube dwellers look over at you to see what you are looking at. No f bombs or anything, but when you start talking about the H2, things can get silly.
We turn Randy loose on the mic to fill us in on what he has been up to and squash some rumors. No, he hasn’t been fixing Hummers or running the shop at a go fast ranch.
He also revisits our weekend in St. Louis, when Todd let his car be transformed into the Mule v2.0 and throws out big thanks to EVERYONE that helped Randy finish the NAMCC season last year.
Watch for changes upcoming at Webb Motorsports. Like a brand new chatroom and new monthly podcast! And don’t forget the best way to get ahold of Randy is via email. That’s randy (at) webbmotorsports (dot) com. It’s also all over the site as well.
Woofcast #127: Download: download-manager.php?id=1
We start by answering some questions sent in via email from what I think is our only Zune listener. He asked about the MCAW Auto-Up circuit, the Aux Port adapter and Euro Parcel shelf. Of course, if you use any of these, please feel free to share your experiences with them in the comments below! There is a website too that lists all of the recalls for BMW and MINI. I have lost the address but I will hunt through my history and try to find it. You should also be able to get that from your Service Advisor, bribing tips included.
Oh yea, Randy Webb. Takes a break from flying to sit in on the news with us tonight. We do go long but we spent a lot of time on the news with the new R56 pictures posted this week and we spent some time talking about the upcoming release of the BMW 1 Series in the US.
Be sure to check in tomorrow when we actually get to ask Randy where the hell he has been, what’s going on with Webb Motorsports and what’s coming up in the future. You are going to want to check this out for sure!
Gadget Review #3
Well, not so much a gadet review as much as it is db, Todd and Gabe talking about the iPhone.
This was recorded during Woof 124.

Robert sent this to me and I thought it was good enough to share.
Except for the fact that they are using Hyundai’s as stunt cars, it’s a great way to waste about 8 minutes.
Starting off with some pigskin talk. Keeping these guys on track sometimes is really a chore! Turns out Gabe gets to drive the R56 Superbowl weekend, so Todd and I were telling him how best to proceed. Also, we do go long tonight with the interview.
Tonight we interviewed Andrew ‘Agro’ Ross about the upcoming AMVIV IV, but first, we spent some time talking about the Motorby pilot program, previously reported over at Motoringfile and picked up by every automotive web site as well as SlashDot.
A few quick notes about run-flat tires too.
- All of the MINI OEM wheels will take a non-runflat tire
- Non-run flat tires WILL improve your ride quality if you have an R50 or R53
- Non-run flat tires WILL change the handling characteristics of your MINI
- Non-run flat tires are cheaper than run-flats
- Non-run flat tires won’t run flat. You will need a kit (slime, air pump), a cell phone, a AAA card or all three.
WRR Listener AGrainger has put together a great list of supplies that he carries with him over at this NAM thread. I think you might find the list a little big, but you will get some great ideas from it. Thanks Aaron!
