Tonight joined by the mythical guy Gabe Bridger for news of the week from Motoringfile.com and a few more things. Stick around because he’s with us tomorrow as well!
We talk about news, Todd figuring out Dynolicious and getting really good results from it and upcoming reviews at Motoringfile among other things.
Thanks to those of you that have brought our review count on iTunes up to 50! We really appreciate it, especially the happy birthdays. We couldn’t have done it without you, the White Roof Radio listener. Thanks!
Check back tomorrow for Todd and Gabe talking about JCW stuff. Lots and lots of JCW stuff.
Joined again by Chad Miller from Detroit Tuned. If you are in the greater Detroit area and looking for an independant shop to work on your MINI, check ‘em out. And if you are still suffering from the stuck air bag light, check with your dealer. Chad thinks they extended that warranty again, so it’s worth checking out.
We talk about Todd’s experience with the new iPhone/iPod touch app Dynolicious which told him his GP has gone from 13hp to 590hp. In fairness, he hasn’t been able to fully test it yet. Of course, that led to us talking about dynos in general and what kind of tuning Chad has been doing to the R56.
Otherwise, a little sales talk, a little dealer talk, Todd’s Honda Del Sol (again), and parts stock, among other things.
As I mentioned during last nights show and tonight, I have started a new show with Fireball Tim called The Hollywood Car Show where we talk about upcoming movies, cool cars in movies and in television. I think it’s a lot of fun and think you might like it too. Find it at thehollywoodcarshow.com.
Contest? Been a while since we did one of those. Remember, you have to leave a comment in the show notes at WRR to be able to play along. Oh, and you have to listen to the show to see what it is. Winner gets a free WRR T-Shirt! If you work at a MINI dealer in any way shape or form, you can’t play along. Sorry.
If you missed the AMVIV announcement, it’s here. Remember, book early and save some $$ OR design new art and get your whole trip almost free of charge.
Does anyone know where the term “put a pin in it” comes from?
Finally, I briefly mentioned it here and I’ve posted it once, but I have started a new show with Fireball Tim and you can find that over at thehollywoodcarshow.com. We talk about movies, cars in movies and interview cool people. Show number 5 goes up this week and I think it’s worth checking out.
If MTTS is finished, it must mean it’s time to start thinking about A MINI Vacation in Vegas. Sure, it’s still 8 months away, but it’s never too earlier to start planning a trip to Vegas!
In response to the steep price jump in room rates for AMVIV5, we have negotiated and sliding rate for AMVIV6. The early birds save $20 a night! If you book your room by January 25th, you pay $79 for courtyard rooms and $119 for Tower rooms, which is $10 per night less than in 2008.
That’s a smokin’ deal if you book early.
And, if you are a designer-type that is looking for the chance to attend AMVIV mostly free of charge, plus get a ton of free promotion for you or your company, you might be interested in this.
Many of you will be aware that Dee from CooperCards designed the AMVIV5 shirt, hat and event book cover. We have decided to make this an annual occurrence, having someone in the MINI community design the event artwork.
So, design something cool for AMVIV this year and get 2 free room nights during AMVIV and a ton of free promotion! Yet another smokin’ deal.
All of this information can be found at AMVIV.com.

Before we even start, is Jennifer Garner in the house? If so, please leave a note for Todd. Moving on.
Todd has a new theme song. Practically made me choke. We were kinda on fire tonight, and you get to benefit.
Among the things we talk about is this Audi R8 that is beyond awesome. You should follow that link and check it out.
Besides Todd wanting an R8, we also talk a short bit about the upcoming Chevorlet Volt.
Todd tried out the Dynolicious iPhone App. His GP is putting out a whopping 13hp! Wooooooo! More testing will follow, don’t you worry. Have you tested it? What did you think? Leave a note or comment on Facebook page.
We finish by talking JCW. One of my favorite topics. Actually, we started talking about my experience with the Factory JCW car at MTTS and goes from there.
If you want to get any of the photos from MTTS that were taken by the photographers that were there, do yourself a favor by clicking over to mttsphotos.com. If you are looking for all of our MTTS coverage because you missed any of it, you can find it here.
Next week we will be 3. Listen in to see who if Gabe can’t make it.
Finally, how about some itunes reviews? We’re at 46 right now and we think 4 more for our 3rd birthday would be nice. While you are there, why not press the subscribe button again? You know, you are there already, so you might as well. Thanks!
Starting off with a little Olympic coverage and ranting before getting into news of the week from Motoringfile.
If you missed it, the professional photogs that were with us during all of the MTTS stops have put all of thier photos up available for purchase. You can find them all over at mttsphotos.com. There are a ton of great photos!
If you are curious about this whole RSS thing and want to jump on the bandwagon, let us know. I’m more than happy to help out.
Finally, there are some minor quality issues this time around. I sound a little fuzzy. Didn’t know it happened and the problem has already been corrected.
