Before getting into the news, I give a quick update on my MINI, including a possible reason for my check engine light coming on, plus I had a wtf moment.
For news of the week, from Motoringfile as always, and Gabe actually was able to join us for a little bit this week too with an update on his new ride plus his thoughts on the MINI Airstream, the Speedster, the R60 plus quite a bit more. It was great to have him on this week!
For those of you heading to the Dragon this weekend, have fun and be safe! If you missed it, check out MINIsontheDragon.com for all of the info. Watch for new badges from Motoringbadges coming very soon too.
Are you getting a MINI E? Let us know! We would like to talk to you about the process and the car. Also, if you are planning on going to MINI United this year, chime in below. We have something cool planned for Woofcast 300 while we are there.
Of course we talk about the news from Motoringfile. And we talk about what happened to Woofcast 291. And some information about a few events you might have heard of including The Dragon, MINs in the Mountains and a little event happening in England.
I am looking for tips, tricks or any information you might have concerning my upcoming suspension rebuild. I’ve picked the Alta Rear Sway Bar, Koni Shocks and Eibach Springs (since I already have them). I will probably be replacing the front ball joints myself as well. Any feedback would be appreciated.

The Story of Woofcast #291
Once upon a time, in a desert far far away, there was a MINI Cooper event called AMVIV. And it was good.
Todd and I were there. You saw the photos and the video, right? I mean, we were in Vegas for the whole weekend. Heck, we even did a live show. And that show is the missing Woofcast; number two hundred ninety one. Performed live in front of about 12 people.
A show that Todd and Sherwin both recorded. One via audio, one via video. Great.
Or, maybe not. Todd’s MacBook was unruly that day and produced a recording that sounded like it was filtered through steel wool and crushed brick. When checking the audio from Sherwins camera, it sounded like we woke up after a night of cigar smoking and gargled with coal and razor blades.
To make matters worse, we couldn’t get our schedules together last week to do a show.
I have looked at most of the video and there is some there that’s not horrible that I will be uploading to WhiteRoof.tv later in the week.
We will be recording a show this week for sure. It’s looking like Saturday and I’ll try to talk Todd into letting us do it live.
Don’t worry, you can still go over to Motoringfile and catch up on the news, or go through the Archives here. MINI United is coming up, now would be a good time to listen to episodes from ’07 you might have missed.
AMVIV 6 – The Banquet

Plus a quick AMVIV wrap-up.
But what about Woof291? You see, we recorded it live from Vegas. But, if I’m honest, it’s listenable. Not to worry because we did capture it on video. You don’t care about the video, but the audio is awesome and I will be posting that this coming weekend.
