iPhone iPhone iPhone. Automatic transmissions. News from MotoringFile.com and Ask Chad. Yep, 1 complete episode of White Roof Radio for you.
Full notes to follow in the morning.
Audio warning; my mic might have been a little hot for a good portion of this show. All apologies.
After some pimping, talking about music and reminding you about the Outmotoring.com June special (watch for a review of the Light Bracket in the near future), we get into news from MotoringFile like we like to do. And yes, Chad leaves his air compressor on during the show.
After news, we get into a couple of Ask Chad questions. Keep those coming in gang! Also, as mentioned, here is the link to JP’s M7 issues. And, jump over to MotoringAlliance.com to discuss The Sprint Booster. What are your experiences with it? Let us know on the boards!
Don’t forget about the MINI of Ontario WC-50 Silent Auction coming up this Saturday at 10a. I’ll be there and hope to see a whole bunch of you, too!
And finally, in case you missed it, Todd and I were on the lastest Bimmercast talking about MINI vs. BMW. Go check it out.
Special Event: MINI of Ontario
Want a WC-50? Maybe spend the early afternoon playing a round of mini golf with some fellow MINI enthusiasts first? Followed by a carne asada BBQ? What are you doing on June 26th?
I know what I will be doing! I’m going to be at MINI of Ontario to enjoy the festivities of their special event centered around the rarest MINI of them all; the WC 50. Besides the mini golf and BBQ, MINI of Ontario will be auctioning off one of the prized JCW WC 50 MINIs. There aren’t many of them to go around, even on the west coast, so this will be a good way to try to get one and benefit the Loma Linda Ronald McDonald House at the same time!
Here’s the skinny. If you want to get in on the silent auction, give Dan the Sales Manager a call at 888-743-4041 and he will get you prequalified. Once that is done, you will get the chance to bid on the car. Here is the cool part.
A portion of the proceeds above the MSRP of the WC 50 will be going directly to the Loma Linda Ronald McDonald House. I’m not sure what portion, but knowing MINI of Ontario, it will be sizable!
If you want to get in on the MINI golf, email Katey West (firstname.lastname@example.org) to RSVP. Do that quick since there are only 50 spots. They are filling up fast!
Woofcast #341, this time with feeling
Cats? Yes, we seriously start off talking about cats. Fellas, who else among us has also been ‘left’ with a cat? How about a little bit of iPhone
talk bashing? Sure, we do that too. And we all have Schroth Harness going for wicked low pricing.
We finally get around to talking about MINI stuff like we like to do and to do that we jump over to MotoringFile and do exactly that, including our take on the MINI vs. Porsche Challenge happening on June 21st at Road Atlanta. And, since we got Gabe tonight, we get his take on all of the newest things, like the JCW changes coming up.
2nd half of the show was Gabe talking about the latest review MINI in the MF Garage, right after all of us beat him up for driving an X5 M, rolling in at $US92k+. Back us up ladies and gents! Back to the MINI, Gabe likes it, except the transmission, but you had to see that coming, right?

Alternately titled: Why we don’t do shows on Sunday afternoon after having long weeks, bad weeks or after crawling out from under a MINI while in the process of rebuilding it.
That said, here is a shorty for you this week. News from MotoringFile.com like we like to do, and talks of the FrankenMINI Chad has been working on. Not to mention, we are pretty sure we are upsetting MA’s every time we ask/talk about waiting for the refresh. Are you one that is waiting? Let us know in the comments or phone it in to the voicemail line!
Finally, keep an eye out for more MTTS details this week! We are expecting to get the bulk of the details that you guys and gals are looking for soon and you know you will read it about it here and on MotoringFile first, right? And, if you are a club and trying to make something happen for MTTS, let us know and we will share that with the right people ASAP.
