MTTS2014: Final

mtts

We interview an owner that joined us in Cleveland, our girl Eileen (one of the people behind the awesome #mtts2014 photos in the Instagram feed and our prize maven) at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The tables are turned on us, kinda, by Des, the voice of MTTS. Finally, moving on to the last night at Boston Harbor wrap party with Gabe and the newest member of the team, Yelp savant Alex!

I’ll be sharing some videos with you guys this week to keep that #mtts2014 buzz going just a little bit longer. Otherwise, normal service resumes next week. You know we will be talking about the F56 (Cooper and Cooper S AND JCW), the JCW Coupe and more about our experience from MTTS2014. Watch for it.

Q&A with MINIUSA Product Manager Chris Potgieter

During #mtts2014, we were able to speak with Chris Potgieter, MINIUSA Product Manager about questions that were submitted to Motoringfile as well as a few we had. As always, Chris was very forthcoming with details that he knew about and could speak about.

That includes:

  • Details on the forthcoming JCW exterior package (and the return of Chili Red)
  • Other JCW accessories and even info on the new tuning kit
  • A mention of touch-screens in future MINIs? It’s in there – not sure what it really means
  • Hints at forthcoming CarPlay integration
  • Update on new options available for 2015
  • Diesel updates
  • Timing on the F55 four door in the US

Last show before #mtts2014 starts this coming Saturday and we are excited! First we have to do news from MotoringFile.com, I provide an update with the broken things on my MINI and the car we will be driving for the next 2 weeks. Sound off in the comments if you have already built your Lego Mini! High five if you got it as a gift and didn’t have to pay ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS for it. Good grief.

For after MTTS, I’m thinking about starting a pool for when Roxy hits 300K miles. I think I can narrow it down to a 2 week period. Any takers?

Don’t forget to come find us this weekend in San Fransisco! MINI Takes the States 2014 is ON. East bound and down baby.
