This week, join Todd & I as we talk about hauling things in the roadster, the perils of owning a pickup truck and electric cars. And the fact that it’s been a month since our last show. That has been corrected and will be back on track, starting today! We also throw a shout-out to our man Mr. Benham, who is back at MINI of Ontatio! If you are in SoCal, go over and say hi!
A couple of stories that hit our radar recently.
Did you listen to the end? Did you hear the awesome deal Todd has worked out for you guys at MotoringStripes.com? Free shipping and discounts too! Listen for those discount codes! Don’t forget about the other sponsors under the White Roof either. CravenSpeed just fired up their blog to let you know what’s been going on there and OutMotoring is still the place to go for everything you need or want for your MINI!
We are looking for all the feedback this week. You can click back over and leave a note in the shownotes!

The Ask Chad, kind of, show. Since Hank is in need of a battery, Chad helps us out with all of the information you could need about replacing your battery in a 2nd or 3rd generation MINI Cooper. We get through that and move on to news like BMW getting into the ride share game, talking about city bikes like we do on Ride Bikes Radio, which leads us into a discussion about ride sharing vs driving. There will be a post at dbmini this week about bikes and MINIs too.
Remember, don’t be that guy. The guy that asks about #MTTS2018 graphics days before the event. Don’t be that guy that doesn’t know where you send people to get them either! Click that link to check out MotoringStripes to get all your #MTTS2018 graphics and your customer Rally Decals! Do not delay! And you guys have been checking out Cravenspeed, OutMotoring and MNIdoMore, right? Besides our fine Black Roof Radio club members, it’s our sponsors that keep us running, keep us growing and help to keep us awesome! Check them out, won’t you?
Starting off with a reminder: Do as we do, not as Gabe says. And, watch some brake check videos if you are looking for some entertainment.
Going old school this week. Just Gabe, Todd and I and of course we start talking about the weather, winter tires and Gabe fawning over the MF Clubman. Otherwise, we talk LCI updates, sales and events coming up this year.
Don’t be the guy that doesn’t know where to get #mtts2018 graphics. Todd already has you covered over at MotoringStripes. Get them now and tell your friends! Then, post a photo and be sure to tag @whiteroofradio and @toddsmods!
If I can be honest, I would like nothing more than to make this my full time job. Not just White Roof Radio, but to really grow White Roof Media into a decent podcast network talking about cars, bicycles and a few other things I have up my sleeve. Every bit of support you can continue to provide would be amazing. You can join the Black Roof Radio club, you can continue to help spread the word about us (don’t forget Ride Bikes Radio) and leaving good reviews and comments on our iTunes page. Every little bit helps and I appreciate it more than you can possibly know.
Stay tuned for more goodness under the White Roof. Along with Fireball Tim, The Hollywood Car show will be making it’s triumphant return early February. Stay tuned!
Last show of 2017! Full crew for you guys this week too. We get Gabe to tell us all about the Countryman PHEV and a few other thoughts comparing it to the (what else) Clubman. We do a Craigslist challenge in which Brian won with an electric Sentra, we laughed alot, told many jokes and Gabe was an astute professional.
There is still a little bit of time to get over to one of the fine sponsors under the White Roof! CravenSpeed, OutMotoring, Detroit Tuned and Motoring Stripes. HURRY! And are you tired of not getting Black Roof Radio? You can join the club at Patreon!
From the entire WRR Crew, we hope you have a great holiday and new year!
A bit late getting this to you guys, but in this episode we have Todd battling Gabe about electric cars. Then, we move on to becoming the marketing dept. for MINIUSA. A note to the affliates, we do go a bit long this week. Part of our current frustration with the marketing was kicked off with this video.

Todd, Chad and Gabe tonight. Sure, I’m there too, but here’s the thing. Had some technical issues while recording last week where my side did actually get recorded. You probably won’t notice too much, but then again, you might. Call it the Mad Libs edition of White Roof Radio. Apologies in advance.
It’s Christmas time (or your holiday of choice), and you want to make sure to get something cool for that MINI enthusiast in your life! Don’t forget the fine sponsors under the White Roof: OutMotoring, CravenSpeed, MotoringStripes and Detroit Tuned.
What started as a short show to catch up with Brian about his trip to Germany for a special event held for MINI and BMW Genius’, turned into another rousing edition of White Roof Radio! Todd admits that the JCW Clubman isn’t as bad as he initially thought, at least on the track, Brian does let us know everything (he could) that he learned from his trip to Munich, and Gabe gets really riled up about Apple Car Play and his un-realistic expectations of it.
Todd is off to SEMA next week. If you are in Vegas, there is cool stuff happening just outside sponsored by MINI and BMW that you should check out. If you are going to SEMA, be sure to look for Todd!
