Joined by Mr. Bridger from MotoringFile this week and we starting talking about the new Signature Line and pretty much go everywhere from there. After losing Gabe, we talk about the mess that is MINIUSA’s marketing vs. What The Dealers are doing. And I log into the Owners Lounge.
Are you a Patron yet? If not, you missed a Black Roof Radio exclusive from Chad. You will hear about it in about 2-3 weeks otherwise. Membership has it’s privledges.
And, a HUGE thank you to everyone that is checking out Ride Bikes Radio with Brian and I. We are having a great time making that show! It’s nice that you agree!
Just Todd and I tonight, talking about his tire and wheel problem and remembering White Roof Radio hosts of old. Good times! Then, how about those Lap Motor Sports guys with the 1-2-5 win at Watkins Glen! Then, it’s sales, again, and how we think they fit in with the latest JD Power Survey results. We have some interesting thoughts on this. What do you think? Comments are open!
Also, for you Patrons, there is a brand new Black Roof Radio up. Plenty of inside baseball there this week too. Want in? Just click over and kick in a buck per show (or less!) to be a part of the Club!
Here we are, back again talking about weather, politics and MINIs. And Apple Stuff (especially on Black Roof Radio). And Roadsters. And JCW Clubman. And Hootie and the Blowfish. Just another fantastic episode of White Roof Radio for you guys that we think you will really like!
Don’t forget the sponsors under the White Roof; our boys over at Cravenspeed and OutMotoring will get you taken care of with anything you need for your MINI, Buick or Aston Martin!
This week’s album art provide by Mr. Uk Phil. He tagged us over at Instagram and #boom! If you want to see your MINI as album art, just tag us on Instagram or Twitter, upload to our Facebook page or to the Patreon community and it could happen.
First up, I want to start by apologizing for the extra echo this week. Secondly, please check back for the show notes.
Gabe joins us this week to talk about the new JCW Clubman, which is the MotoringFile company car for the next year. We also discuss the possibility of Frank Stephenson returning to head up MINI design. You would think that would be enough, but NO! We talk about the issues that Alex had with his tires, driving an automatic roadster across the desert and the difference graphics make on a MINI. Big show this week that we think you will like.
Otherwise we are back from AMVIV and expect regular service to resume. That means if you want to have an image of your MINI featured as the album art for a show, do an ‘@’ reply to us on Instagram or Twitter (we are @whiteroofradio on both), upload it to the Facebook page or, if you are part of the Patreon Community, you can upload it there too!
Gabe is offended, still loves the Clubman and we call him on it and then give him the time to explain himself. I am pretty sure he did a good job of it. Alex had the chance to drive Todd’s race car and roadster, plus a bunch of other cars, and I ask the boys to buy a MINI with only $8kUS to spend, which brought us our first mention of the Clubvan for 2017. Sure, we go long this week, but it’s a really great show. Oh yea, read about the $50K mini van here.
AMVIV updates this week too. If you are interested, and you should be, Mike Marzo will be coding MINIs at the event. Get over to the vendor page to send him an email to ask questions about what he can do and what it will cost. Trust us, he can do some cool stuff. Also, Todd still has spots for graphic installs, hit him up to book your time and discuss options. If you are going, you will also be seeing me, db, emcee the pool party! It’s going to be a great time and we hope to see you all there!

Let’s start this episode with some questionably helpful PSAs. Very questionable. Then, it’s a few news stories, including the Classic Mini, remastered by David Brown Automotive. This link will give you some cool time wasting to be sure. Plus we also take a look at possible LCI changes on the F56, but we are skeptical. Finally, the good reverend lays down some knowledge about MINI values and part prices, plus we pick the MINI we would buy with a limited budget.
Don’t forget the fine sponsors we have under the white roof, including our newest sponsor; HIDextra. Check them out to view the best in HID and LED headlight conversion kits and accessories for your MINI and just about every car make!

We did have some issues with Black Roof this week if you are looking for it. It’s a nerd thing problem that I couldn’t resolve. I’ll be getting something up for you guys as soon as possible!
