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.
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!
Very oddly shaped show for you guys this week. Todd took the helm 100% this week, with Chad and AJ. Skipping news this week, they spent some time talking about driving MINIs, fast, in a controlled environment. AJ was on the west coast at the BMW Driving Center in Palm Springs, Todd did a Miles Ahead event in Kansas City and Chad even took the DT Mule out for some track time. Plus Todd fills us in on why he doesn’t really like the Clubman.
Your patience lately has been appreciated! We have all been having crazy schedules and whatnot, keeping us for making a show for you on a consistent basis. I am working on getting us back on track and expect that to happen with the next episode!
Finally a new show for you guys! Apologies for the delay. If you were a memeber of the The Club you would have had this earlier this week plus you get access to Black Roof Radio, giving you an extra 2 shows a month!
Moving on, we spend this week getting caught up. #MTTS2018 details, JCW GP details (hint:HUGE HORSEPOWER, no AWD), an new Marketing firm for MINIUSA and more.
Don't forget the fine sponsors here under the White Roof either! OutMotoring.com and CravenSpeed. If you need something for you or your MINI, these are the guys that are going to hook you up!
With the announcement of the MINI Electric concept this week, our Slack channel was blowing up, so we figured we had better get that on wax before we lost it! We talk about the design of the concept and our thoughts about it and electric cars overall.
Then, because most of the time we can’t help ourselves, we started in on marketing and how we think it’s pretty ridiculous lately and not doing much to help sell cars. What do you think? Comments are open! But, seriously, talk about bad photoshop work. Look at the shadows in this week’s show image. The light is coming from 3 suns, like we are on Alderon! Speaking of, did you hear about the Lego Millennium Falcon? 7500+ pieces and an $800 price tag.
It’s that crazy slow time of the year where nothing is really happening anywhere due to back to school. Still, we solidier on and talk about flight delays, throttle response in a Ferrari vs. a MINI, and RAV4s jumping over a draw bridge in New Jersey. We also talk about MINIs and some BMW stuff from BimmerFile too!
Plus a host of other topics this week. We were a bit all over the place as we like to do sometimes. If you missed it, there was a new episode of Black Roof Radio posted earlier this week. You can join the club and get access to those episodes plus early access to all shows over at the Patreon Clubhouse.
FINALLY a new show for you guys! Full crew, almost, an a long show too! Chad updates us about MINIs on the Mack and what’s happening at Detroit Tuned (hint: blue mohawk) before we get into the news. Gabe continues to profess his love for the JCW Clubman, while agreeing that the Countryman is good too. And then well all tell him he is wrong about the new MINI package that is supposed to look like Gulf livery. It just doesn’t, but it’s good on MINI to give us a car that isn’t black, grey, white, gray or black.
As of this posting, we have entered our 13th year of podcasting! And, as Todd likes to say, we don’t hate each other yet! Thanks to all of you, old timers and n00bs alike, for checking us out, subscribing, sharing it with your friends and leaving us nice reviews on our iTunes page. I couldn’t do it without the guys and we wouldn’t do it if it wasn’t for you guys. THANKS!
