Contacting and Contributing to MotoringFile

We get a ton of email daily at MotoringFile with Matt handling technical questions while I try to tackle the rest. And as you can expect much of what we get we simply don't have time to answer. It's been even worse over the past month as I've been in the middle of moving and both of us have been incredibly busy with work. So accept our apologies if you don't hear back from us on a question you might have. If it's a general question on the MINI or related accessories you may want to try forum sites (MotoringFile isn't really a forum afterall) like MINI2 or North American Motoring.

We'd also like to give a big thanks to all of you who have contributed, in one way or another, over the past couple years. We try to send a thank you to everyone who does but from time to time we forget. So for all those that have contributed and haven't heard it before… thank you! You're an important reason that this site is one of the biggest MINI news sources in the world.

    Do you have any pricing info on the new JCW exterior/interior accessories (i.e Carbon Fiber baubles and bolt-ons)? I stopped by my dealer and they had nothing!

    Well Gabe, I guess this post didn't have the result you hoped for ;)

  • Heather

    Gabe and Matt – you have produced a very valuable site as well as a visually pleasing site. Those two usually don't fit together in many sites I've seen.

    Great job and keep up the good work.

    i've gotten to the point where i open up motoringfile before i open up my morning newspaper. this site is like USA Today for MINI's, great work guys!

  • Paul Winge

    Thanks to both of you for a very good informative site. I'm sure it's a lot of work, but I for one appreciate all you do.

  • Vanwall

    Say, do you guys know when the model change-over started using left-handed gzortinblats and inverse etaoin shrdlus? Is MINI planning on potrezebies, or shundersons? Hey, and while your at it, what was Ty Cobb's lifetime batting average? Oh, yeah, there are other FORUMS fer that stuff. Geez.

    Thanks for your neverending efforts to produce such a fun MINI site! I visit here prolly more than anywhere else. Wonderful design and chock fulla info – how DO get that inside stuff anyhow? Besides, you bandy about my maunderings on occaison, thanks. I'll try to keep the irrelevance to a minimum, and you chaps keep up the good work, wot?

    P.S. However, I do know what's the difference between a duck. One of its legs is both the same. (Thanks, Groucho!)

  • http://www.gbmini.net Ian C.

    Well OK … since you asked and no-one else answered: His .367 lifetime batting average ;)

    Well said Rob. Your thoughts are always a welcome addition!
