White Roof Radio #408

Gabe, Todd, Chad and db doing what they do best; Talking about Cadillacs. And MINIs, especially our favorite The Clubman. We all really like it quite a bit, especially in Hampton trim as Gabe caught view of last week.

Also welcome Otto’s MINI of Exton to the sponsor roster. Thank them further by making plans to visit on Friday, January 13th 2012 as they celebrate their grand opening in this new location! If you are looking for even more of a reason to hang out a brand new MINI dealership, Todd and I will be there all day! Doing what we do and sharing with the rest of the MINI Community. Hope to see as many of you as possible, especially between 6:00p and 8:00p. We’re told that’s when the party will be happening!

One more show before the new year and we are going to try to do it live. Follow along on the Twitter for more details.

    Man, talk about your thinly veiled shill to clear the lots of Clubman before the R55 is discontinued. It was giving me deja vu of the 6 series intro over at BimmerFile. At least you guys made it funny, but I’m still trying to wash the taste out of my mouth…

      I just liked the Clubman I saw… Nothing more than that.

    • Ulrich Diederich

      I agree actually. The Clubman has never been on my list until I saw a Silver/White special edition Cooper with the black bullet wheels. Pretty sweet.

    I’ve never seen that “high class grey” in person. Is it blue? Purple? Black? Or what? In the configurator it looks purple.. in the header image it looks blue. And you say it looks black. Gah!

    Ottos has always been good to us. We just picked up our third this week, a ’12 CM4. We love it!

  • Ulrich Diederich

    Pretty shocked about the comment that BMW is supposedly telling Mini dealers that most “die-hard” Mini fans will not like the new F56 hatch. I assume that means the car will be bigger and more “refined”, in other words they are going for more market share and away from the enthusiast market.

    • http://BimmerFile.com Gabriel Bridger

      No it’s the styling they’re referring to.

      • Ulrich Diederich

        Yeah, I’ve read the threads about creases in the door and the drop down detail in the roof like the Countryman. I was hoping we could go back to simple, but I guess I sound like those BMW guys who wish the E30 M3 was still available. Might have to look at the 500 Abarth.
