White Roof Radio #520

Regular service has resumed. Joined by Todd, Chad and Alex “The New Guy” Sitbon (read his F56/#mtts2014 review on MotoringFile). We recap MINI Takes the States, the F56, Todd’s morning jokes and a few other things that we side track onto. It’s nice to be back!

    Where can I get the shirt that Todd is wearing?

    • donburnside

      Pretty sure he made it custom or had it made.

    You forgot to talk about the EPA hold issue with the 2015 f56.

      Interesting how disappointed the WRR folks were in the mileage they saw on the road vs the advertised figures. Yes, new car, lead foot, etc… still, with the mileage figures disappearing from MINI’s website, one has to wonder if it’s related.

        I wouldn’t be surprised if the mpg numbers disappearing from MINI USA’s website is related to the EPA issue.

      We actually didn’t :) We briefly talk about it on the next show, but to be honest there isn’t much to share beside what we already said on MF and previous episodes/interviews of WRR.

    So no word on when the switch to 9speed auto is going to be phased in yet eh?

    • http://www.issigonized.com Alexandre Sitbon

      Nope.
