White Roof Radio: MTTS2014 Final

MotoringFile Sections: Podcast Aug 19th, 2014 6 Comments

mtts

We interview an owner that joined us in Cleveland, our girl Eileen (one of the people behind the awesome #mtts2014 photos in the Instagram feed and our prize maven) at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The tables are turned on us, kinda, by Des, the voice of MTTS. Finally, moving on to the last night at Boston Harbor wrap party with Gabe and the newest member of the team, Yelp savant Alex!

I’ll be sharing some videos with you guys this week to keep that #mtts2014 buzz going just a little bit longer. Otherwise, normal service resumes next week. You know we will be talking about the F56 (Cooper and Cooper S AND JCW), the JCW Coupe and more about our experience from MTTS2014. Watch for it.

Chris_Potgieter

During #mtts2014, we were able to speak with Chris Potgieter, MINIUSA Product Manager about questions that were submitted to Motoringfile as well as a few we had. As always, Chris was very forthcoming with details that he knew about and could speak about.

That includes:

  • Details on the forthcoming JCW exterior package (and the return of Chili Red)
  • Other JCW accessories and even info on the new tuning kit
  • A mention of touch-screens in future MINIs? It’s in there – not sure what it really means
  • Hints at forthcoming CarPlay integration
  • Update on new options available for 2015
  • Diesel updates
  • Timing on the F55 four door in the US

It’s worth listening to the entire thing after the break. continued →
