We start out with some event reminders to keep you guys in the loop. If you are one that is going to be attending AMVIV, you should be getting registered at The Silverton sooner rather than later. They were already at 75% capacity on the room rate last week. While you are there, you should also register for the event.
Followed by news from MotoringFile.com, including this post by Alex last week. We would be curious to know what your thoughts are on how MINI could innovate within the automotive industry. What do you think? Click over and leave a comment!
For those of you in Philly, please take care of Todd and Alex this weekend and know that I am seriously bummed that I’m missing it!
Friend of MotoringFile and White Roof Radio co-host Todd Pearson is possibly on the hunt for a new MINI. It took some time to get him there as he was originally seduced by the dark side, and the idea of owning a Range Rover Evoque. While he is coming to his senses, there’s still great hesitation in him in regards to the car or MINI he should buy next. Bear in mind that he owns a GP1 – a car he will most likely keep whatever happens – and that his better-half drives a 2014 F56 Cooper. To help our friend make up his mind, we’ve decided to crowdsource to the MotoringFile audience his choice of vehicle and options (e.g. Todd wonders if H/K is a must). Not that he will strictly follow the final results of this poll, but we believe it is still a fun exercise to go through. With that in mind, let’s get him into the right car! continued →
Guests are back! This week, Shawn Myers and Charlie Volgelheim from the Motor Trend Podcast join us to talk about MINIs. If you haven’t subscribed to their show, you really should, especially for their award-winning episode from MTTS (Episode #016).
Joined by Gabe yet again for a rousing rendition of The World Famous White Roof Radio. We cover news of the week from MotoringFile as usual, including small wheels and the state of in car infotainment systems. Should we keep apologizing for auto makers or is it time for them to realize that they can’t do tech? Sound off in the comments below!
Did you catch the new sponsor MotoringStripes? Todd will sell you his world famous stripes that you can install on your MINI, no need for a graphics party! Be sure to check out the Countryman Boot Protector, a must have for you R60 owners. More designs coming very soon, so keep an eye on the site!
Joined by Mr. Gabe Bridger from MotoringFile this week and recorded live. Thanks to everyone for coming by to watch and listen! We covered news and whatever else came along. Plus, we let Gabe talk a bit about the new Company Car with its tiny wheels with Summer tires during a typical Chicago winter.
And you heard about a new sponsor under the White Roof. That would be MotoringStripes, where you can actually buy some of Todd’s stripes directly from the source. Be sure to get over there to check it out!
Join us, won’t you? Sunday, March 1st starting shortly after 6:00 PM Eastern time, we will be recording Woofcast 542, live! Db is going to warm up the chat room and everything. We’ll have you done in time for dinner, unless you decide to play the drinking game!
After you are done putting that into your calendar, you should check out the latest from our man Todd; MotoringStripes.com. That’s right, Todd is finally selling stripes directly to you. The good stuff, high quality 3M vinyl, custom fit to your MINI the way they should fit! And, don’t worry, more designs will start showing up very soon!
Db still doesn’t think the diesel is coming and other news from MotoringFile.com start us out this week. All of the news that is fit for us to talk about it. A little Ask Chad/Todd about graphics you will find useful. Alex recaps his trip to California and I talk a little more about the R56 heretofore known as Bruce.
Don’t forget any of the fine sponsors for your Valentine. Might we recommend a smart phone holder from Craven Speed (aka the ‘Squeezy Thing’) or perhaps some fine motoring gear from Outmotoring.com? Trust us, this stuff is Valentine’s Day gold, friends.
Finally, we are getting closer to our goal of $100 per episode at Patreon. We really appreciate the support! We’re going to have rewards for those that have already contributed very soon along with rewards for future Patrons. Remember, when we hit $100, Todd is going to make it rain! Rain butter, baby!
