Woofcast #542: The Turbo Nipple

MotoringFile Sections: Podcast Mar 3rd, 2015 No Comments

Clubman_Vision_concept_GT6_873Joined 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!

Woofcast #542 – Live

MotoringFile Sections: Podcast Mar 1st, 2015 No Comments

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!

We’ll see you Sunday!

Woofcast #539: Thirteen Dollars and Fifty Cents, Plus Tax

MotoringFile Sections: Podcast Feb 10th, 2015 No Comments

MF_garage_F56_1554Db 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!

Once I was done typing the word and, we got started with news from the week from MotoringFile, including out thoughts about the odd things that are falling through the cracks at MINI. Finish up with some rousing Ask Chad and I talk more about the R56 and we have ourselves a show.

MF Interview: MINI USA VP David Duncan & Product Manager Chris Potgieter

MotoringFile Sections: Ask MotoringFile, JCW, NAIAS, Podcast Feb 2nd, 2015 18 Comments

2015-01-12 02.04.13It took us some time, but our interview with David Duncan and Chris Potgieter is finally available! One quick disclaimer before you listen. Because the new JCW was the focus of this year’s NAIAS, we didn’t have a chance to ask all the questions that were submitted on MotoringFile. We are truly sorry for that, but rest assured that these questions are not lost, and we will do our best to answer them in the coming months. There’s also some bonus content at the end of the recording for any BMW fans out there. Enjoy!
