White Roof Radio #521

MotoringFile Sections: Podcast Sep 3rd, 2014 3 Comments

News from Motoringfile, a little Shuttlecast, a little weather, some Waze bashing and what we think about the MotoringTag game, plus a whole bunch more! Like the car above. Awesome, right? Not so much with number 20 in the list. That’s a face only a mother could love. Maybe.

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!

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.

Q&A with MINI USA Product Manager Chris Potgieter

MotoringFile Sections: Diesel, F55 Five Door Hatch, F56 Hatch, JCW, Podcast Aug 13th, 2014 15 Comments

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 →

Last night Todd and I attended the kick-off party at MINI of San Francisco, which was amazing! We walked around and talked to a few people that were there, listen in below.

White Roof Radio #513

MotoringFile Sections: Podcast Jun 10th, 2014 1 Comment

lego mini

Last week, it was the SuperLaggera. This week we are all about the 5-door, Lego and fish sandwiches. Before all of that, we do start with a little Shuttlecast since the Mac Developer Conference was last week. But after that, we get right to #mtts2014 and news from MotoringFile.com.

You heard correctly, during MTTS, it will be “Mornings with White Roof Radio” all the way from San Fransisco to Boston. If you are interested in being part of the WRR Road crew, there is still an opening or two available, even if you aren’t going all the way. We would love to have you part of the team! Email us if you are interested.
