Fri, 21 Apr 2017 21:03:32 +0000

Let's start this episode with some questionably helpful PSAs. Very questionable. Then, it's a few news stories, including the Classic Mini, remastered by David Brown Automotive. This link will give you some cool time wasting to be sure. Plus we also take a look at possible LCI changes on the F56, but we are skeptical. Finally, the good reverend lays down some knowledge about MINI values and part prices, plus we pick the MINI we would buy with a limited budget. Don't forget the fine sponsors we have under the white roof, including our newest sponsor; HIDextra. Check them out to view the best in HID and LED headlight conversion kits and accessories for your MINI and just about every car make!

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 14:00:00 +0000

Woofcast 618: Alligator Seawolf In this episode, named after our man Alex based on his Hammer & Coop name. We spend some time talking about that, of course, along with some other examples of the great, and so not great, work of BSSP. Of course this came up because the marketing shake-up at MINIUSA continues. Gabe joins us for some real in-depth information that you are sure to enjoy. We did run a bit long this week. Too long to add the interview with Luis Perocarpi, owner of Lap Motorsports. Watch for that early next week to show up in your feed. It was really fun to meet him and talk to him about the races at Daytona, Sebring and the upcoming race at Circuit of the Americas. Plus some cool rally stuff that he is doing this week in a lifted R60 Countryman! I lied about this week's show image. I was going to be a cool shot of a classic Mini with a VTEC engine uploaded to our Patreon Community by Mr. Roberts. Instead, it's the F60 with bicycles on the roof submitted by our man Brian Dallas. He uploaded this to our facebook page and now it's the album art for this week's show. Want us to feature a photo of your MINI? All you have to do is upload it to our Facebook page or do an '@' reply to @whiteroofradio on Twitter or Instagram. You can also upload it to the Patreon page. It's not a competition gang, I will pick the one I like best and boom!

Woofcast #604: Old Dudes in Lamborghinis

Wed, 31 Aug 2016 04:35:30 +0000

We get an update on what ride Chad took to the Woodward Dream Cruise. Really though, the big deal is that Chad actually closed on a brand new building for Detroit Tuned! Watch for more details to follow very soon, probabaly on the DT Facebook Page, so stay tuned! Once we do get started, we direct you to the MotoringFile X1 Review. TL/DR; Gabe doesn't fancy it, mostly because it looks like everything else on the road. For you Clubman owners, watch for an upcoming recall very soon. It seems like a minor issue that is hopefully a simple fix. We also have information on updated oil specifications for all MINIs. Finally, some information about MINI Connected. Once done with news, and a reminder to visit to check out the new site, I had the chance to drive a Mazda MX-5 last week and the boys let me talk about it. I have only one word; small. Too bad because it was pretty brilliant otherwise. Still, I'd rather have a MINI Cooper Roadster for many reasons. Listen for those. Thanks to Leopold, aka Philip the VW Tech, for this week's show art! I asked for you guys to upload photos of you MINI to our Facebook page, or to tag us on Instagram or Twitter. If you do that, your MINI will be featured! Don't make me keep using press photos, those are boring. Get to sharing those photos gang! Download|WRR @ iTunes | Show Notes(image)

We'll get him back soon to give us more detail.
