The first Woof of the new year and we are covering, among other things, news of the last two weeks from Motoringfile. Lots of good stuff there if you aren’t already, you should be reading it every day. The best way to get all of the Motoringfile (and Whiteroofradio too!) is to subscribe.
Hopefully everyone had a great holiday and a safe new years. Thanks for sticking around for the year and into the new one. We’ve got some really cool stuff planned for ’07 and will be taking WRR everywhere this year. Watch for us at AMVIV, MoTD and who knows where else. And, thanks to everyone who sent in the Apple purchasing tips! They are much appreciated.

Gabe covers his interest BMW vs. MINI JCW GP comparison and we talk about mixed nuts, the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald again, more about the upcoming events we will be attending and listener voicemails.
Again, don’t forget about the new linkage at the top of the page. All kinds of good stuff there. Hopefully those will help db in his quest to triple the number of WRR listeners.

We start the week with some good old fashioned IE bashing. We also spent quite a bit of time talking about the Apple iPhone (or whatever it will be called) but you will have to check back later in the week to hear that.
Plus, news of the week from Motoringfile.
Tune in tomorrow as we spend some time talking about the MINIUSA Motorby program and get the low-down about AMVIV from Andrew ‘Agro’ Ross.

Starting off with some pigskin talk. Keeping these guys on track sometimes is really a chore! Turns out Gabe gets to drive the R56 Superbowl weekend, so Todd and I were telling him how best to proceed. Also, we do go long tonight with the interview.
Tonight we interviewed Andrew ‘Agro’ Ross about the upcoming AMVIV IV, but first, we spent some time talking about the Motorby pilot program, previously reported over at Motoringfile and picked up by every automotive web site as well as SlashDot.
A few quick notes about run-flat tires too.
All of the MINI OEM wheels will take a non-runflat tire
Non-run flat tires WILL improve your ride quality if you have an R50 or R53
Non-run flat tires WILL change the handling characteristics of your MINI
Non-run flat tires are cheaper than run-flats
Non-run flat tires won’t run flat. You will need a kit (slime, air pump), a cell phone, a AAA card or all three.
WRR Listener AGrainger has put together a great list of supplies that he carries with him over at this NAM thread. I think you might find the list a little big, but you will get some great ideas from it. Thanks Aaron!

We start by answering some questions sent in via email from what I think is our only Zune listener. He asked about the MCAW Auto-Up circuit, the Aux Port adapter and Euro Parcel shelf. Of course, if you use any of these, please feel free to share your experiences with them in the comments below! There is a website too that lists all of the recalls for BMW and MINI. I have lost the address but I will hunt through my history and try to find it. You should also be able to get that from your Service Advisor, bribing tips included.
Oh yea, Randy Webb. Takes a break from flying to sit in on the news with us tonight. We do go long but we spent a lot of time on the news with the new R56 pictures posted this week and we spent some time talking about the upcoming release of the BMW 1 Series in the US.
Be sure to check in tomorrow when we actually get to ask Randy where the hell he has been, what’s going on with Webb Motorsports and what’s coming up in the future. You are going to want to check this out for sure!

Or the “where the hell has Randy been show”.
WARNING…this episode wasn’t edited as much as others. There might be parts here that will make your fellow cube dwellers look over at you to see what you are looking at. No f bombs or anything, but when you start talking about the H2, things can get silly.
We turn Randy loose on the mic to fill us in on what he has been up to and squash some rumors. No, he hasn’t been fixing Hummers or running the shop at a go fast ranch.
He also revisits our weekend in St. Louis, when Todd let his car be transformed into the Mule v2.0 and throws out big thanks to EVERYONE that helped Randy finish the NAMCC season last year.
Watch for changes upcoming at Webb Motorsports. Like a brand new chatroom and new monthly podcast! And don’t forget the best way to get ahold of Randy is via email. That’s randy (at) webbmotorsports (dot) com. It’s also all over the site as well.

Watch out! We started with weather and a little Super Bowl talk. Imagine a little Gabe doing the Super Bowl shuffle. How cute.
db talks about his MINI week getting tires. Kumho Ecsta ASX instead of the SPTs. Watch for a review to follow. Did you read about the new scented tire from Kumho? Colored smoke, sure. But scented?
If you are one that is looking for an easy way to manage the older shows that aren’t included in the feed? Definitely listen in.
Plus, news of the week from Motoringfile. Including more talk on the 1 Series (yes, again) (yes I did, in fact, roll my eyes).

A short one for you tonight. We do a bit of rumor squashing, some updates to MINI stuff around the web and some basic rambling on and on about whatever we can think of.
Looking for pictures or a way to show your pictures off? Check out Flickr, or if you are a member there already, be sure to check out the MF Flickr Group.
Delicious? Actually it’s del.icio.us which is a social bookmarking site. You can check out db’s here.
Keep a watch out for Brad Day’s upcoming audio review of the Zune. I would expect to have that ready by the middle of February.
If you are a fan of Robert in Toronto’s work, he has started his own podcast! He goes to a lot of movies with his wife, so they are reviewing them in his MINI! You can check it out over at his site or here at iTunes.
And, if you are looking for some great info on Cruising, be sure to check out My Cruise Planner, run by Michael and Patricia Babishkin. They have a great podcast too! You can find them at iTunes here.
Finally, this just in, but we will have Phil Wicks from the NAMCC on next week! Should be great.

We start by re-introducing ourselves to you out there that are new to the woofcast. Can you believe we are all or were Club Presidents? Crazy, I know. We are also huge proponents of the track day! One of the best mods you can make to your car is to tighten up the nut behind the wheel.
It’s official…Mr. Gabriel Bridger will be joining us at AMVIV this year! If you didn’t get a room yet, the discounted room rate is no longer available, but there are still room available. You can get all of the info you need over at AMVIV.com. With Gabe coming to Vegas, it will mark the first time that I have met Gabe and the first time that all 3 of us have been in the same place at the same time. As Gabe says, it should be off the hook.
Oh yea, Todd’s doing graphic installs. Email him to save a spot. And he knows he needs to blog more.
And news of the week.
Check back tomorrow to listen in as Todd and I interviewed Phil Wicks about the last season and upcoming season for the NAMCC, plus some very cool things coming in the future.

Really, we aren’t pirates, but db does have a face for podcasting.
More additions to the drinking game coming soon. Won’t that just be fantastic!
Plus news of the week. Yes, that was db that thinks the JCW car shouldn’t come with the automatic transmission. Target those comments accordingly. Oh yea, db will be picking 1 or 2 random comments per month and throwing down free swag. You can’t win if you don’t play!
If you are going to AMVIV, leave us a message below to let us know! And, if you haven’t already, now would be a great time to add yourself to the WRR Frappr Map. Try saying that 3 times fast, its fun!

Before I begin, please ignore the mismatched show numbers. Pretty please?
Robert in Toronto joined us this week since Mr. Bridger was out for a little birthday celebration. So of course we have to spend some time talking about Canadian stuff to make him feel more at home. So, like, take off eh?
We spend a bit more time talking about AMVIV too.
Oh yea, we even managed a bit of news from Motoringfile.
Robert is doing his own podcast now and you can check it out over at mobilemovie.podshow.com. It’s the Mobile Movie Minute. Part soundseeing tour, part movie review. Definitely worth checking out!

We go fairly long tonight getting caught up. But first, if you are going to AMVIV, be sure to download the event guide that Michael, Patricia and I did last week.
Who hates the JCW drilled rotors? Todd seems to think that everyone hates them.
So, I finally drove an R56 and we took quite a bit of time discussing the car, since we have all driven one. Yea, this car is all good in my opionion as long as the arches aren’t painted. I also give my reason why I think everyone thinks the interior looks cheap. Of course, we discussed it at length. By the end of it, Todd is still a hater while Gabe and myself still think it’s a pretty great car.
Plus the last 2 weeks of news, pretty much, from Motoringfile.
Don’t forget all 3 of us will be at AMVIV this year, starting Friday at the NAMCC out in Pahrump where Todd and I will be pulling PA duties. And if you haven’t registered yet, you need to do that by March 17th at amviv.com. Get on it!

Yes, they are not going to forget about the R53 anytime soon. In fact, they are just release their v2.0 stuff for the R53.
We get the lowdown from them on how to increase performance on the R56, including what is going to be the new ‘pulley’ for the newest MINI. Some great information! Definitely worth the listen.

Gabe’s NCAA picks, if you like that kind of thing.
If you get the chance, check out MINI2.co.za.
Longest MINI Convoy attempt if you like that kind of thing. Oh yea, you kinda have to be in the UK for it too. Todd thinks he’s already beat that number, but it wasn’t legit with the Guinness people.

Then, on to a bit of talk about AMVIV.
Then we talked about the future MINI models and all kinds of goodness after that.
AMVIV is this week! Watch for updates as fast as we can get them posted. I’m also going to try to get a twitter thing going over on the sidebar, so keep an eye out for that. Oh yea, keep an eye on the flickrs too, as I’m sure both myself and Gabe will be posting from our phones.

We start with odd noises we are hearing. db has crickets, Todd has a sump pump keeping his basement water free! Surprisingly enough, Gabe didn’t have any cock fighting sounds going on.
Who is listening to the MTTS coverage? We don’t mind, just curious is all. Speaking of which, Todd got some interview time with Trudy Hardy and Gina Koutros from MINIUSA about MINIUSAs plans for MINI United plus a special surprise that you are just going to have to listen for.
We’ve been playing with the new feature at Google maps.
If we do video from MINI United, would you rather those videos be in the feed or would you rather come back to the sites to check them out? Let us know in the comments below.
We’ve been seeing cool MINIs in the wild too. I saw my first GP plus a couple of R56s in the wild, so has Gabe.

Of course, since the Dragon is this week, we spend some time talking about that again. Quick reminder to all y’all that are going. Take it easy, have fun, don’t do anything crazy or stupid! Oh yea, if you take pictures, get those posted to Flickr and add them to the Motoringfile Flickr Group.
And, tips for traveling to MINI United. If you are going from the US, check out what MINIUSA is offering and be sure to sign up at the Owners Lounge as well as at the MINI United site.
Finally, we will be working with the NAMCC to bring you all the coverage and get you out to the track! There are a lot more races this year than last and you can see the whole schedule at minidriving.com. If you want to help Way and Brian, leave a comment below! More details are coming soon. Or, if you have an extra steering rack laying rack, Brian wants to talk to you!

Robert fills in for Gabe while he is at the Dragon. While he is not here, you can find him doing movie reviews and providing some great business advice. Be sure to check those out! Also, if you have any tips for Robert so he can sneak into the Owners Lounge, comment below.
Show off your Motoringbadges! Let us see your collections. There might be a prize involved.
Todd is starting to hear noises in the GP. Sound effects ensue.
Possible WRR Meet-up at the plant in Oxford. Anyone interested? Oh yea, if you haven’t already, be sure to check out the MINI United Flickr Group.
When we do finally get around to news, we talk first about some MINI United stuff, then the little bit of news from Motoringfile. And if you are one of the MINIs that will be driving through the Chunnel, we have a few recommedations for you.
Any ideas for the abbreviation for the Clubman?

Robert joins us again while Gabe was at MoTD.
Again we start off talking about food. At least it’s not the weather eh?
Robert might have a 2 MINI household soon. As soon as he can talk his wife into giving up the Mustang.
A little club talk. What happened to all the Canadian MINI enthusiasts? Clubs in the US are going gangbusters, while not so much in the Great White North. Comment below with your thoughts.
Todd still has love for the xB. No, really, he does. Don’t let him fool you!
Can anyone heel/toe in Birkenstocks?
Then we get in some great rant time about the price of gas. I’m happy to have finally found someone that has to pay as much as I did. It’s really time to start complaining about this again we think. Oh yea, plus some more tips on how to save gas. Let us know your thoughts on the price of gas in the comments below. Paying too much? Not enough? Let us know!
It’s really something that we were able to actually get this show up tonight. We had serious connection issues tonight due, no doubt, in part to packet shaping by the Canadian ISPs. That’s part of the reason for the echo.
Come back next week when Gabe returns. I’m sure he’s going to be talking about the Dragon, the R56 and the R56 at the Dragon.

db is revving the gadget review back up. Watch for the Zune/Ipod comparision this week! Gabe has a few gadgets he wants to review, plus you just know that db will be reviewing his digital camera soon too.
So, is Gabe ready to give up the R53 for an R56? You are going to have to listen for a few clues. And remember, his official long term R56 review goes up on Wednesday. He tells me all questions will be answered then.
Plus, he had a great time at the Dragon. There is a good chance that one had a big effect on the other.
As mentioned, check back Friday for the Zune Review with Brad Day from The Tech Lounge and watch next week for a review of the Treo 750 with Michael Babishkin.

Ah yes. Another Sunday, another Woofcast. Of course, it’s news of the week from Motoringfile.com, but not before we spend some time discussing why Gabe’s eyes are red, bleeps and beeps and cursing during the show, this video (very much not safe for work) and staying at Buckingham Palace.
If you are looking for older shows, I have updated the archive page to Woofcast #150 if you are looking to get the older shows. The best way to do it is just right click any of the links on that page (or cmd-click for you mac users) and choose save as.
Gabe is looking for places to stay in Germany. While we are at it, if there is anyone out there that can recommend a decent pub for Todd and I to check out when we are in London that would be great too. We are staying in Kensington, if that helps.
Oh yea. Gabe has a MySpace page. Oh no, no link for you. You’re going to have to work for it.

Before I even start, just a quick note to the affliates we do go long tonight. I trimmed about 7.5 minutes out. Watch for an out-take show later in the week.
So, more talk about MINI United. I have my passport and ticket just like everyone else, so we must be good to go.
Then we spent some time talking about Gabe’s R56 spec. And just a lot of things in general. We think you’ll enjoy the show!
Coming up later this week is the Treo 750 Review that I did with Michael Babishkin. If you are thinking about getting this phone or are just interested, be sure to check back for that. And, like I mentioned earlier, watch for an out-take show as well. We got off on a movie tangent (easy there Robert) and the possibility of Gabe being a tatoo artist.

News of the week from Motoringfile.com with db and Gabe. Todd was busy with house stuff this week, so we let him have the night off.
For those of you that missed it, we did broadcast the show live via ustream.tv with both audio and video! It was actually so cool that we will be doing that again this week. Check back on Thursday between 6:30PM PST and 8:30PM PST. The video is quite good and so is the audio. In fact, if you only wanted to listen live this is the best option I have come across yet. We’ll be able to answer your questions live as well. So check back!
And, yes, I am well of aware of any weird audio quality issues that you might be wanting to mention below. I had more than a little difficulty with my recording setup. I have paid proper homage to the audio recording gods (and ran through some testing with my setup again) to make sure that it doesn’t happen again, I hope.

Another live show, courtesy of ustream.tv.
We gave Todd the night off so he could work on getting his house ready to sell. I would also like to start by apologizing for the audio quality. I just couldn’t get the levels right. It will be better next week!
WRR is now on Facebook for those of you that play there. You can check out the WRR Group here.
We do spend some time talking about Gabe’s spec and the parting out of his R53. He is going to be selling his leather dash too, but you have to be local to Chicago or not mind the drive. If you are interested, leave a note below.
And we talked again about buying a used MINI and what to watch out for a little bit. Gabe and I are still working on the R50/R53 buyers guide and should have it done before we head to MINI United. This is something we talked about before way back on Woof 26. We do a little mind changing this time around, especially when buying an early build car, but only if you can get a warranty from the dealer.
If any of you out there Dark Silver owners have put an Aero kit on your MINI and you still have the original front and rear bumpers, Brian Black is in need of them. Or, if your dealer has a set that they would be willing to donate, again, leave a note below.
Finally, for those of you that missed it, we did broadcast the show live via ustream.tv with both audio and video! It was actually so cool that we will be doing that again this week.

Once we did get started, we rolled through news of the week from Motoringfile.com and spent a little bit of time talking about this post trying to get the MINI D here in the states.
Check back tomorrow when we discuss MINI United, Todd selling his house and answer listener voicemails. We’ll answer yours too if you play along. Just dial (206) 33-WHITE anytime, day or night and we’ll try to get it answered on the next show!

Some recording issues tonight. I, not being the master mixologist that Mr. Pearson is, lost the first 20 minutes of the show. Actually, I have it, but it sounds really really bad. I will be uploading it later today so you can download it if you like, but I will not be putting it into the feed.
Otherwise, it was news of the week from Motoringfile.com and motorcycle races on db’s street.
UPDATE – You can download the first 20 minutes here. It sounds very bad. I did what I could to clean it up. Oh yea, it also will only play in your left speaker (or ear if you are using headphones). When I mess something up, I have a tendancy to do a really good job with it!

Of course, I let the lads start off by talking about the iPhone. Enjoy it now as I’m not sure I’ll be able to stand any more of it. Skip ahead 10 minutes if you don’t want to hear it.
Gabe gave us his update on the status of his R56 and his time on the ‘ring. If you haven’t heard that yet, click over to this post and give it a listen.
Of course, we talked about news of the week and a little bit about MINI United. Full MINI United 2007 recap coming tomorrow, as well as still more audio on the way! Keep an eye out for it.

We noticed some interesting things about driving in Europe like the number of bicycles. They were everywhere!
Todd and I toured the MINI factory, Gabe drove on the ‘Ring plus we got to talk all those great people you already heard interviews of! It was a great event to be sure and if I were you, I’d start saving up for MINI United 2009 now! It will be worth it.
We still have a little bit of audio from MINI United coming as soon as Todd gets done selling/buying houses, plus full audio from our plant tour.

Gabe gives us an update on his R56. We are keeping fingers crossed that he gets it this week.
We are done with MINI United Audio. We aren’t hiding anything from you. We certainly hope you enjoyed the coverage!
Plus, we do news of the week. You can tell we haven’t done this in a while by the length of the show. It kinda got away from us. Don’t worry, we don’t take nearly as much of your time tomorrow night!

Then we spent some time talking about Porches (who knew the 914 was so small?) which then turned us a little bit toward Volkswagon (who knew the Thing was so cool?).
Then, a bit of listener feedback. Voicemails from MINI United (who knew db could not really remember the girls in the windows?) and 1 from Ian about automatic transmissions (who knew we could still be talking about this?).
We finish talking about the Clubman and would be very interested in your opinion! Leave a comment below Clubman MC vs. Clubman MCS (we already know that we won’t get the diesel Clubman in the States).

SeminarBQ and got a scoop from Fireball Tim about the shops involvement with Street Tuner Challenge on SpeedTV. More on that will be coming later in the week.
And, of course, news of the week from Motoringfile.com. There wasn’t that much news, but each item we discussed in greater than normal detail since there were quite a few hot button topics.
Again, we go a bit long, but we really had a lot to talk about. Oh yea, we are looking for click monkeys! If you happen to have iTunes open, go the WRR page (link below) and click the subscribe button as many times as you like.

2nd night with the new theme music, what do you think?
We roll into Gabe’s R56 talk with his new theme. What do you think? He brought his MINI home and parked it in the garage. The End. After I reminded him that he only bought a MINI and didn’t win an award, he gives us his initial thoughts.
As you would imagine, so far, he is loving his R56! You can read his first week review at Motoringfile.com here.
And I get to talk a little bit about alternative fuels. I think it was about 45 seconds, but didn’t really check the time. Don’t worry, I’ll keep on hammering the guys until they have no choice but to let me talk about it!
Todd’s out this week moving, so Gabe and I are going to take advantage of that and do another video show. Maybe. For those of you that caught the last, you know what a nightmare it was. I’ve been playing with ustream lately and they have made some great improvements in the software, so it should be a much simpler process. Watch this space for more information. If we do video, it will be Thursday at 6:30PM PST/8:30PM CST/ 9:30 EST.
We’ve had a few new reviews on iTunes, thank you! If you are one that hasn’t done that, and feel so inclined, just click over to the WRR page at iTunes.

Just Gabe and I again tonight, again via Ustream.tv. Yea, I know, you didn’t hear about it. We kinda snuck it in to do some testing, since the last time we did it was such a disaster.
We spend tonight talking mostly about the Clubman, including answering questions from the viewers. To finish, we spent a few minutes on the iPhone.
By the time you read this, Todd is all the way moved and still living out of boxes! That’s why he wasn’t around this week. We gave him the night off so he could finish moving, because we are cool like that.
This week we will be doing our 2nd anniversary show. There is a very good chance we will do it live again, on video. Keep an eye out here and at Motoringfile for details. I can’t say for sure, but if we do a live show, it will be on Thursday starting at around 9PM CST (do the math, forward and back, for your time zone). Sorry to those of you outside of the US that can’t make it. This is the only time we have to actually record the show.

A very successful attempt at a live show, again via uStream.tv and Motoringfile. For those of you that stopped by for the first show, you patience was appreciated as uStream was having a little bit of problems. The 2nd show was much better, both audio and video.
I am currently experimenting with an audio only solution (not sure Gabe will like that) that might work out better than the video. More experimentation will ensue.
Otherwise, news of the week from Motoringfile plus we answer a few listener emails. Oh yea, WRR turned 2 last Wednesday. Still the #1 independant automotive podcast in iTunes for the last 2 weeks as well. THANK YOU!

Again live via uStream.tv. The show you missed was the show between shows. A few stories about what happened in Amsterdam (by the way, it’s going to stay there too) among other things. You could call it a bit of black roof radio. Sorry you missed it ;) .
Upcoming events you might be interested in. MINIs in the Mountains is happening this coming weekend if you are near Denver. Also coming up soon is the Rolex Vintage Festival at Lime Rock Raceway 31 Aug-3 Sept. The good guys and gals at NYC MINI are tying to get something going that will be very cool and very MINI related. Hit ‘em up for details!
Besides that, we spend some more time, for Todds benefit, discussing the Clubman, especially since we got all the new pictures and video last week.
The live show worked very well this week and I’m fairly certain that we will do it again. We are going to try to come up a regular schedule for doing the live shows. Until then, be sure to keep an eye on Motoringfile and Whiteroofradio as we will announce it usually the morning of.

A little talk about some issues we had during the week as Gabe drove back into Chicago. He wasn’t under attack, it was the air show in town.
If you are an ’02 to early ’03 and you have the drilled control arms, you might want to check those out for cracks or bends. You can pick them up at your dealer or any of the fine sponsors listed on the right for a great price and they take 10 minutes with a jack, an 18mm socket and a 18mm box wrench. Definitely worth it for the piece of mind. Oh yea, while you are inspecting them, Gabe thinks it would be a good idea to check for rodents.
Looking for Gabe’s Ortega Highway joke? Woof 66 is where you will find it.
Then our top 5 mods for the ’02 – ’06 R53. I think we picked the standard mods, but if we missed something, let us know in the comments!
And, back by popular demand is the zip file of the show. Those of you that might be having problems downloading the show for whatever reason, give that one a shot and see if it works.

Todd and db taking a shot at making a news show.
Looking for gory pictures of Todd’s franken-thumb? It’s in my del.icio.us. It’s pretty nasty, so consider yourself warned.
Wingnut calls in (finally) and reports that the Euro Parcel shelf has, in fact, been crash tested and no one was hurt because of it. We also do a pretty good job answering his question about brakes. We also spend some time talking about wheel sizing.
Among the news, we covered this post at Motoringfile, where I asked what’s so hot about all-wheel drive. Besides wanting/needing it for safety in bad weather or racing in the dirt, why would you want this on a MINI? I’m seeing it as a crutch. Please convince me otherwise, I honestly don’t get it.
Check back tomorrow for Gabe on the track in his R56 and Todd in St. Louis. Plus, a short update from Robert in Toronto!

Starting off talking about the weather. I’m roasting in SoCal while Gabe and Todd are enjoying nice weather. Of course, we had to talk about A/C performance while we were at it. Remember, my A/C has been track tested to 11.5 second quarter mile.
AMVIV 5 IS A GO! Info is posted on NAM and Agro tells me he will be updating amviv.com very soon. Oh yea, we have no idea what’s happening for MTTS in ’08. Just keep it tuned to WRR and Motoringfile for details when they come in.
If you don’t have speedTV, now would be a good time to start planning that so you can catch the next Street Tuner Challenge coming up in October. I should be heading up to the shop next week to get an update from Tim and the boys.
Remember, the best way to get the Woofcast is to subscribe! Click the subscribe link at the top of the page for complete directions.

Todd has owned 10 iPods (he thinks) since they have been released. Go ahead and tell us your iPod story below or call it in to the voicemail line at (206) 33-WHITE.
Rainman in full effect! Time to thank all of you for listening and checking us out. We are experiencing 1 download every minute of every hour of every day! FANTASTIC! Keep it up.
AMVIV update for those who didn’t find it on NAM. The reservation group code at Palace Station in Las Vegas is pcimviv. I was told that they have upgraded the tower rooms yet again, which I plan on checking out when I go for SEMA in October. I’ll have a full report then.
Does anyone need a front bumper for an R53? Todd has one, don’t ask why. Use the contact form, come up with a good reason and Todd will let it it go for the cost of shipping.

iPhones lead us off before I go quickly into an update about the end of my year. If you are interested in Podcasting, the Podcast and New Media Expo is coming up at the end of the month, September 28-30th in Ontario, California. If you want to learn even MORE about podcasting, there is PodCamp SoCal happening on Thursday the 27th. I’ll be at Podcamp and 1 day, maybe 2, of the PME. Sunday for sure because the Ask a Ninja guys are doing the keynote. If you are planning on coming, leave a not below.
Of course news of the week. Of course you voted for MTTS already at the owners lounge, right? Make sure you mention WRR/Motoringfile in the comments too!
No zip file until later Monday. Sorry gang, but serious internet issues here at the house have left me with a connection that is just too slow to get it uploaded.

Woofcast #186. For reals this time, not like yesterday. That’s what not having consistent internet does to a guy. But right to it, we start with a little F1 talk (more info at autosport.com) and Gabe’s MINI rides too low. We think it’s because he is driving around Chicago like it’s the Streets of San Fransisco the Dukes.
We talk a bit about Karting before Todd lays down this weeks tip. R53 JCW owners, make sure you are getting your plugs changed (even if they killed the dinosaurs)! Take this service bulletin if your service department doesn’t believe you.
Finally, Gabe’s review of his JCW Engine Kit. Of course you already read the review, right?
Zips are up as well, if you need them. Follow the link below for 186, go back to the show notes for 185 to get that one. Sorry for the delay. Oh yea, you must check out the dramatic prairie dog. It’s awesome!

Mixing live brings us to finding out Gabe was actually awake, mostly because he worked too much. Then we find out Way and Randy are going to be in Topeka for the SCCA race next week. And then we moved into talking about the fine looking wagon that adorns this week’s show notes page and our thoughts on the new BMW x6.
Of course, news of the week from Motoringfile.com.
We are taking next week off. I said to reset show numbers, but really we just need a break. Don’t worry, there is still going to be something awesome for you to listen too, Plus there will be another Soundseeing tour from Robert! As a bonus to you, when we come back it will be with a live show! This time, via Talk Shoe instead of Ustream. Why the change? We want to be able to allow you to participate without having to refresh the page. Talkshoe has chat and (insert drumroll here) the ability to take calls! If we do decide to take calls or if you want to hang out in the chat room, you will need to have a free TalkShoe Account. I will post complete instructions later in the week.

We got a little silly tonight, but there is a lot of show for you, so lets get right to it!
Email starts us off. First, some events. Follow the links to get all the info you need. Pittstopmini.org with their event in October, MickeyandMINI.com coming up this weekend and The MINI club in Utah is having MINIs under the arches. Plus MotorTober at your local dealer. Give ‘em a ring to see what’s going on!
Then, a voicemail leads us into taking about track stuff. In fact, you can call this episode 1 of probably two of track day prep. It’s been a while since we have done one, so we figured it was time.
And we end with a preview of Robert’s upcoming Soundseeing tour which will be going up later in the week.
Want to learn more about Podcasting? The PME is happening this weekend, with a Podcamp going on Thursday. I’ll be there Thursday and Sunday for sure, so if you are going, be sure to find me and say hi.
Like I have mentioned already, we won’t be working this week. Instead you are going to get a great interview that Todd and I did while at Plant Oxford before MINI United. We are pretty sure you are going to love it. As a bonus for you, when we do come back (October 4th…mark your calendars!) we will doing it live. More details to follow later in the week. You might want to sign up for a free Talkshoe account in the meantime.

Immediately after touring Plant Oxford last June, Todd and I where wisked into a very large room where we got to interview the Quality and Engineering Director for MINI. We got to ask some great questions, and he answered all of them! Everyone at Plant Oxford was very generous with their time while we were there and if you ever get the chance to get over there for a tour it is highly recommended.
A short week this week as I mentioned during #188. Don’t worry, we are going to make it up to you in the form of a live show this Thursday! Full details to follow soon.

We are back with the first of 2 new shows for you this week. For those of you that missed it, we did the show live via TalkShoe. It worked pretty good so we might do it again.
Gabe’s intro is back! Isn’t it awesome? There is more musical madness going on tonight, so pay attention.
We start with some discussion about the interview we posted last week and how we think the Clubman is going to affect production. What do you think? Leave a note below. We also discuss a bit about things that may or may not have happened during MINI United. And, so it is known, the seat mechanism on the R56 works flawlessly! I can totally vouch for that if need be. So can Gabe.
And, of course, news of the week from Motoringfile.com.
By the way, it wasn’t my driving.
These will also be the last shows for a bit that I do the recording. HONEST. I know that the last few shows haven’t sounded as good as you are used to. I keep trying to give Todd a break from having to do it all the time but the results are less than you or I like.

Bad news from my service department this last week. Any suggestions for suspension upgrades for the Cooper? I’m looking seriously at the M7 Coilovers. Thoughts?
It’s MotorTober! Check out MINIUSA.com for complete details then give your dealer a call! We’ll be at dealers events toward the end of the month. October 21st I will be at Crevier MINI in Santa Ana for their Running of the Bulls event. Todd will be at Baron MINI on the 27th for their big event and you will be able to find Gabe at Westchester MINI on the 21st. If you are looking for something to do, come by and say hi!
We answer a few questions from the listeners that joined in via TalkShoe.com plus a few emails. Gabe says the buyers guide is about complete, so keep an eye out for it.

We roll right into it. For those of you that wrote in about the audio quality, don’t worry, we got all of the messages. Todd recorded this week (and he will next week as well) until I get a better handle on audio quality.
Todd rents a SUV. We make fun of AutoExpress and those silly MINI SUV renderings. Can you smoke plastic wrap? Can sushi make you full for more than a day? My MINI is in serious need of repairs. Hopefully to begin shortly. All things considered, she is doing pretty good for having almost 170K miles. I’ve got big plans for 200K. You are going to have to listen for details. and here is the video we talked about.
Plus, news of the week from Motoringfile.
Don’t forget Street Tuner Challenge premiers this Wednesday on Speed TV at 10:00PM EST, but check your local listings to be sure. You can see the full schedule here. Should be fun to watch this season as our very own Fireball Tim and the guys are pitting a MINI against a Ford Focus and Mitsubishi. If you are in SoCal and want to attend what will be a cool premier, you need to get over to Southbay MINI by 7:00PM. Get the first look at the car and watch the show! Should be fun.
We tried live via TalkShoe again, but the quality on our end got so bad we had to stop it. I really want to find a good way to do this live and will be experimenting more in the future. If you have any suggestions, feel free to leave a note below.

Update: Zipped versions of 193 (download) and 192 (download) are ready for those of you that need them.
We then spend quite a bit of time talking about what we think the MINI SUV might or might not be. Like it or not, it’s coming. What do you think it’s going to be?
We finish with a few tips about the Auto AC and stuck windows and, oddly enough, The Bionic Woman.

It’s ok, because we barely got Gabe tonight before he left for New York to go to the Westchester MINI Motortober event. We sneak in Clubman pricing. Well, Todd and Gabe know, but they won’t tell me. Can you believe that? That’s ok, Gabe said he’ll fill me in at AMVIV next year, 4 months after I find out at the LA Auto Show, just like everyone else.
Of course, the rest of the news from last week at Motoringfile.com.

Be sure to check out the About pages if you haven’t lately. They are neat.

Thanks again everyone that stopped by to join us for this live show and thanks for listening and keeping us at the top of charts! Well, ok, so it’s the iTunes charts, but I’ll take it! Here is the breakdown.
We are the number 1, automotive, independent, audio only, not re-purposed content podcast on iTunes. A stretch? Really, that means we experience over 1,000 downloads a day with almost 4,000 listeners by out calculations. So, THANK YOU!
Check back next week when Todd and Gabe trudge on without me. I’ll be hanging out with Robert in Canada this weekend so I’ll be missing the show. I hope they behave themselves.

Some of you have been having trouble getting the shows via iTunes. I wish I knew what the problem was, but I don’t. Unfortuneately, there isn’t anything that I can do about that. But, keep letting me know you are having the problem! Just leave a note in the comments or use the contact form. Be sure to give your country and what operating system you are using (Windows or Mac). I know there have been weird and wacky things going on with iTunes lately and I hope everything gets sorted out soon.

Starting off with a plea from Gabe for a set of wheels for winter. As it turns out, he is not a fan of the Crown Spokes. Anything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated! And Todd is looking for a drivers side parcel shelf. Anyone willing to help out leave a note below.
Then, Todd tells a horror story concerning the ‘widow makers’. Oh no, you’ll have to listen to find out what he means. I can say that winter roads can, possibly, cause some embarrassment, not to mention serious car damage. Lessons to live by people.
Gabe didn’t really take 24 hours to build a clubman. That’s the magic of the internets right there! Long live the tubes!
Not quite 175K miles, but I’ll be there by the end of the week. Watch the Flickr for when it does happen.
We finally get around to talking about The Motoringfile Gift Guide and what we would like to have off of it.
R50/R53 owners looking for some cool accessories might want to put a call into the parts desk. There are some smokin’ hot deals to be had. Check it out.
Yes I did, in fact, buy skinyourfridge.com. Watch for it!
And, finally, add another classic TV show theme song to our repertoire, and Gabe doesn’t know about the Rockford Files! Someone back us up here.

Starting, again, with Gabe’s wheel dilemma. Then, on to some sage, and fun, advce for a potential new MCS owner. And a little Zune smack down. And a little reminicing about our first cars. Plus news of the week from Motoringfile.com.
If you are a Zune owner, don’t forget you can now find the Woofcast in the Zune Marketplace. We are there under Lifestyle –> Hobbies. Even near the top too!
Check back tomorrow. We do an audio Ask MF!

To get us started, way back at the beginning of ’07 I said my goal for the year was to triple the numbers of listeners from ’06. Oh yea, we definitely did that. Thank you!
Ian Cull got an R56, we answer an email from the MF mailbox, installing an iPod and, oddly enough, games and game consoles.
No show for the 23rd or the 24th. We are going to take Christmas off. We will have stuff for you to download on those days, just no real show.

We start off tonight hating the internet. For reals. Then, some MINI2 news before moving into talking about people that are leaving the MINI brand for whatever reason.
Of course, we also cover news of the week from Motoringfile.
Great shows this week! I think you’ll approve. We have also decided that we are going to do 1 show next week and we are going to do it live! Next Thursday, 7PM PST. Keep an eye on the sites for details Wednesday.

We start with a bit of random exercise talk before jumping right into Todd singing, and our connection promptly dropped out!
Then a recap of the year that was 2007 at Motoringfile. All of the stories we discuss can be found at the top of Motoringfile, 1st column top under the heading Recent Featured Articles.
Live show this week. We are going to recap the year that was 2007 at WRR and think it will be fun if you join us! Check back Thursday the 20th at 7:00 PM PST/9CST/10EST to join in the fun.
And stick around after this show just a bit. Gabe kept going on and on and on about tires.

Fair warning, this episode might not be safe for work.
This show was taped live via uStream.tv and if you missed it, well, next time you might not want too. Almost 1 full hour of black roof radio after the show was done with a chat room full of MINIacs! It was great fun! If you think we should do this more often, vote in the poll!
A little reminiscing about the year that was WRR. AMVIV, The Dragon for Gabe and MINI United. What a great year we had, all of it thanks to you! In case you missed any of it.

The schedule will be a little wacky for the next few weeks, but we should be back on track by the 2nd week of January to be sure. I have also taken this time to update the Archive page with direct links to all of our shows through 200. So go nuts!
Merry Christmas, Happy New Years and all that too all you from all of us!
