Woofcast #281
January 5, 2009
Duration: 53:06

The morning edition with Todd, Michael and myself talking about all things MINI like we like to do. Sitting here, I am seriously bummed about missing the big jump on New Years Eve. At least mine was better than Micheal’s, so there is that.
We roll through news of the week from Motoringfile.com as we normally do, spending a fair amount of time talking about colors and the cars that we have been seeing on the road.
After a fine voicemail we roll into the crowd-sourcing portion of the show. Todd is looking for windscreen wipers that don’t suck and I am looking for a wiper for the rear window that also doesn’t suck. Any suggestions? You know what to do.
There is more, but you are going to have to listen along to find out!

Of course, we start with news from Motoringfile as always. Plus some things that Todd remarkably editted out. This was a fun show that I’m pretty sure you all will enjoy.

All four of us actually together all at the same time talking about MINI stuff like we like to do.
Before going any further, I would like to take the opportunity to remind you that both Todd and myself will be at AMVIV this year and you should be too. If you missed the news, Palace Station has extended the group rate so you can sign up a little later. Don’t wait until the last minute however.
Also, thanks to everyone for sending in those events! Michael and I will be recording a new Event Cast this week and I hope to have it up by the weekend.
Finally, news of the week from MotoringFile. Including Gabe’s take on a few stories we covered last week plus we all give our take on the new JCW body kit and the JCW car in general.
If you missed it, MotoringFile has a brand new Facebook page. A new one for WRR is in the works and will be ready soon. Watch this space for updates!

Big show for you this week. Before we get started, be sure to check out the most recent Event Cast in case you missed it.
On to news from Motoringfile.com and Gabe joined in late. BTW, MF and BimmerFile scooped everyone on the Chris Bangle story. Listen as Gabe swoons over the work that he did while at BMW/MINI.
Moving on to throttle body sticking in cold weather. Gabe is pretty sure he has the fix, but you will have to listen to find out what it is.
Don’t forget the voicemail line! 202-206-3252 should already be programmed into your phones. Call anytime, it’s always open.

For those of you that thought we were going to be live, all apologies. We had a bit of a scheduling conflict. Before that, I choked on the intro and Todd and I both realize that we are getting old after realizing that our good friend The Future Queen of Nebraska (Happy Birthday Tori!) was born the year we graduated highschool.
Gabe was at the Chicago Auto Show so not able to be with us, but we carried on without him with news of the week from Motoringfile.
Then some auto industry talk and bit more on the throttle body freezing issue. Todd dug into this a little deeper and has a very good explanation as to what is happening. From what we understand, this is only affecting the MCS and Clubman S (and some Volkswagens). We explain what is happening and what they are trying to possibly fix it. If this is a problem that you are having with your MINI, be sure to get it into the dealer to have it looked at.
We will try for live again this week. Keep an eye out for a post Wednesday or Thursday morning on the sites for details. No details, no live show.

Quite a bit of chatter about my new camera, affair-proofing a MINI, Molly Wood, the weather in Kansas City, Todd sells 2 MINIs and Fireball Tim is selling his.
Then, on to news of the week from Motoringfile, including more making fun of the Clubman Spoiler.
Before we get into the content portion of the show, Robert in Toronto checks in. You can search for his AMVIV videos over at YouTube or check him out at his other podcast at MobileMovie.ca. It’s great fun!
Gabe checks in via satellite phone from an undisclosed location and he talks a little about the 135i he drove last week then Todd and Gabe spend pretty much the rest of the show waxing poetic about all things JCW and then on to talking about cars built in America. No, really.
Don’t forget, AMVIV is coming up at the end of the month and we have some cool stuff planned for those of you that aren’t going to make it. I’ve WhiteRoof.tv updated and warmed up and will be partnering with WRR listener and show producer Sherwin Smith from BehindTheVroom for any video we do. So, get over there and get subscribed!
Finally, if you are going to AMVIV and want Todd to install graphics on your MINI, you should contact him very soon.

Apologies for posting late. A live show tonight! Thanks to everyone that made it, apologies to those of you that missed it. And yes, for the record, Todd was wearing pants.
AMVIV is just about a week away! Listen in for Todd’s tip for getting a room in Vegas if you missed out on the great rate Palace Station was offering. There is still time to register for the event if you haven’t already. Even if you don’t register, you should still think about going, but remember, if you don’t register, you won’t be able to attend the banquet. Tickets for that are presale only.
If you do decided to go, be sure to be around the upper deck of Palace Station on Saturday because we will be doing an honest to goodness live show. Woofcast #291 or #292, depending on what happens this week.
Of course, we cover news of the week from Motoringfile.com. If you were wondering what a Space Box is, here you go. Of course, if you are looking for something more practical, check out the image above, sent in by our good friend Jim Peterson, The “Kernel” of C.O.R.N.
More on AMVIV to follow early next week. Stay tuned!
If you missed it, I’ve set up a few White Roof Radio page at Facebook, with links to other cool places on Facebook, including the AMVIV group. Come join us!

But what happened to Woofcast 291? Well, it’s a funny story, but we’ll get to that later.
This episode we cover news, as always, from Motoringfile.com, but not so much with Gabe’s new car.
Plus a quick AMVIV wrap-up.
But what about Woof291? You see, we recorded it live from Vegas. But, if I’m honest, it’s listenable. Not to worry because we did capture it on video. You don’t care about the video, but the audio is awesome and I will be posting that this coming weekend.

We’re back talking about weather, for those of you that might have missed that.
Of course we talk about the news from Motoringfile. And we talk about what happened to Woofcast 291. And some information about a few events you might have heard of including The Dragon, MINs in the Mountains and a little event happening in England.
I am looking for tips, tricks or any information you might have concerning my upcoming suspension rebuild. I’ve picked the Alta Rear Sway Bar, Koni Shocks and Eibach Springs (since I already have them). I will probably be replacing the front ball joints myself as well. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Weather, Michael moving and some cell phone talk, including a pretty handy iPhone tip from our man Todd.
Before getting into the news, I give a quick update on my MINI, including a possible reason for my check engine light coming on, plus I had a wtf moment.
For news of the week, from Motoringfile as always, and Gabe actually was able to join us for a little bit this week too with an update on his new ride plus his thoughts on the MINI Airstream, the Speedster, the R60 plus quite a bit more. It was great to have him on this week!
For those of you heading to the Dragon this weekend, have fun and be safe! If you missed it, check out MINIsontheDragon.com for all of the info. Watch for new badges from Motoringbadges coming very soon too.
Are you getting a MINI E? Let us know! We would like to talk to you about the process and the car. Also, if you are planning on going to MINI United this year, chime in below. We have something cool planned for Woofcast 300 while we are there.

A show for the masses this one. Gabe joins us after hanging out with robots and super models all week to talk MINI and BMW with us tonight. And keeping Todd busy with the bleep button.
I saw BMW because we start with Gabe giving us a quick low down on his 335D test car. He really likes it and thinks you should too. Watch for that review to show up on Motoringfile and Bimmerfile very soon.
After all of that, we finally get into news of the week from MotoringFile including getting Gabe’s take on pretty much all of it followed by a voicemail call from our good friend Jim ‘Trader’ Skater. You too can play along by calling 206-202-3252.
We lost Gabe and wrapped up talking about the Chrysler BK and the possible Fiat bailout. Could be interesting.
Don’t forget, it’s official. Todd and I are both going to be at MINI United in 2 weeks! If you aren’t, don’t worry, we are going to hook you up with the most complete coverage that you can find anywhere. Full details to follow later in the week.

A short run through the top stories from MotoringFile.com with Mr. Gabe Bridger in attendance before getting into what we will be doing at MINI United. Not before I realize that Todd and I totally need spy gear.
Do you suffer from the dreaded Death Rattle? Check that post at MF and definitely bring it up with your dealer! And, if you are looking for some great MINI E links, check out this post at Jasonsmini.com.
Finally, we talk a bit about what’s going on during MINI United and how we are planning our attack. First of all, we also can’t believe that they invited us along for a Pub Crawl. We also know that a Pub Crawl usually requires more than 2 pubs. Something, I can only imagine, we’ll be making at attempt to fix.
Don’t forget, if you want to follow along with our upcoming MINI United coverage, you can. All the details can be found here. Of course, if you are going to be at MINI United (or are already there), keep an eye out for Todd and myself and be sure to stop by and say hi!

The Woofcast is back! So much in fact that we had to split it into 2 parts this week. Starting off tonight, Todd and Gabe spend some time getting caught up, including Gabe’s latest BMW press cars. Of course, this is the MINI Cooper Podcast, so they finished off talking about news of the week from Motoringfile.com as usual.

Todd and I take the time to completely recap the drunken debauchery that was MINI United 2009. The things we saw, the things we did, including driving Silverstone circuit. Yes, that Silverstone. Yes, in a MINI. Yes, it was pretty awesome. Too bad Todd got an automatic transmission. He ended up taking a leisurely cruise around the course instead.
How about a funny story about MINI USA? Sure, we have one of those too. And, if you missed it, there was this. Which was pretty funny too.
Huge thanks to MINI USA for bringing us along for the ride, and equally HUGE props to RA Events for putting it all together. Those folks can plan an event, lemme tell ya!
And, see what happens when you call into the WRR Voicemail line. You get a free promo. So, do yourself the favor by clicking over ssallykat.com to check out her cool motoring inspired clothing line. Thanks for calling in Sally!

Todd, Michael and myself got together last week and put a great show down for you this week. And, at just at an hour long, quite a bit as well.
Starting off with Michael’s gas woes driving from California to Ohio, then right into news of the week from Motoringfile.com.
For the content portion of the show, we spend some time on the JD Power Survey Results. Why we think the MINI scored so low to why we think you should still buy a MINI. Bonus, if you listen close, you can hear Todd make the squealing clutch sound. Finishing talking about stuff we do now that we would have not done before because we are MINI Owners. Also, interestingly enough, most of us have been presidents of our respective MINI Clubs.
Big thanks to Greg for calling into the WRR voicemail line at 206-202-3252. Check out his classic Mini blog at minicooper.tumblr.com.
Lots of cool WRR and MF stuff going on around the internet lately. You can join our fan pages at Facebook a little easier now. facebook.com/whiteroofradio and facebook.com/motoringfile. You can also follow the WRR Twitter bot for updates as they happen.
Finally, how about a Motoringbadges magnet-off? Listen up for details.

Starting our 4th year with Woofcast 301, joined by a couple of guys that you might know. Agro, grand poobah of AMVIV and Chad Miller from Detroit Tuned help us out with news from Motoringfile, Bimmerfile and other places. A quick note to the affliates, we do go long in this episode.
After news, Chad lays down some tips to help keep your MINI running well and performing some of your own DIY installs like brakes. This brought up the idea for a possible new segment on the show called Ask Chad, where he answers your questions. What say you? Leave a comment below.
Finishing off with some event talk, including an update to AMVIV 7. If you want to get on the mailing list, you can do that here. Get on the list and be the first to know about what’s going on with AMVIV.
If you are going to MINIs in the Mountains, be sure to stop by and say hi to Todd. He will have the new badges plus a few new designs that you are sure to like. Watch for those to show up on Motoringbadges.com very soon.
And, for those that might have missed it, there is a new MINI Community on the internet. It’s called Motoring Alliance and it’s where all the cool kids are hanging out these days. Check it out.

I’m not sure about you out there in the listening audience, but I think we’ve been stringing together some great shows lately, this one is no exception.
Of course we do news from MotoringFile. Some great discussions about the upcoming coupe and R60 and just MINI stuff in general.
Tonight is also the world premier of our brand new segment called Ask Chad. That’s right, our own Chad Miller from Detroit Tuned is now taking questions about modding, repairs or anything else you can think of, and answering them during the show. We start with three great questions tonight, followed by 3 great answers. One of the answers included the Sprint Booster. You can find more information about it here.
We also decided to barge in on our sister station over at the Bimmercast. Gabe and Michael talked MINIs and F1 with us for a few minutes before we caught the internet on fire. If you missed it, the Bimmercast has a new iTunes link. Subscribe here.
Also new this week are brand new designs at Motoringbadges.com including the 300 to 300k badges we talked about and all the hot new badges for the ladies!
Finally, want Chad to answer your question? Send it over to askchad@whiteroofradio.com or phone it in the voicemail line.

Coupe, Coopster, Concept or whatever you want to call, we spend a bit more talking about it tonight, along with a few of the other stories from MotoringFile, including more on the diesel MINI possibility coming to the US in the form of the R60.
If you missed our take on the new concept last week, you can find it here or in iTunes. Great insight from Todd and Gabe especially, worth the listen.
Finishing off with Todd at the Balduchi Winery, including getting a chance to talk to a guy that drove his MINI from St. Louis to Alaska! Watch for WRR at more events in the future as well, including a very very strong possibility of us going to the Dragon in ’10!
You might have heard about Jack Belcher already in the SCMM Newsletter I posted earlier in the week. If you want to see the photos, I posted them over at dbmini.us last week. Listen past the end of the show for a short interview with did with him during one of the AMVIVs.
All of the other links mentioned during the show can be found over there on the right, including a link to the Official MINI YouTube Channel. Thanks to Dean from Indiana for calling into the Voicemail line at 206.202.3252. Keep those calls coming gang, especially if you want us to answer your question in the next Ask Chad segment!
Finally, go buy a badge, especially the 300 to 300k Badge. If y’all buy enough of them, if we do cover the Dragon next year, I would really like to try to drive in my MINI!

Full crew tonight. And by full crew I do mean all 5 of us, plus Michael from the Bimmercast. Most talking about the new Coupe since it capitalized the news at MotoringFile. We also discussed pricing (be prepared to be shocked) and the availability of Limited Slip. We do go pretty long in this episode.
Then into another edition of Ask Chad! Great questions that produced some great answers! If you are looking for the R56 Cooper intake (or R55 or R57 Cooper), click the image above to go straight to Detroit Tuned to put your name on the list.
We also have a brand new sponsor! MINI of Ontario isn’t even open yet and those lads are jumping right into the MINI Community like nobody’s business. They will be the newest MINI Dealership in California, located in Ontario, California. They are using the Twitter, and if you want to be kept up-to-date as construction happens and new MINIs start to arrive, follow them!

@MINIParts – Parts Manager, Colin Benham
@MINIService – Service Manager, Eric Hall
@MINISales – Sales Manager, Joe Romero
@MINIofOntario
Click the link above to go directly to the site to contact them or to follow their progress!
Finally, I’m looking for independant service centers that are MINI friendly. Leave a comment over there with your favorite shop including all the contact information and address. I’m hoping to get enough to build up a database at White Roof Radio that everyone would be able to use.
We do realize we have been putting up longer shows again. Would you rather the 1 long show or prefer we start to split it again when it goes long. Sound off in the comments!

Ask Chad and a whole lot more! We start with news from MotoringFile, which was primarily Coopster and Speedster talk. If you want to see some great photos from the Frankfurt IAA, go over and check out Micheal Talley’s Flickr stream. Some fantastic photos of cars, and not just the MINIs. If you missed it before, we actually spoke with him about the Speedster live from Frankfurt. Check it out.
After that, we roll into another episode of Ask Chad with our man Chad Miller from Detroit Tuned, . Sadly, neither Todd or I snorted. I know you are disappointed. If you have a question for Chad that you would like to have answered on the show, send an email over to askchad@whiteroofradio.com or call the voicemail line at (206) 202.3252.
If you would like to help support White Roof Radio by adding to the Project: Roxy fund you can and it’s simple. Click over to Motoringbadges.com and order up one of those fancy 300 to 300k badges. You will also get the very cool, very limited, WRR Supporter decal too! Remember, all proceeds (after expenses and Todd’s Bourbon of the Month club membership) go directly to getting my MINI back in tip-top shape in hopes of driving her to MINIs on the Dragon in 2010!

It’s the Todd and Gabe show! Some talk about the upcoming LeMons race, some more Speedster talk, more on the dreaded oil pan gasket leaks plus an AMVIV update with Andrew ‘Agro’ Ross. Full text of the update to follow very very soon, but you will want to book your room soon!
If you are an owner of an ’03 – ’06 MINI Cooper S (R53), be sure to take some time this week to check your oil! It’s simple and only takes a minute or two next time you are fueling up. Not fueling this week? Then do it when you get home from work in the driveway. Just make sure the engine is warm when you check it. Making sure you have enough oil in your crankcase will save you from an engine failure! In case you missed it, I made up a handy video how-to to help you out.
As mentioned above, we talked with Agro about AMVIV. There was a new email that went out this week that will be going up first thing tomorrow morning. If you want to get subscribed to the list, you can do that here.
Thanks for listening gang! I was checking out iTunes Monday night and we were coming in at number 5 in the Automotive category! Keep listening and we’ll keep making shows. Don’t forget to spread the word to your friends!
Also, since I missed this show, we are running the photo contest until next Monday, October 5th. All you have to do is post a photo of your MINI at the WRR Facebook Fan Page to get a chance to win a Motoringbadge of your choice!

News from Motoringfile plus an epic Ask Chad segment that we all think you will appreciate. But, before getting into anything else, this is SEMA week which means Todd and I will be in Las Vegas for a few days to see what’s going on. If you are in Vegas too, come by The Pub at Palace Station Wednesday night at around 7:00PM and say. Todd and I will be hanging out with whoever comes by. Rumor is that Fireball Tim might stop by as well.
Listen for details about the November contest. It envolves the voicemail line, so you might want to plug it into your phone now.
Finally, what you have all been waiting for, an extended Ask Chad segment! Keep those questions coming in gang and Chad will keep answering them. Remember, the email address is askchad@whiteroofradio.com.

Before we even start, I need to let you know that Todd and I got a chance to see Alliante Station, home of AMVIV 2010. All we can say is it’s going to be off the hook and awesome! If you want to stay there, you had better get a move on and make your reservation because the hotel is almost booked up!
With that out of the way, of course we do the latest news from Motoringfile.com like we like to do, including give our own take on the R60 delays among other things. You also hear our man Chad Miller from Detroit Tuned tonight, which can only mean 1 thing. That’s right, Ask Chad! Quite a few great questions and tips this time around, so pass attention.
Keep those questions coming. You know how, right? Email them to askchad@whiteroofradio.com or call them into the voicemail line at 206-202-3252.
Finally, don’t forget the November contest. Call into the voicemail line to wish MINI of Ontario good luck during their grand opening. I will be selecting one of the callers, at random, to win whatever I buy next time I’m there. Good chance it will be something cool and MINI related.

Ah, just like the old days. Todd and I doing a show with Gabe, driving a car nobody cares about, whippin’ up a quick batch of White Roof Radio for all y’all.
CVT bashing, auto maker bashing, the on-again-off-again Rolls Royce MINI, and whale penis leather. You know, typical WRR, like we like to do.
You did hear correctly. Todd and I did an episode of the Bimmercast last week. Go over and give it a listen or don’t, because Todd is going to be re-editing it for Woof 316 for next week.
Have a great Thanksgiving everyone! And, for those of you not in the US, have a happy Thursday!

As we mentioned during Woofcast 315, Todd and I joined Gabe and Michael from the Bimmercast where we got to hear first hand from Michael about his time with the MINI E. You can read his full review here.
It was great to get with these guys and we think you’ll enjoy the show.Apologies if you already got it from the Bimmerfile feed.
Normal service has resumed for this week and we’ll be back with Woofcast 317 next Monday. In the meantime, Motoringbadges and MINI of Ontario are open and waiting to fulfill your holiday motoring needs!

As I mentioned during the show, there is a good chance that this will be the last WRR of ’09 with the holidays upon us. That said, I should have a Holiday Music Sampler for you to download next week. Keep an eye out for that.
