Congratulations are in order, you guys can do that below.

Weather and Vegas silliness to get us started this week. And Todd had lunch with Carlos Santana. And Chad shoveled the driveway. And Todd reconned the Silverton Resort for [AMVIV](http://www.amviv.com).
Once I was done typing the word and, we got started with news from the week from [MotoringFile](http://www.motoringfile.com), including out thoughts about the odd things that are falling through the cracks at MINI.

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

I still don’t think the diesel is coming and other news from [MotoringFile.com](http://www.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](http://dbmini.us/whats-in-a-name/).
Don’t forget any of the fine sponsors for your Valentine. Might I recommend [a smart phone holder](http://www.cravenspeed.com/smart-phone-mounts/) from Craven Speed (aka the ‘Squeezy Thing’) or perhaps some [fine motoring gear](http://www.outmotoring.com/mini-cooper-accessories/mini_cooper_motoring_gear_driver_gear/) from Outmotoring.com? Trust me, this stuff is Valentines Day gold friends.
Finally, we are getting closer to our goal of $100 per episode at [Patreon](http://www.patreon.com/whiteroofradio). We really appreciate the support!

Woofcast #540: Only If I Can Keep the Lizards

I get things started talking about graphics removal from Bruce and the new JCW body kit. Photos of that will follow and I’m going to be curious to hear what you guy think of it with, gasp(!), painted arches. And a few other things that I want to get done before we move on to cover news from [MotoringFile.com](http://www.motoringfile.com). Oh, and even **more** GP talk, because Todd did math and numbers don’t lie. You weren’t hearing this either, we did let Alex do the intro, in French, because that’s how we do.
Oh, and you guys did see the [lizards](http://dbmini.us/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/IMG_1811.jpg), right? There has already been a tribute posted [on Facebook](https://scontent-2.22773.fna.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xaf1/v/t1.0-9/10636105_953658074658761_4026812580804257017_n.jpg?oh=3828a00da55b322ecd94312098edc3e4&oe=554FB6BA).

Woofcast #557: The Dog Show

We start with dogs, move on to more dogs (via [MINIUSA](http://k9showroom.miniusa.com/)) and end, oddly enough, on dogs. In between, we do get to the latest news from MotoringFile, the last episode of Top Gear and my current experience with the Automatic ODB reader and [error codes](http://dbmini.us/errors-and-toys/).
I’ve recommended this in the past on [Facebook](http://www.facebook.com/whiteroofradio), but the best podcast that you aren’t listening to is [99% Invisible](http://99percentinvisible.org/). Check it out, if for no other reason that the last 2 episodes talked about automation in planes and cars. Really interesting stuff for the nerds out there.

They get to all of this after Gabe tells me how awesome my car looks, painted arches and all. After that, and discovering that Alex is slowly turning into an American, Gabe and Alex talk about what they know so far (to last Thursday), about the [new JCW](http://www.motoringfile.com/section/jcw/). We even manage to answer an Ask Chad questions. Big show this week. BIG SHOW!
And, be sure to take a few minutes to check out [outmotoring.com](http://www.outmotoring.com) and [CravenSpeed](http://www.cravenspeed.com) for all of your MINI Cooper needs, wants and desires.

Woofcast #561: The $50 Liquid Cake

On this, the **10th ANNIVERSARY** of White Roof Radio, we are joined by our good friend AJ on her way to the Mack. Then, we talk about the Top Gear boys heading to Amazon Prime, MINI on the Mack, recalls and Alex recaps his trip to Lime Rock and his time in the new F56 JCW. Plus, don’t forget to check out [iamnotwearingpants.com](http://www.iamnotwearingpants.com) to check if you have any outstanding recalls on your car. Oh yea, and bunny girl.
And, yes, 10 years ago TODAY we released the very first episode of White Roof Radio. Over 700 unique shows, interviews with the who’s who in the MINI Community, events and owners that we have met along the way. No way, NO WAY, we could have done this without you guys. Seriously.
Also, no way, NO WAY, I could have done this without Gabe, Nathaniel, Chad, Micheal and Alex. I’m working on fixing the archives and the feed to make it easier to find the older shows that these guys helped to make awesome. And, for sure, no way White Roof Radio would be what it is today without our man Todd. Every week he tolerates my crap and puts together **the highest rated and longest running independent Podcast on the planet**! No way I would still be doing this if it wasn’t for him.
Thanks for listening. Thanks for subscribing. Thanks for supporting us. And, most of all, thank you for listening to us talk about MINI Cooper Stuff (like we like to do) every week.
Stick around. We have some amazing things on deck. Sure, it’s been 10 years but we are just getting started!

Woofcast #566: Setting Off Car Alarms

Starting off picking on Alex because he won’t stop using Waze and I tell my Waze story. We wish it worked, but Todd started his installation 4 months ago and it’s still not done. Once we finish with that nonsense, Todd tells us about his experience looking at Volvo’s (you’re welcome!). Then, it’s news from [MotoringFile](http://www.motoringfile.com), mostly about the Clubman as you can expect. Keep an eye out at your dealer to possibly catch a glimpse before the end of October. We also talk about [VW cheating emmissions](http://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/19/business/volkswagen-is-ordered-to-recall-nearly-500000-vehicles-over-emissions-software.html?_r=0). This can only end badly for them, as the stock market today is already starting to show.
We finally have time to share the sounds clips Todd recorded in the F56 MINI Cooper S with JCW exhaust. Don’t forget to get the full [skinny about this upgrade](http://www.motoringfile.com/2015/09/06/dino-results-f56-with-jcw-tuning-kit/) that Pedro from [MotoringFun.com](http://www.motoringfun.com) has been doing to his F56.

Woofcast #567: Boom, You’re an American

We heard you like the new Clubman, so we put some Clubman in your Clubman. #Clubman. You might have guessed that we spent a fair amount of time talking about the Clubman (!), mostly because the configurator went live. We all took the time to do a quick build out, even with all of the quirks in the configurator. Have you built yours? If so, share it over on the [White Roof Radio Facebook page](http://www.facebook.com/whiteroofradio) or below in the comments. Let’s see what you built!
Also, Alex is going to Nascar, the Pope was in a Fiat and a little more VW bashing. And some updates about my MINI and a few other things. All good stuff gang, you aren’t going to want to miss it!
Speaking of missing it, if you have noticed the show not showing up in iTunes, there was a glitch in the matrix making things not show up correctly. I think it’s been fixed, but if you are having any issues, please let us know.
Finally, [Craven Speed](http://www.cravenspeed.com). Go over there and check them out. Our favorites are the [shifter stuff](http://www.cravenspeed.com/shifter-parts/), [Squeezy thing](http://www.cravenspeed.com/smart-phone-mounts/) stuff and [performance stuff](http://www.cravenspeed.com/performance/) (including some great parts for you F56 owners). All good stuff, all super high tech, all super awesome. Go on over and check it all out!

Hint; it’s getting better. And Chad lays down the knowledge during Ask Chad. If you are looking for those parts (as seen above) you can get them at the following links.

Besides that, Todd and Alex had a great interview with Stephen Simpson from [Lap Motor Sports](http://www.minijcwteam.com/)([Follow on FB too!](https://www.facebook.com/LAPMotorsports)). You should already be keeping track of everything, but they did finish the racing season with a [second place at Road Atlanta](http://www.motoringfile.com/2015/10/07/race-report-mini-jcw-series-finale-at-road-atlanta/).

Our boy Alex loves the Star Wars. He started watching the new trailer last week and hasn’t stopped yet. Needless to say, we start with some Shuttle Cast this week. Besides Star Wars, some talk about Podcast Apps that we like.
Moving on, it is the convertible show. The new [Convertible MINI](http://www.motoringfile.com/section/f56-era-3rd-generation-new-minis/f57-convertible/) was announced last week and that’s what we spend the most of the show talking about it.

Woofcast #573: Hello, Donald

Another big show for you guys! News from [MotoringFile](http://www.motoringfile.com) as usual, including us really digging the upcoming 4 door limited edition [JCW Carbon Edition](http://www.motoringfile.com/2015/11/07/exclusive-the-four-door-jcw-carbon-edition-revealed/), which we think is going to be a winner. Too bad only about 150 of them are coming to the states. If you are interested, you should start bugging your dealer now!
Todd gives us the low down on SEMA. You should check out the photos on the [WRR Instagram](http://www.instagram.com/whiteroofradio) page. Looks like another great time was had by all. No, seriously, my entire internet last week was nothing by SEMA. It was awesome!
We talk a bit more about #[MTTS2016](http://www.minitakesthestates.com). Click over to get on the email list to keep updated. Or, you know, stay tuned to White Roof Radio because you guys know we’ll get all of the information as it becomes available! Also check out the [dyno pulls](http://www.motoringfun.com/2015/11/09/sunshine-minis-fall-dyno-day-2015/#more-929) that Pedro posted over at MotoringFun.com. Interesting numbers coming out of the F56 JCW, especially if it’s _slightly_ tuned.
Finally, a tech note. Some of you might have gotten some of the older shows in your feed this week. Apologies for any inconvenience that might have caused. I was fixing something with the feed. Everything should work as expected going forward.

Woofcast #574: Get Your Head Out Of Your Apps

Lots of show for you guys tonight. To get this out of the way, thanks to **everyone** that reminded us that we missed the Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald anniversary. Are you new here? No worries, [Woofcast 21](http://www.whiteroofradio.com/woofcast-21/) will get you up to speed. The first 10 minutes are classic White Roof Radio and you really should listen.
Moving on, it’s BMW 135 vs. MINI Cooper JCW to get us started before we head into news about the Clubman and the upcoming Dakar rally. Finishing with some of the stores that caught our attention last week, especially [this one](http://jalopnik.com/utah-has-street-signs-telling-you-to-get-your-head-out-1741806913) about Utah’s freeway signs that _might_ have trigged a short db rant. Maybe.
Also, over at [Detroit Tuned](http://www.detroittuned.com), there is a very cool new seat belt wallet that you are going to want to have. Keep listening for a very special deal for the holidays too; **FREE** shipping on all orders over $150! Stock up for Christmas or yourself to take advantage of this great deal!

We handle news from [MotoringFile](http://www.motoringfile.com) as always, including quite a bit more Clubman news, JCW stuff and our thoughts about the new convertible.
Also, we answer a group Ask Chad question, kind of, explaining the difference between a 1st generation and 2nd generation R56 and why the post LCI cars are better. If you have been around for any time, you have heard this conversation before.
When you have a minute, check out [this gallery](https://www.facebook.com/lex.adams/media_set?set=a.10206648683428055.1073741938.1001948275&type=3&pnref=story) of photos from the LA Auto Show by Lex Adams.

Ladies and Gentlemen, presenting the final episode of White Roof Radio for 2015. Finishing off the beginning of our **10th year** podcasting with some news, views, opinions, mud flaps and nothing, I repeat **nothing** about Star Wars!

All of the news from [MotoringFile](http://www.motoringfile.com), plus the store about [BMW getting hit with 40m in fines](http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/cars/2015/12/21/bmw-auto-recall-fine-national-highway-traffic-safety-administration-nhtsa-mini-cooper/77694762/). As we spoke about a few shows ago, [MINI is scaling back it’s auto show presence](http://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/motor-shows-new-york-motor-show/mini-scale-back-motor-show-presence-2016).
