Woofcast #579: Let’s Try Again Using The Term Affordable

We are back from our end of year holiday break and feeling excited for 2016! Of course we start by talking about weather, like we like to do. News from MotoringFile, an Ask Chad question, car talk and exciting events! It’s going to be a great year gang, and we hope you stick around with us for the whole bit.
Links? We’ve got a few of those for you this week. [MTTS 2016](http://www.miniusa.com/content/miniusa/en/owners/community/mini-takes-the-states.html), [Southwest MINI Fest](http://swminifest.com/) and the wrecking yard part finder [car-part.com](http://www.car-part.com/).

Woofcast #580: Would You Like John Varvatos or Vince Camuto?

Big show this week. **BIG** show! We have tech updates, we have news from MotoringFile.com and Chad lays down the knowledge! Not only that, but we found some minor issues with the new owners lounge and reminisce about the owners lounge. Plus so much more.
Don’t forget to check out [BimmerFile](http://www.bimmerfile.com/2016/01/13/bmw-at-the-naias-the-full-photo-gallery/) for all of the NAIAS coverage. You can also find some great photos on [Gabe’s Instagram](https://www.instagram.com/gabrielbridger/).
We have a really big 2016 on deck. We hope you stick around for what is still to come!

Woofcast #581: Who is Anders Warmer

News from MotoringFile.com, including some talk about the new convertible, new transmissions and the new Clubman with All4. Not to mention some shocking numbers about the resale value of the F56. Truly shocking.
We are back from Vegas and a good time was had by all. We actually got to talk to Gabe about the new [company car](http://www.motoringfile.com/2016/01/22/the-motoringfile-2016-mini-clubman-cooper-s-is-here/) that we will be sharing next week. Plus a few other things as we are able to share them.
Don’t forget the sponsors this week either! [OutMotoring.com](http://www.outmotoring.com) has those awesome rubber floor mats and [CravenSpeed.com](http://www.cravenspeed.com) has those awesome all the things! Be sure to mention White Roof Radio when placing your orders. We really appreciate that and so do they!

Woofcast #582: Macaroni Salad and Supermodels

News from MotoringFile, including a visit by Gabe as we drove around Vegas in a Dodge Dart, Ask Chad and some programing updates. Oh, and we talk MINI advertising in preparation for the Super Bowl ad and this [story we found](http://www.thedrum.com/news/2016/01/27/you-don-t-necessarily-need-humor-cut-through-super-bowl-mini-s-head-marketing-tom) that we thought was interesting. Also it was pre seeing the actual ad.
Ask Chad links to help keep your MINI cool:
* [Helix Intercooler](http://www.detroittuned.com/helix-intercooler-gen-2-step-core/)
* [MINI Cooper heat shield](http://www.detroittuned.com/mini-cooper-s-hood-scoop-heat-shield/)
* [MINI GP Rear Diffuser](http://www.detroittuned.com/mini-gp2-rear-diffuser-kit/)
3 questions answered. Thanks for sending those in! If you had a question for our good man Chad, you know what to do. Watch also for this week’s [MotorTrend Audio](https://www.facebook.com/MotorTrendAudio/) podcast. I was interviewed by our man Charlie. It should be awesome! Easiest way to get that show is to subscribe in your favorite podcast client.

Woofcast #584: Kittens Sell Cars

Now that we have all, mostly, returned to the land of the living, we thought it would be a good idea to do a show. Todd, Chad and I doing what we do. Talking about MINIs and other cars. How about the way manufacturers pad the books to boost their sales numbers? And some talk about the demise of Scion. Oh, and Top Gear. Good stuff this week, we hope you enjoy it.

Woofcast #585: 4 bikes, 3 MINIs

Breaking our silence! There is a very good reason for that as Todd has added a Chili Red JCW F56 to his stable. And I added another bicycle. The bulk of the show is, of course, talking about Todd’s new MINI (also has the JCW Exhaust) and how much Todd is in love with it. He actually confesses that it is faster than the GP. I know, right? Drinking game rules in full effect!
We talk a little bit about the new convertible and how much Gabe is enjoying the Clubman. Oh, and the 4th bicycle, but that’s only for like a minute or two.

Woofcast #586: New Possibilities

Joined by (Mr. MotoringFile)[http://www.motoringfile.com] tonight, we discuss all things F56, including some new revalations Todd shares about his new JCW. That, plus safety results (awesome!) and Gabe compares the new Clubman to the JCW Roadster. You are going to like this one!

Woofcast #587: Clever Title Goes Here

With Chad out sick, Alex still adjusting to the cost of living in CA (and waiting for his show gear to arrive via donkey train, I think) and Gabe’s flight running late, Todd and I soldiered on. Talking about some good MINI stuff, like we like to do. We discussed sales, including [this](http://www.bmwblog.com/2016/04/04/mini-clubman-demand-outpaces-stocks/) about the Clubman, [Abby Wambaugh’s DUI](http://www.democratandchronicle.com/story/sports/soccer/2016/04/04/car-company-mini-re-evaluating-wambach-relationship/82626036/) and the lame attempts at April Fools. Really? Lambo doors **again**?
We also take a MINI to remind you about upcoming events and that the cool kids always register! [Southwest MINI Fest](http://www.southwestminifest.com) is in June, registration closes April 30th. [MINIs on the Dragon](http://www.minisonthedragon.com) registration closes April 28th and you should already be registered for MINI Takes the States. If not, get on that sooner than later too (listen in for why).

Woofcast #588: Alex and the $19 Bottle of Water

**Alex is back!** Since illness and other things kept us from making a show last week, you might think that we had a few things to say, and you’d be right. The boys were pretty revved up tonight, and I think it makes for a pretty great show!
Don’t forget, event season is just around the corner. Registration for [MINIs on the Dragon](http://minisonthedragon.com/) and [South West MINI Fest](https://swminifest.com/) closes soon. Don’t forget about [Mini Meet West](http://minimeetwest2016.com/) happening in early June as well, in San Diego no less!

Woofcast #589: A Day Late

Actually a bit more than a day late, but by show time, it’s a day late. It’s the new math. News from Motoringfile, shout-outs to you guys (thanks for all the feedback on the last show) and talking to Todd about buying a new car every week. Plus, would you rent your MINI, AirBNB style, to a total stranger? Let us know!

Talking about MINI Cooper stuff with Chad, Alex and Todd, like we like to do. News from Motoringfile as well as this story from the WSJ and this about pending lawsuits against MINI, plus a few other things. A great show if you ask me that you guys will really like!

Woofcast #591: My Fob is Smaller Than Yours

Todd, Alex and I talking more about what is wrong with MINI these days. There is a prerequisite for this show. Go over and read the [Hipster Malarky](http://www.motoringfile.com/2016/05/10/45864/) about the [new MINI Seven](http://jalopnik.com/the-new-mini-seven-is-desperate-hipster-malarkey-1775898328) first. It is truly some of the most ridiculous marketing materials we have ever read.
When you are done, take a minute to peruse the original [R50 Press Release](http://s3.whiteroofradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/MINI-Cooper-Press-Kit_-March-2002.rtf.pdf). Also, if you haven’t seen the Rebel Without Pause video, now is your chance.
Finally, make your F56 key fob a bit easier to manage with [this handy gizmo](http://www.shapeways.com/product/WKV35UNQB/key-fob-f56-minicar-rev-3).
Good show tonight. Please join us!

Woofcast #592: Listen to Han Solo

All over the automotive landscape tonight. MINI News, as usual, plus a few other things. Like how [this](http://jalopnik.com/automakers-dont-care-anymore-if-you-know-anything-about-1773074566) featuring the ridiculous BMW commercial (below). And more about how the [car show](http://jalopnik.com/the-auto-show-as-we-know-it-is-dying-1776911180) is dying. And a little about the upcoming [All4 Clubman](http://www.motoringfile.com/2016/05/16/45889/). That and we finally let Alex make a Star Wars reference!

Woofcast #594: Cut the Balls Off Your Car

Joined tonight by Mr. [MotoringFile](http://www.motoringfile.com), Gabe Bridger, we spend more than a fair amount of time talking about MINIs, like we like to do. There was the Car & Driver [long-term review](http://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/2014-mini-cooper-s-hardtop-long-term-test-wrap-up) of the F56 that Gabe took issue with, and that started quite the conversation. Talked about sales, and the ongoing trend of sales decreasing for MINIUSA and we finish with some Top Gear talk. What did you think? Let us know below!
Seriously, have you guys been to Outmotoring.com to [check out their wheel selection](https://www.outmotoring.com/mini-cooper-accessories/wheels_studs_locks_valve_caps_mud_flaps/)? Most of the factory wheels and only the cool wheels that actually fit the MINI. That’s where Gabe got the wheels that are on the current company car. You should check them out!
Finally, I expect [RideBikesRadio](http://www.ridebikesradio.com) to launch next week! Talking about bicycles with our man Brian Dallas. Stay tuned for that!

Woofcast #595: Model Year 2017 Changes

**Technical difficulties are keeping images from showing. We are still working on this.**
We were able to get a peak at what changes are coming for the upcoming model year! Price changes and changes to the options packages. Overall we are pretty pleased with them and we think you will be too. And Todd still doesn’t understand the ninja packages on the Clubman.
Thanks to everyone for all of feedback for Woofcast 594! Shout-outs all around!
[Ride Bikes Radio](http://www.ridebikesradio.com) has finally gone live!

It’s a weekly show where Brian Dallas and db talk about bicycles and beer and all of the things that go with!
Finally, stay tuned for Woofcast #596 if you are looking for the brake show. Apologies for the delay, but we wanted to get this information out first. Trust me, your patience will be rewarded!

Woofcast #597: Alex Buys a JCW!

With Todd busy getting ready for MTTS and Chad super busy at the shop, it’s just Alex and I this week, which is awesome since Alex just bought a 2016 JCW! Besides hearing all about (and me being disappointed that it doesn’t have a white roof), we talk about some of the news from MotoringFile. I also doubt that the US is getting a diesel. Again.
If you are going on MTTS, make sure to find our man Todd. He’ll have a selection of badges, stickers and magnets for the event in case you did not get yours in time from MotoringStripes.com.

We talk sales, or lack there of and other news from MotoringFile.com and a few others that we found over the week, including our take on Top Gear.

MTTSers, don’t forget about Detroit Tuned as you pass through Michigan this week! Stop by and say hi to Chad and hang out at the shop on your way to St. Ignace! If you are looking for something else to listen, we’d appreciate it if you could check out the latest show under the White Roof; Ride Bikes Radio. Talking about bicycles once per week. And beer.

The 600th spin around the podcast planet. 11th anniversary coming up August 1st. One might say that we have been doing this for quite a while. And we know that many of you have been with us since the beginning or close enough to call it that, and for that, we thank you!
News and opinion this week, like we like to do. We are confused by the sales numbers and we discuss Anders Warming leaving MINI. I think you will enjoy this one.

Woofcast #603: It’s Just Seepage

Chad tells us about the hot thing happening last week in Detroit; the Woodward Dream Cruise. Rumor has it there was even many El Camino's spotted. We do news from MotoringFile like we like to do, including some inside information about what Gabe thinks about the X1, especially how it compares to the Clubman. We'll get him back soon to give us more detail.
If you missed it, I'm bored of using press photos for show art and we are looking at you, the fine and good looking White Roof Radio listener, to share photos of your baby with us to feature as art for the shows! All you have to do is tag us on Instagram or Twitter or post it to the Facebook page and we'll do the rest! Get to tagging and we just might select your MINI to be the featured image. This week's featured MINI is Bruce (shown here in B&W).

Woofcast #604: Old Dudes in Lamborghinis

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](http://www.detroittuned.com)! Watch for more details to follow very soon, probabaly on the [DT Facebook Page](https://www.facebook.com/Detroit-Tuned-208432429182022/?fref=ts&ref=br_tf), so stay tuned!
Once we do get started, we direct you to the [MotoringFile X1 Review](http://www.motoringfile.com/2016/08/22/mf-review-bmw-x1-vs-mini-clubman/). 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](http://www.edmunds.com/car-news/2016-17-mini-cooper-clubman-recalled-for-airbag-problem.html) 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 [CravenSpeed.com](http://www.cravenspeed.com) 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!

Finally a new show after WRR HQ: Arizona relocation and we are right back to it. News from MotoringFile like we like to do, plus Alex tells us about his adventures driving his F56 JCW vs the 2nd Generation JCW GP. Plus a reminder about cold weather and tires, since it’s that time of year. And Todd snorts. And db builds a JCW Clubman. Warning to the affliates; we do go long this week.
Congratulations to Steve C for garnering show art for this week! Check out his very fine 2014 Cooper S Roadster with JCW exterior/interior (Red Raven) and 2015 Countryman S (Clifford)!

Woofcast #607: Make MINI Great Again

Back on track as promised! We start off by ruining the brand (so offline I can’t even share it with you here) and Alex is trying to make MINI great again from San Fransisco. And, no, we won’t be starting a political podcast. That’s what we get for recording the same nice as the VP debates.
Once that is out of the system, we do news from MotoringFile like we like to do. Plus we take a deeper than normal dive into sales.
Don’t forget to check out the new OutMotoring.com! New design, new layout, works awesome on all of your devices and still adding 3,000 new items every month! Also, thanks to Joe in Philly for this week’s show image of his first GP! Keep sending those in gang, we will keep using them!

Woofcast #608: I forgot to pick a title

Todd, Chad and I making a show for you guys this week. Starting off with over run from our sponsor spot talking about exhaust before getting into news. Sales, as usual. We are confused, as usual. Also, who’s in for the electric Hybrid MINI? Let us know.
  • Tesla increasing it’s lead in the US
  • GoMotoring.com is coming soon (the joke that never gets old).
    Looking for the shot of Todd’s MINI with the JCW exhaust? Let us know and I will get it uploaded so you guys can check it out! Also, stick around for Woofcast 609. We’ve got some great questions in the Ask Chad queue that we are going to clear out!
    Shout-out to Pedro for this week’s show art! Want yours to be featured? All you have to do is upload a photo to our Facebook page or give us an @ reply on Twitter or Instagram. Make those high res too. It’s not a competition, I pick what I like, and might go way back or grab a new one!
    Another shout-out to our very fine sponsors: OutMotoring.com and CravenSpeed. Both have hot new sites, both are chock full of amazing products for your MINI. Both work awesome on your phone, so click over any time!

    Woofcast #609: The Countryman Show

    Todd and Alex and Gabe join me shortly after the 2017 Countryman information hit MotoringFile and we spent over an hour talking all about it, including a fair bit of time on the plugin hybrid version. Short version, we all like it, mostly. Maybe we found a few bits that you missed, maybe you found something we missed. Comments are open, what do you think?

    Woofcast #610

    A new show for you guys! Full crew this week catching up with Todd about SEMA and his overall disappoint with the show this year. Probably because it was truck year, go figure. We also talk about the JCW Clubman getting the JCW Sport Exhaust and Todd reminds us how to modify it to be on all the time. Finishing up with some talk about car play and the Chevy Malibu, plus my most recent post at dbmini.
    In case you didn’t hear about this on Facebook, Detroit Tuned is now carrying the Dinan Tuning Kit for the F56! Check it out here, including detailed installation instructions. Yes, this is a DIY MOD!
    And don’t forget about the fine sponsors of Whiteroofradio and MotorFile, those would be our friends at CravenSpeed and OutMotoring.com. They have everything you need to make your MINI better, faster, stronger, cooler, cleaner, all the things. Don’t forget they have been supporting us since we started, which means they have been supporting you too! Just be sure to mention us when you check out and maybe toss in a thank you!

    Woofcast #611: #dbwasright

    Todd’s MINI in the shop and his default snow car is a convertible. I’m getting ready to do brakes on my car and deem the R56 to be fairly fall-aparty. The new Detroit Tuned shop is **almost** ready! And Alex is getting a [CravenSpeed Platypus Mount](http://www.cravenspeed.com/the-platypus-license-plate-mount-1/) so he stops getting tickets from the Communist Socialist state of California.
    Plus a ton of news from [MotoringFile](http://www.motoringfile.com), including everyone _mostly_ agree that I am finally right! As well as a shout-out to the boys at [Motor Trend Audio](https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/motor-trend-audio/id858864150?mt=2) for getting to show 100! Congrats fellas!
    Finishing up with some talk about The Grand Tour, Fords and JCW Clubman. We think you guys are going to enjoy this one!

    Woofcast #612: The New Todd

    Full crew for our last show of 2016. Joined tonight by Mr. Bridger from MotoringFile and Brian Dallas from Ride Bikes Radio to talk new Countryman, in car tech, sales and a little bit about autonomous cars. Note to the affliates; we do go a bit long this week.
    Did I say full crew? I meant full crew minus Chad from Detroit Tuned. He was excused in order to finalize the moving in the new DT shop! Don’t forget to stop by and check the place out (and snag a few photos for us while you are there!).
    As mentioned above, I am giving everyone the rest of the year off! We hope you all have a safe and happy holiday, no matter which one you celebrate! Do keep an eye on the feed next week for a fine selection of holiday music that I hope you all enjoy.
    See you in 2017!
    xoxo ~db
