    Comments are open!
    After a 2 week delay that was 100% my fault, I am proud to deliver the latest episode of White Roof Radio. Getting started with news and MINIUSA on again off again manual transmission status is finally updated, for reals, to no longer offering a manual transmission on any of the models. Of course, details on getting one can be found at MotoringFile
    Gabe also just wrapped up his stint with the worse named MINI in the history of MINI; The Untamed Edition. The short version you hear, for the full review, including video, can also be found at MF. By the way, Untamed is worse than Untold, don't listen to two weeks ago db, he was wrong.
    Moving on, we all agree that the R53 is the G.O.A.T. Chad does school us on some gotchas that can come along with owning an old MINI. Gabe is looking really hard at getting an R53, but that could change. What do you think he should get?
    Special thanks to the extra technical info provided by Chad! Are you looking for the sunroof drain fix? Detroit Tuned has your covered!
    From the archives, when we talked to Randy Webb during Woofcast 9 when Todd learned what adiabatic expansion was. By following that link, you will find that episode 9 has been restored! And, as mentioned, you really can't beat watching James May reassemble anything, especially a Honda Monkey.

    MINI is Going Electric

    MINI is Going Electric

    Starting off reminding you that MotoringFile.com is the only source for MINI Cooper news. If you disagree, or prefer to get MINI news elsewhere, please, let us know. Also, we have all pretty much stopped using X/Twitter and can find us on Threads (and, in my case, Mastodon too!). Before getting into it, this is your reminder that there was a brand new episode of Black Roof available, 100% free of charge!
    Ok, with that out of the way, click over to MotoringFile and start scrolling. I recommend that you start with Gabe's hands-on review of the MINI Cooper Electric, then, check out his take on the Electric Countryman. From there, go where you like to get ALL of the information about these two MINIs. There is a ton, photos, specs, everything to make your MINI nerd heart happy!
    And, we promise the next show will be for us OG MINI people to talk about the R cars and cool stuff being done by our man Chad at Detroit Tuned and MINIs on the Mac (Spoiler: they did not break the record). It will be hoot!

    The Electric MINI is Dead. Long live the Electric MINI

    We woke up and realized that it's been quite a while since we last made a show. So, let's get right to it since I'm also terribly late getting this one posted! Kicking things off, a quick reminder is that there is a new episode of available to download.

5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

As a mini lover and a mini owner, I was SO excited to find this podcast!! I’ve had 3 minis in my lifetime and have loved every one of them.

My good friend just purchased her first mini. It’s been her dream car since high-school. She’s 50, works as a registered nurse, has raised 4 kids and is just an incredible human. She loved mine so much that she started looking, got a 2024 convertible and has not had one regret.

Whenever I get into my mini especially with the top down, nothing else matters and it’s my happy place.

Speaking My Language

This may be my favorite podcast. As a soon-to-be JCW owner, it’s great to find this show. Going to work my way through the shows on here, and hoping they continue!
