BimmerCast #24: It\’s MINI vs BMW with Whiteroofradio (+ BMW News)

Big show tonight. We invited our good friends from Whiteroofradio (the MINI podcast the is arguably the most popular independent automotive podcast on iTunes) to talk BMW and to talk BMW vs MINI. It ‘s a throw-down and I think it ‘s pretty clear who the winner is at the end.

We also talk BMW news. The 1M of course followed by some diesel talk (if you want to know what the next diesel BMW NA is bringing, listen), our 550i review and of course we talk about the new Frozen Grey Edition M3.

But what about the new front wheel drive BMW and how it relates to MINI? We dive into this with the WRR guys and talk about the challenges BMW is going to have sharing a chassis and engines.

Finally there ‘s the 24 Hours of LeMans. Not BMW ‘s finest hour and we dissect what happened and why.

    When will this be available to download at iTunes?

  • Just download it and sync it to your ipod. Gabe: So since the 1M is going to be such a limited it run 8months? I would have to go on a wait list if I want to get it?

    Great episode! Tons of fun from people from whiteroof!

  • @ JS Yoon- I have been recommending that people get added to several wait lists since this car has been discussed. While there is not set number of cars that will be produced it will be limited as a percentage of total 1 Series sales. With that being said this may not be a car in all that high demand- it is debatable on how many people really want an all out performance model that does not also provide over the top luxury… personally I would be all over it.

    Would I pay a premium over sticker- nope but at the same time I would get my name on a list somewhere at least. Most dealers will see a few of these before production is halted.

    Typically great show guys

    Still loving the news about the 1M (agree with Michael that it needs its own music lol).

    BMW and LeMans was a big misstep for BMW Racing, I am hoping that next year they develop the car to handle the race a tad better.

    One thing about sharing items between the 1 series and the MINI though is that I am really hoping we will not see MINI become larger and heavier.

    This episode should now be showing in iTunes for everyone. There was a minor mixup when it got posted that has been corrected.

    Hey guys,

    I’m enjoying the episode. My download from iTunes was cut off at about minute 27 though. I don’t know if that’s a download problem or if it relates to the file that got uploaded to iTunes. Also, Gabe’s audio level was really low in comparison with everyone else. That said, thanks for the show. I really enjoy your commentary.

    Love the podcast. Thanks for putting it together. Two questions: 1. Any way to better equalize the sound? I echo other’s thoughts that Gabe’s voice is always lower.

    1. What is the intro song?
