Go see it in build if you can ..

I spent 3 days down at the Factory when my 4/4 was being built in 2014..a very special and unique experience in the automotive industry I believe.

So glad I experienced buying new at least once..your first born is always special !!!

Hi new Morgan owner
Will be at factory on 28th February when FMT will be in the trim shop. I might tell them I’m great with plastic hacksaws cutting leather.... 🤣
Are you sleeping in your garage tonight?

Due to the distance and work I can only get down the once and by the looks of your schedule she should be at the carpets, interior trim and screen fitting stage. Fingers crossed she has left the paint shop coz I would imagine you can’t get to see much. I will take a paint brush with me just in case.

Just wanted to let you know your suggestion registered and was used today to get home. Not been on this road near Market Harborough end before and have to say it was a great recommendation. Just wanted to say thanks very much Paul F.

Kind regards

- Sorry I missed this message earlier - I don't have heated seats, and the heater is very good. Driving solo, it's good to have half the tonneau cover to keep some of the heat in!
