Greetings all from a newbie,
I’ve been following this superb forum for a while and was hoping to make the Brooklands meet last weekend but my forum membership wasn’t live so I couldn’t find out where in Silvermere you were meeting up, in the end it looked like rain so I didn’t go on spec. (Yep I’m a fully paid up member of the fair weather motoring club)
I’ve just bought a M3W Brooklands (11/50) and live in North Hampshire UK.
Have to say I’m loving driving the M3W and the wife is happier now I’m off two wheels!
Looking forward to meeting some owners at some point.
Currently trying to get my head around essential “upgrades” the following are done
Cooling fan
All timing belt mods
Rear mudguard
My eyes are wide open so to speak and I’m particularly interested in how the Brooklands exhaust problems got solved as my M3W only had 350 miles on the clock since first registration in 2015 so i’m certain to be finding a few issues and the exhaust cracking seems to be a matter of when not if?
All advice greatly appreciated.

Welcome IMHO and hopefully we'll meet up sometime soon.

You are right in thinking the Brooklands exhausts may well crack at some point but until then the main thing is to get out and about as much as possible and get some (s)miles on the car drive

MMC did come up with a "final" fix involving beefed up mountings and a flexi joint but I've not heard how succesful that's been longer term. If/when they do crack then an option would be to get an independent exhaust company to weld them up - there will be plenty of advice forthcoming from the TM team......

Yup, a good set of motorbike waterproofs and a helmet with a full face visor will see you through almost any wet weather (one in a hundred year New Zealand torrential downpours excluded!).

Grab yourself some popcorn and read the thread in this LINK for everything you need to know about Brooklands exhausts!

Got the popcorn and read the entire Thread. Going back for more popcorn to find a good source of the flex joints. I know that Mini Cooper uses one in its exhaust path and I am sure others use a flex joint. I am hesitant to try and get them from Morgan since the communication and the international tariffs would make them more hassle than its worth.

Maybe popcorn and a good single malt to make the search more palatable.

Whats the O.D. Of the current standard pipes?

IMHO, I think it only reasonable to ask you to stay away from sharp instruments and hand over your belt and shoe laces before you get to the reading.....

Skullmog, i’m Just below Farnham, however unfortunately next week i’m off to sail my boat.

BOAT = Break Out Another Thousand, and since my other hobby is my 1971 Norton Commando you will probably deduce that I frequently sacrifice myself on the altar of dubious “engineering” and you’d be right.

Wow what a saga on the Brooklands exhaust, ran out of popcorn. I see there’s a new support bracket arrangement so i’ve Contacted MMC to see what they have to say about the logic? I think i’ll then go see a specialist before making my move, there’s one called Magnaflow near Heathrow that looks interesting.
