My M3W was returned to me today, exactly 15 months after it was picked up due to Morgan's abhorrent 'upgrade' parts quality. Satisfying to know that this might be the only M3W with a Centa journal rotating surface that wouldn't make an oil seal manufacturer cringe.

I'll post some more pics, especially of the fuel tank reinforcements, when I get a chance.

Interesting comparison, having the two three wheelers side by side...

I bet that Ace is more refined.

Hmm, refined can mean many things...

I would say the Morgan is more civilized from a drive-ability aspect.

The Morgan is also much quieter at idle, with the G56 mufflers, and gets louder with right foot, but never as loud as the ACE.

They're different in different ways but it's fun to be re-familiarized with the Morgan's traits and compare them.

I'll have to eventually choose one, since having two three-wheelers is a bit silly, right?

Well, I'm definitely going to keep the ACE, and may end up keeping the Morgan too. I'm lucky to have such a tolerant wife, but she has said that I can't say no to a rea$onable offer.

It's funny to think about what is in my garage now...

OK designed then; I was going to use 'made by' but my '03 R53 MINI was made in England per BMW's engineering.
