Hello mates, I just bought a brand new (47 miles), never registered, 2016 Morgan 3W SuperDry Edition. I pick it up on Monday and am really looking forward to it.

Good luck with car John, I am sure you will enjoy it. I would be interested to hear though when it was actually built as I thought the Superdry and Gulf editions were based on early cars, i.e. pre 2014 after which the factory spec improved considerably in terms of reliability.

Thanks for the welcome. I have been a TM member since I bought my 1995 4/4 in 2009. Just new to the 3 wheeler. The salesman says they got the car in 2016 or 2017 and it sat on the showroom floor. The serial number is for a 2016 model and the car has the updated chassis, cooling kit and steering. It was sitting next to a 2013 3W and there are other differences with the front suspension that I noticed on comparison. Does the car have a plate showing the month and year of assembly? If so, where would I find it? I can report back on Monday when I pick it up, It does have the new car 30/30 warranty.

Thanks for reply on spec John. Good to hear it's the 2014 on version when multiple changes were made. Difficult to confirm specific month of production but have a look at this latest post on registry thread which maintains a list of TM'ers new M3W's against chassis and VIN number, although it's not consistent after first year or two of production. Chassis number is stamped onto frame that supports right hand seat squab BTW.

FWIW I ordered my new M3W very late 2015 and took delivery April 2016. AFAIA the availability of special edition models had ceased by then hence my comments.

The VIN number is SA9M32851GP202091. I will check the chassis number on Monday and report back. Once I get it home I will send the info to the registry thread as well.
