New member here in Indiana, moving to Maine. Would like some help in building out a M3W in willow green. Any thoughts on an interior color other than tan that would be equally proper?
I'm a previous Lotus owner ( Elise, Exige s260 sport, and Evora ) and looking forward to driving a classic sports car along the coast of Maine with my wife as we retire. Any suggested options or dealer recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks!

Get the paint code color you like and have some mixed on a bottle for you to apply to a piece of metal or wood and then carry that color card around to see what looks good with it.

I had a willow green E-type coupe with a black interior. It looked great. I have seen "suede green" with willow green and it looks good too. I have a dark brown interior in my 3 Wheeler that i think would look good with willow green. There is a green 3 Wheeler with Heritage Trim at Morgan Morgantown, West Virginia right now. It just finished up on ebay with reserve not met. It's a nice looking car. You may be able to get a deal now, with it being December.

Cuba leather looks good with that colour, also sage green would be a very green look.

Green & tan pleated leather would be a good traditional combination.

The colour combinations don't matter much, as an ex-Lotus owner you want to be looking at the performance upgrades. I would suggest you start with some better exhausts and maybe cams and matching ECU. Some improved shock absorbers would also help as you will not have anything close to Lotus handling, I know I had an Elise S1 111S, Europa S and an Evora. Blockley front tyres also help although there are better options for performance, such as Michelin Commander II.

Welcome to the World of Morgan! For a dealer I would recommend Northshore Sportscars in Lake Bluff, Chicago, www.northshoresportscars.com Norb is the owner and really great guy who will help you through the process and beyond, Keith is the engineer and you can't go wrong with Keith (both Norb and Keith have raced Morgans). I have known them for many years and they both have dealt with my 3 Morgans.

Welcome Dr Jay. I'd consider the heritage dash for its glovebox, the windscreen for touring comfort, and heated seats. The body-color mudguards and/or faux radiator might be a nice and rarer option too.

I regret not getting the glovebox dash, but the heated seats and full windscreen are great.
