If I recall you mentioned before about possibly creating exhaust manifolds/systems for Aero's - slight thread drift but did that ever materialise?
I'd love to replace my manifolds/cats upto my Librands with something a bit nicer..

Does any of the MMC publicity state that these will, or will not, be road registered?

The way the advert is couched leads me to be believe they will be Aero 8 continuations with a power boost but road registered, I haven't read anything else to the contrary is all I would say.
We have factory employees on here that could maybe elucidate further.

John, there is a factory fix for this problem, not widely publicised for some reason, a 2 hour job, mine was done FOC under warranty and now fills like a 'normal' car.

I tried to get mine fixed under warranty back in 2013 and was told there was no fix available. They all do that sir!

Love to know how they finally resolved the problem.

These won’t affect the value of the last 60 Plus 8’s. If anything it’ll raise the value of them.

This new car will be in a different price bracket.

This new one would be my ultimate Morgan.

+1 I'd suggest going half with you but even then I'm pretty certain it's beyond me.

No I think the Toilet seats are for the Plus Six rather than the Aero model cars.
