I think someone was on an optimistic way.

Yes they do, and it's only Morgan's that affect me in this way. Just 7,000miles on it..

Rene, optimistic is right I wouldn't want it as a gift.

I think they had a first try of the repair and beat the parts more or less in shape. For the first try to work with alloy it’s not too bad. Than they realize that to work with alloy is a special thing and also the chassis is damaged.

Weird, lots of outward lumps in the wings suggesting someone has spent considerable time trying to knock the dents in the bodywork 'out' doh

Brings these words to mind..dedicated to all Morgan PlusSix owners, everywhere

Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust
And another one gone and another one gone
Another one bites the dust
Hey I'm gonna get you too
Another one bites the dust

I have driven 2 cars with the BMW B58 motor. My M140i and the Plus Six. I disliked both... for the way the power was delivered and the ride quality.
The M140i, even with BMW's complex drive management software aids always felt like a vicious animal that wanted to bite, but at least it gave notice.
The PlusSix, without any drive management and 400kg less mass was like a Rottweiler, restrained but waiting to bite without any warning.

The Plus Six could be a great car, in my view it needs a Quaife LSD and a full remap to change to way the engine delivers torque, moving the peak from 1250 rpm to something like 3000 rpm and making the power delivery more controllable..just like the Plus 8: they have similar bhp, but totally different torque delivery. It is the sudden massive torque snap and lack of traction control that makes the PlusSix so vicious in the hands of the unwary.
One web source claims that the B58 engine will deliver 600-650whp and 550-600wtq on the stock block and internals... so it is already at a low state of tune.

Might be even nicer with no turbo....
Or 2 fewer cylinders...
Oh, that is the PlusFour.

Very sad to see any cars in this condition, let’s hope there have been no seriously injuries.
