Whilst I can’t provide any info on the order of existing cars that are being fixed, I can offer some additional insight in that my new Plus Four order will be delayed by 2 months in total. Originally due for factory completion in mid July, this is now mid September - an initial delay due to the radiator issue has now been extended due to the brake recall. For the record I’m fine with this as would rather Morgan dedicate their limited resources to resolving the issue for existing owners but hopefully this provides some comfort that they aren’t just prioritising new builds over anything else.

How about this for an interesting discussion, following the brake recall? Will CX Chassis Morgans increase or decrease in value? On the minus side is the possibility that many will sell their Plus Fours & Plus 6s as they are fed up, thus probably reducing the value. On the other hand, supply from the factory has stopped and thus must increase the value of existing cars. We all know that the value of second hand cars has increased over the last couple of years due to lack of supply of new vehicle. What do chaps think?

FWIW I think in six months time it will be history and the market will be unaffected.

The myriad problems surrounding the M3W seem to have left their prices unscathed as far as I can tell, including the engine supplier dropping off the horizon ! and owners struggling to find spares.

I think the PLUS FOUR is an exceptional car. Radiator and brake problems will soon be forgotten, if MMC deals with them effectively.

You have to hope so because the Plus Four auto is a great car.
