New Morgan owner in Dubai - 19/01/15 12:17 PM

Hi I just I would introduce myself, I took delivery of a 2011 Royal Ivory Roadster at the end of November, weather in Dubai is perfect at this time of year, although today it is raining. Absolutely loving the car, it was a toss up between an Aston and the Morgan, I think the right car won.

I guess you will be one of the few Morgan owners who drive with the hood up in the sunshine. I guess it would be too hot otherwise.

Welcome to the forum , there are no silly questions here , just ask away and someone is bound to be able to help you , or suggest another who can.

Welcome, I noted in an article in an Auto magazine this year that the local police have a range of supercars to keep up with fast moving traffic. Could they be adding a Morgan to the stable very soon.

A very warm welcome from cold Lancashire

Certainly envious of your warm weather - I think I'm developing Winter Morgan owner blues.

A warm welcome from Salisbury..
Actually a chilly Salisbury, with a hard frost this evening!

Haven't been to Dubai since about 1985...I suspect it has changed out of all recognition!

Enjoy the sun, sand and skiing..

Welcome to TM Steve.

Just tell me, is it true what I hear that people in Dubai don't like the Flintstones ?.........






.......but that the folk in Abu Dhabi do ?

hide Okay, I'm sorry guys - I know I've done that one before. My only defense is that it's one of my favorite jokes.

Re: New Morgan owner in Dubai - 20/01/15 02:04 PM

From October to May the weather is fantastic, sun block and hood down all the way. rest of the year diabolically hot and humid, so Boris will be wrapped up in an A/C,d garage with a weekly spin around the block to keep things

Welcome from a now wet Wales.
Have many miles of joy.
Watch out for the sun though!
A parasol will work up to about 10mph!
Ah....but it's a Roadster! No chance then!
