I'm collecting my first ever Morgan on Friday, a 2012 75th Anniversary 4/4. As it's fitted with the 2 litre engine it is essentially a narrow bodied Plus 4.

Being totally new to Morgan ownership I probably have a thousand questions, but in a nutshell - what are the do's and don't of Morgan ownership?

Many thanks

Go to Talkmorgan website.
www.talkmorgan.com
Also go to your local Morgan club meets/events.
Have a good chat with the dealer you are buying from.
Just spotted you are in Milton Keynes. Allon White dealer supplying the car? If so they are a top dealer. I bought my first car from them. The6are nearby so easy to get to. I travelled from West Wales to get mine. Train to MK and they picked me up from there.

Another nice todoo is ask to see under a car up on a lift to get a guided tour. Ask about greasing suspension....a VERY worthwhile thing to stay on top of.

Thank you for your advice. I shall try to get to meetings etc. as much as I can.

Good to know that Allon White are a respected dealer, they've been ok so far. I shall be going to them for servicing in the future as they are relatively close.

Here was my Plus 4 2.0 I bought new in 2006 from John Gills in North Yorkshire, which have long gone.



No particular advice other than to enjoy it, they are not like any other car to drive and attract a lot of positive comments. Worth investing in an Accumate charger.
