Club Member Discount with XPart

#1 Post by GTiJohn » Mon Nov 11, 2019 5:40 pm

We are very please to announce that we have arranged a 10% discount on MG Rover parts with one of the UK's largest supplier, Xpart.

Image

You should phone them on their exclusive hotline during normal office hours of 8:00am until 4:00pm Monday to Friday.*

You will just need to have your club membership number handy so they can confirm you are a club member.

Please tell us how you get on with this offer

* edited to be 'hotline only' until their current review of their website is complete.

Could one of the "several projects" perhaps be online access to an EPC, given that Rimmer's are stripping NLA's from their web version?

But great news that they've formed an active link with the Club!

I just tried the hot line for a part for my Rover 75 and although they were not able to help they this time they were 100% on the ball and extremely helpful and pointed me in the direction of a supplier that is not part of the discount deal but does have the part available. This was Rimmer Bross.

Glad to hear that Xpart helped you find the part you needed.

Rimmer Bros are separate company and an XPart dealer but they are not participating in the members discount offer.

Do we know if parts ordered directly are posted out or for collection from the Xpart dealers?

I suspect it is direct delivery only at present until the network are set up.

Good news - after being down for a revamp, the MG Rover Partfinder is back online - https://mgroverpartfinder.com/

In this new format you use the form for less than 5 different parts and email them if you want more that 5. They'll get back to you within 48 hours.

Don't forget to tell them your club membership number to get your 10% discount :clapping

Not so good news that the original functionality to query the stock database and discover local stockists has gone.

It doesn't change the stock situation and it gives you a single source for your enquiry.

If enough people enquire about Unobtanium (offside), will they consider re-stocking?

Probably, if they can make a profitable sale :)

Many people are finding it difficult to find exhaust systems for our cars but XPart have a surprising number in stock.

For example they have just restocked on R8 K1.4 downpipe (WCD10227EVA), intermediate section (WCE10175EVA) and rear silencer (WCG10005EVA).

Recently they were also able to supply a complete system for a 216 R8 and the member saved more than their club membership fees :clapping
