It would be nice just to say something, like 'sorry, but we do not provide discount', instead of no word at all....

I suppose they are not that much active on the forum...

RimmerBros just answered my question, and unfortunately they do not offer any discount to .org members.

Just needed some more time to them, as they participate to many forums and clubs.

They did not said they cooperate directly, but said that most of their customers are members of a classic car club or a forum, so they cooperate serving their customers to keep their vehicles in good shape.

They were originally a Triumph specialist! They have only done MG Rover parts a few years, after the Lincoln dealer went bankrupt and they got the francise from X-part. There was an article about them in MG Enthusiast!

The Lincoln MG Rover dealer did not go bankrupt (although I think had probably been losing money for some time) - Wrights was part of Lincolnshire Co-operative Society, and the last time I looked, Lincoln Co-op was still trading. Wrights was already scheduled to close from long before MGR collapsed (5 branches of Wrights had already been closed over the preceding couple of years).

The transfer of the XPart franchise to Rimmer Brothers was done in an orderly fashion as part of that closure process and Rimmers took on 6 very experienced MG Rover parts specialists from Wrights, so in spite of them only having been an XPart/MG Rover agent since 2005, don't suffer under the misconception that the MG Rover parts knowledge at Rimmers is lacking in any way .

I think, as they are one of the site sponsors (MG ZT/Rover 75 sub forum), they perhaps feel that they are contributing to us directly already.
