XPart says it has saved 4 out of 5 cars destined for the scrap heap

XPart is slashing the price of high value mechanical parts for MG Rover cars suffering a major mechanical breakdown.

The company wants to slow the decline of the MG Rover car parc and hopes that if repair costs can be brought down fewer cars will be declared total losses.

It previously focussed on price reductions for crash repair components but is now extending cuts to engines, gearboxes and cylinder heads.

“If a car is in danger of being written off due to major mechanical failure, we will consider offering price reductions for the basket of parts required,” said Roger Clarke, product planner.

“The more MG Rover cars we can save, the greater the number of cars available for continued servicing and repair.”

XPart claims to have saved nearly 80% of damaged MG Rovers in danger of being written off since launching its cost reduction scheme in 2006.
