Interestingly, PVH take a cut of the profits from selling parts. MGR has no input.Man in the Car said:Caterpillar only own the parts distribution. The parts themselves are made by a multitude of companies. Assuming they continue to trade, they will continue to produce the parts for as long as there is a worthwhile demand for them ie. as long as there are MG and Rover cars on the road in significant numbers.
In any case, quite a few parts are common with other manufacturers vehicles, so these won't be affected at all.
I would not see any problem with obtaining parts in the short term, and I think that even in 3 to 5 years, most parts will be obtainable. Mind you, my own experience of MG & Rover cars suggests that most will not need any (other than service parts).
