Probably not available if Rimmer's don’t have them, you’ll be relying on getting old stock oem parts. I wouldn’t be too worried about only oem, just go for good quality. DMGRS are popular around here provide good advice when buying, stocking a range of qualities in some parts.

All the genuine MG Rover parts are supplied by XPart through their network of resellers. As Rimmer Bros are an XPart reseller/wholesaler, if it is not available from them at all, it definitely won't be available from XPart - this leaves you needing to either search for a dealer/XPart agent with leftover stock still on the shelf or using aftermarket parts.

If Rimmer Bros web catalogue says "Out of stock, on back order" it means that they should still be in stock at XPart and they will have more stock at some point. If it says "No longer available", it means that XPart themselves no longer have any stock and have no plans to source/supply them in the forseeable future.

We are not helped at present because XPart are currently shut down due to the virus issues and have taken their partfinder page down, so you can't enter the part number of a part you are looking for and see if any XPart resellers are showing any still in stock. It also means that Rimmers (and the other XPart resellers) are unable to order fresh stock from XPart when they run out. Hopefully, XPart will soon be able to restart and supplies of available parts will start to come through again.

For when XPart start up again, the partfinder page is here: https://mgroverpartfinder.com/

As Rimmers are showing the 282mm front discs as on back order, I would assume they are something that will become available again.

Since Leacy Classics took ownership of XPart, my impression has been that they have had new parts manufactured for the MGF/TF that had previously been unavailable for a while, but they have done very little towards any of the other MG Rover cars, much less the older Rover Group cars. I am forming an impression that they are really only interested in the F/TF and that owners of the other models can go hang! I continue to hope that my impression is wrong, but without any real optimism :(
