The workshop is run by Steve Darvill [ex HHC workshop controller] who has over 17 yrs TVR experience. Full Diagnostic facilities for all models inc. current are available together with a comprehensive stock of spares. MOTs, tyres, spring and damper upgrades, exhausts, dash refurbs etc are all available together with service and repairs to factory specifications. Jon said:

As many members may have seen, there has been a thread running on Pistonheads for about 24 hours regarding the fact that TVR London appears to have closed.TVR Spokesman Jason Oxley has today confirmed with the TVRCC that this is in fact correct. He said:
"We have not had a central London dealer since HR Owen and this was a trial for a short term to determine whether we ought to again. It was a therefore only a short term let. We have decided that we do want to have a presence there and we are hoping to sign the contract on our new premises in the next few days. There will be an announcement in the New Year".
As soon as we have the details, we will publish them here. Please remember though that TVR London and London TVR are two entirely separate companies; London TVR continue trading from their Kings Cross premises.
Unfortunately, it is necessary for our current Treasurer to leave this role by July of next year and, therefore, a replacement is being sought to commence early next year (to allow for overlap and liaison). This is a key role and requires a person with financial or business experience of accounting and accounts.
For more details please see this month's issue of Sprint or the General Discussion Forum in the members area.
