"Just to say my MX5 arrived as expected and I am enjoying it so so much. I had just moved companies and recently gave up my company car, and had a difficult task of finding an alternative. After speaking to a friend (Oliver Lissimore, from virtualitdept.co.uk) he recommended I contact Direct Cars UK after meeting you at a BNI Networking event. After looking on your website, which was so easy to use I contacted you directly and was kept up to date by emails on certain offers. In February 2011 I received an email containing details of a hot offer for a personal lease on an MX5 convertable, which was too good an oppurtunity to miss. After applying for the deal online the contact from yourselves was excellent. I was kept up to date appropriately, and any questions were answered swiftly (fantastic customer service, first class). Within 2 weeks I received delivery and now my 7 year old daughter and I are enjoying the freedom of the open road:) Thank you". Tom Brown - Worcester
