"Martin, the owner is a friendly and helpful chap. His team know MX5'S inside out and will give you honest advice and good quality repairs. They also have great stocks of new and used parts plus accessories. I will keep going back to them. Highly recommended!"
"Just a thank you note for a job well done. Think I chose the right day to collect. Dry run home with top down from halfway after a picnic lunch. Exhaust note also sounds great, especially on walled country roads. Classy! Many thanks again to you and your team."
"Hi Martin, Thanks for a no fuss deal on my recent part exchange. Already covered 200 miles in my "new" MX what a super little car. Thanks also to the lads who fitted the wind deflector there and then, great service and thanks for sending me the spare key post haste. This kind of customer service is worth the 140 mile round trip."
"Hi Martin, The car arrived safely home this afternoon, and I wanted to just let you know how pleased I am with the work that the team at MX5 City has done - many thanks."
"Many thanks to everyone at MX5 City for restoring my 'Monaco'. It looks absolutely beautiful. It's a car which has given me a lot of pleasure over the last seven years, and is in regular use - I travel about 3,000 miles a year in it, and every trip is a pleasure. I'm delighted to have the bodywork back in first-class condition, and I notice that an unexpected bonus is the way the windows are now a lot easier to wind up and down! Thank you also for giving it a test drive for me to get an idea of its mechanical state. It's reassuring to know that there are no immediate concerns. Thank you also for all the interesting pictures of its restoration in progress, which I'll keep as part of its history. I'm very impressed (and amazed) that all this has been possible within the space of about two weeks. I have a story to tell at this point. I took my MX5 to a local classic car bodywork repairer early in the year to get an idea of what might be involved, and to get an impression of the business. After a cursory look around under the car by the proprietor, I was told that the work would take about six weeks, and that money would be needed 'up-front' at one or two stages. I noticed that there wasn't much activity going on in the workshop, and that there were several cars in various stages of repair - quite a few were gathering dust, and looked as if they hadn't been worked on for a while. It's worth mentioning that I wasn't invited into the workshop to look under my car and discuss what would be needed. Needless to say, alarm bells clanged very loudly. Contrast this with the thorough professionalism and high standards at MX5 City - yours is easily the most impressive classic car related firm I've ever been to, and it's been a real pleasure having my car repaired by yourselves. Clearly it's a good idea to have work done on classics such as the MX5 by a marque specialist. You know your way around the MX5 thoroughly - how the body is put together, where the rot spots arise, and how best to repair the ravages of the years. I would recommend MX5 City to anyone. With best wishes for your continuing success"
"Please thank your team for the work that they have put into the repairs to our MX5 Mark 2.5. To the replacement brakes on the near side, replacement rear wings and chassis structure to front end. The work looks to have been completed to a very professional standard, and both the collection and delivery/return of the vehicle went without any problems what-so-ever, given the exceptional circumstances of the Coronavirus Pandemic.
"I had been thinking about restoring my Mk1 Merlot for some time. Trouble was finding the right guys. If you have the same thoughts look no further. Martin and his brilliant team know MX-5s inside out, bodywork,paintwork, mechanical. They are passionate about these lovely little machines and their end product is testimony to their experience and hard work. I couldn’t be happier with my perfect little Roadster and now just need some sunshine. I can recommend without a moments hesitation. Expect to wait a couple of weeks as there is good reason, these guys are in demand."
"I'm just writing to say just how happy I am with the car, it is everything I was hoping for and more. I would also like to say thank you for your superb service, as you got the car ready and delivered in amazing time. If I ever need anything more for the car, I know where to go to. All in all, I couldn't be happier with the car, service and everything in between, and I'll be happy and proud to display your company on the registration plates."
"Ordered items arrived safe and sound. Fitted a treat..........Thank you for the quick service. Keep up the good work."
"Just wanted to let you know that the parts we ordered arrived this morning all in excellent condition, everything was very well packaged. Also, the delivery service was fantastic, we were kept well informed of the whereabouts of the parcel and it arrived on time here in France. Marvellous service, thanks very much!"
"Please convey my thanks to the team for a job so well done. The paint match , fabrication , sealing of internal panels , butt - welding , restoration , wax-oiling and anti-corrosion treatment are all so evidently of a very high standard. I am absolutely delighted. Thanks also to the MX5city team for arranging a brilliant driver's seat upholstery repair, the restoration of the alloy wheel set, the MOT and ancillary issues . There was an awful lot to do and you and your team have done it ! More importantly all the work has been carried out to a very high standard. In many respects it has very much been a situation where the 'phoenix' lived up to it's name . Rest assured I shall keep in touch and continue to recommend your services. Here's to another 17years of Phoenix motoring ! My very best wishes to you and the team."
"I'd like to say a very big special thank-you to you all for the excellent service I've received from you all and more recently getting the carbon fibre dashboard and centre dash and door panels. So all thanks to you as you've helped me restore my MX-5 Mk1. Yours thankfully and sincerely"
"Great, wonderful magnificent service on my MX-5. Every last detail perfect along with the steering wheel being in the correct attitude. Instruments are great too, along with the new suspension settings, thanks a million."
"Thank you very much for the work done. You lot are amazing, my MX5 is what keeps me going every long 5 hour joyride at a time!"
"Just wanted to thank you for your excellent service. I placed an order yesterday and it was with me this morning. Super service I shall be using you for all my future purchases for my Mazda"
"Great job done on my MX-5, not the cheapest out there but worth every penny. They stuck to their original quote even though they ended up spending more time on it than expected. Sent me pictures through various stages of the work which was nice. Would 100% go back again."
“I thank you for the vehicle I purchased. Although I had a speedometer problem on my return to you this was sorted very efficiently and in a short time. I cannot complain about your customer care and service provided. Well done, thank you and I hope to carry on using your service with my vehicle”
“HI Martin. We're arrived to our home yesterday night on 9 o clock, the engine running great during the return trip no oil consumption or any knocking noises. I'm actually around, 450 miles and i'm obviously going to do the oil service tomorrow before the "controle technique". Thanks for the job you and your team have done. Best regards Frédéric.”
“Just a note to say a sincere thanks for the excellent job of Waxoyling my MX5 Amazon yesterday. Being new to MX5's I was very happy with all the help and guidance that you gave me to help with my deliberations about getting a hard top. I will get the experience of Winter behind me and enjoy as much top down as possible and then make the decision. I am impressed to see such dedication and straight talking will be back soon”
“I got my wind deflector today. It was really quick to arrive. The item looks really nice, and customer service has been great. Thanks again. kind regards, Kelly.”
“Just want to thankyou for the excellent job you did on replacing my car door, was thrilled with the outcome. Much appreciated Josie”
“Hi there just a quick thanks for sending me up that small clip. Such a small thing and I am sure it took a little bit of time for you taking it off. I am really grateful to you for doing this and pricing up the correct part and taking the time to write out some advice. This is my first contact with your business and I have to say it is impressive and it will not be my last.”
“I would like to thank Martin and the team for the work completed on my Mk 1 MX5 Harvard which included fitting a new hood and a new clutch. I have had my car for fifteen years and am very particular where I have work done. I wanted to ensure that the work was completed to a high standard by a garage that knows the MX5 inside out. My new hood fits beautifully and the old one was the original part so was due for a change ! The original clutch was also replaced after 120k miles as well. They were very professional and completed work on time and to quote. Thanks again”
"Hi Martin, Just a thank you for getting me the car of my dreams. You were right when you replied to my enquiry when you said you had the perfect car to suit my requirements. It does and more! Delighted with the car and the service by you and your team. Many thanks again"
"Thank you for the swift service. I have now received my order good quality and most impressed highly recommended thank you one again."
"Just a thank you to say what a lovely car it is. I had forgotten exactly how great they are to drive, it’s taken us both back to the 90’s! Thanks for everything."
"Hi Guys, Speedo now working perfectly, nice and smooth, checked against sat-nav and only 2 mph out at 80. Great job (and the waxoyl) seriously pleased. Thanks."
"Good bunch of guys with plenty of advice and tips. Reasonable pricing and high quality of work. Only wish they were a bit closer to home."
"To Martin and Team. Just a thank you to you and your guys for a job well done, instead of looking average it looks a gem as far as I'm concerned and hopefully any more big layouts of cash will be purely cosmetic or to improve handling. So once again thanks for a good job. Positive comments will be reflected with all things MX-5 I get involved in."
"I do not normally bother with reviews but the service i had from martin and his guys at mx5 city when i was down and out and in despair with a failed theft on my mx5 was simply some of the best and most generous displays of great customer service i have ever seen. After an email enquiring about cost of repairs he called me and offered to collect the vehicle when i explained i couldnt get it to them as it had all the ignition electric area ripped out after thieves cut through my roof and tried to steal it. They then collected the key from me at my workplace and were happy to recover the vehicle from where i live and took it back to their headquarters. Amazingly the vehicle was then all repaired and fixed on the same day and then they dropped it back off at where i live at no extra cost. The best service i have ever received what a great company. Going the extra mile for a client in need i will have to say well done to everyone. Fantastic. You dont get service like this these days it was so pleasant to see and for all my future needs and if i ever get a new mx5 it will be from mx5 city they are fantastic!"
“Hi Martin, Many Thanks for a Great job done on the Car. Not to hear the old bonnet vibrating when the car is ticking over is like a dream. Rob”
“To, Martin & Richard, A big thank you for arranging and fixing the central locking fault on my MK2, MX5, it took Richard about 5 minutes to sort it and I very much appreciate it being free of charge. As you may remember from our chat before Christmas I've just been up to the Highlands of Scotland to my daughter's wedding last weekend, the car has been faultless and pulled like a train having done over 1000 miles in 4 days, what a car these MX5's are! I will, without hesitation recommend you and your company to any MX5 owner I meet. Regards, Glenn.”
“I just want to say a massive thank you Martin! You have been the first person that has helped me after making numerous phone calls and sending various emails! If I have any more problems with my MX5 I won't hesitate to get in touch and bring my car to yourself! Thank you again Kind regards Siân"
“Very keen prices, good quality products, excellent service and swift delivery. Despite an issue which was in no way the fault of mx5city, the problem was solved most professionally, very fairly, and extremely quickly. I highly recommend this company and will certainly be using them again as my first choice for supply of parts for my mazda mx5 roadster.”
“Hi Martin, thanks for forwarding the pictures of the work done on my car. We are very pleased with the result. I have recommended you to a few people already with mx5s! Regards, Christine.”
“Dear Martin I have this afternoon taken delivery of my resprayed Mariner Blue Mazda Eunos and to say that I am overjoyed is a serious understatement! The superb standard of workmanship, the attention to detail and the care taken by your colleagues, together with their commitment to doing a proper job, are clear for all to see. Thank you so much and please pass on my very best wishes to Richard and your other staff for a fantastic job well done. Thank you also for all the photographs of the “work in progress”. Best wishes Chris S.”
Chris S. Wakefield “Hi Martin Just wanted to feedback how pleased I am with the new suspension – everything you claimed is true – brilliant. Regards Steve (Gaz Gold Pro suspension fitted by MX5 City)”
“I ordered a polished stainless radio surround for my mk1 yesterday & it arrived this morning first thing. Great service & thank you.”
“Hi Martin, nice to meet you yesterday. The car went brilliantly down the A1, I’m used to driving MGBs etc that don’t like being revved but the little MX5 revs like the clappers but it doesn’t seem to be under any stress. It went fine at 70 ( 4,000 rpm ) all day long. So many thanks for everything and I hope you don’t mind if I ring up the odd time for advice. All the best. Tony”
“I really appreciate your attention. It’s good to work with people like you, much different from what I’m used to in my day-by-day. Hope to deal with you again one of these days.”
“I have nothing but praise for the service I received at MX5 City. Martin and his team helped me choose the right car for me with honest, practical information to help me make my own decision. The after sales service was (and still is) fantastic and left me feeling a valued customer. It is a pleasure to deal with people who are passionate and knowledgeable about their trade. Honestly the best used car buying experience I have had.”
“Just wanted to say thank you for such good service. Two mazda dealers I contacted over a week ago about parts still have not even replied to my query. I am really impressed with your service, from your help on the phone when my online order went wrong, to your very precise emails about when my order would be received. It is so nice to deal with efficiency! Many thanks!”
“Thank you so much for a helpful and very fast service! Parcel arrived the next day as promised. I shall definitely use your company again, its better than the more local ones.”
“I have had 2 cars from MX5 City and both times it was good. They have mended one of my windows and replaced the other under warranty without quibble. They changed my tyres on my 1st purchase before I got them as they had mud and snows, even though I never knew what mud and snows are. They repaired paintwork that I didn't even know they were gonna do (small scratch and a chip on the bonnet) The car came back looking immaculate. When I turned up for the car they showed me round the car and showed me things that they thought deserved doing even though I didn't request it. My second car was just as good and I fully intend purchasing from them again. Fully recommend MX5 City”
“Had a new roof fitted at MX5 City recently. Workmanship was excellent, after sales communication also excellent. Clearly intent on pleasing the customer and keeping them. Know their product and happy to oblige. Shall certainly use them again. Good guys! Thankyou. “
“Good Old-Fashioned Service! Bought my MX-5 from Martin just over a year ago. Saw it before it was prepped; Martin was down my way and therefore delivered the car for me just for the petrol money. Really enjoyed it over the summer; got many envious looks. Thought I'd wait to review though until my Mr Hard-to-Please MOT tester had checked it over after a summer's use. He found just nothing - not even an advisory. The car is great - and MX-5 City was great to buy from.”
“If you own a Mazda especially an old one, this is the place to take it to for good quality workmanship and reasonable pricing. I have had numerous work done on my 21 year old Mazda MX5 by this garage and the work has always been of a high standard. The guys are really friendly and know what they are doing. I travel out of my way to this garage because it is so reliable and you can trust them. If I need to buy a Mazda in the future I would definately consider buying it from MX5 City.”
“I have just had major bodywork done to my Eunos Roadster S Ltd and I am very pleased with the results. I had the rear passenger wing and sill section cut out and replaced as shown in their web site. Also I gave Martin the owner free range to repair the dints ,scuffs etc that have been the result of over 17 years motoring. I also had some old headlight covers refurbished ,sprayed and fitted . The results were much better than I expected and the owner seemed genuinely pleased with the results as I was. The bill I received was broken down so I could see where the money had been spent , also photos were taken of the work in various stages of the process and given to me. No fuss was made about the work and no unneccessary work carried out, although I had given a free hand. Many thanks.”
