Now it is really rainy, MrsMarkMas has decided she wants to rent a convertible for a week, so she can see if she wants to buy one. She is probably thinking MX5, rather than Aston, but we are flexible. Any suggestions for hire firms, ideally in the Bristol / Birmingham area?

While they don't have many convertibles, I have had good experience of Sports Car Hire in Shrewsbury - I took their Granturismo out for a long weekend, while working on persuading my wife that we should own one.

In convertibles at present I think they have a Caterham 7, a Lotus Elise Supercharged, a Morgan Plus 4 and a Ford Mustang V8.

Nice selection if the OPs wife is a car person, if not, I wonder what 3 cars would put her off convertibles more than 3 awkward to get in and out of leaky Brits and a the big and brash loud yank tank :D

I would have thought that Mazda or Fiat dealers would let you have a weekend test drive, mate of mine just had an I8 from BMW from Friday evening to Monday morning
