Question Good/Reputable place for luxury car rental?

Hey all,

I'm taking a vacation to LA and would like to rent a Boxter, SLK350, or similar convertible. I've found Midway and Beverly Hills Rent-A-Car, but the BBB makes them look a bit shady? Are they? Any places you'd recommend?

Thanks,
BoB

I rented once from them in Santa Monica. I see they're around 17th & Santa Monica Blvd. Didn't there used to be one in the Marina on Lincoln near Mindanao or thereabouts? That place always had nice exotic cars, too.

I believe that is correct. There were some exotic cars there, if I am thinking of the same place...

It's more or less by the Ralph's between Bali and the 90 on the West side of Lincoln.

Looks like it's going buh-bye. Just got this email...
