This station has a great car selection!

Good to hear! I will likely rent plenty of one-ways from there, drop them off Monday morning at the airport. Hope to make such a good experience as you.

Again, got the BlueMotion TDI version - no issues, great car (wagon). Economical and can carry loads.

Once more, a good experience with SIXT. :-:

This is a franchise location. Absolutely not up to Sixt standards. My second Sixt franchise experience. Both times terrible and absolutely no comparison to the usually very good "normal" Sixt product.

Please dear Mr. and Mrs. Sixt, stop franchising or make sure your franchisees more or less keep up to your company's usual standards!
On the Canary Islands I have had the same experience with Hertz. Avis appears to be the best franchise over there but still its better not to expect anything of a high standard for some reason...

I was told that Platinums do not get upgrades in the US, only in Europe.

US is not franchise but directly Sixt. therefore German "rules" apply.
upgrade for platinum: subject to availability.

See my post in the other thread. That is not what I was told and upgrades were, indeed, available.

just because they wanted to sell you a higher class does not mean there would be a free upgrade available.
for the higher price they may have to get a car from a different station.
there are a lot of other possible reasons.

Dresden, Germany (some place in the city)
Platin
Golf class (CLMR), no extras
Audi A6, 3.0d LIM with everything...

The lady (I assume station manager) asked several times if I would really return the car to the same station tonight which I assured (my hotel is across the street) since she has a reservation for the car tomorrow...

^ I love the car and of course it is even better for the price of a VW Golf.

Munich Train Station
Platinum
Booked: FWAR (3 Series SW)
Received: PWAR (E Class SW)

Nice upgrade, even if not as spectacular as some others here: I got an automatic E200 CDI - but at any rate, it was very economical. And comfortable, with plenty of space for skis & board & all gear for two.

Equipment was somewhat odd - the car was set with the low-end GPS unit, but had the full adaptive lights (+auto high/low beams) and interior LED lighting for example.

Parked right next to the Merc, a 5-Series (520d) SW was a surprisingly tempting car, with the large twin glass roof, high-end nav and head-up display as the most noticeable equipments retained. But still, I don't mind having been granted the Mercedes, as I had not taken this new E version for a spin yet.

So, overall, I'm happy and grateful for the upgrade, for the rental, and will rent again with SIXT pretty soon (Madrid again).

It surely is an upgrade in size. The car has the same engine though and is heavier No complaint though, just sayin
