Stuttgart Airport.

Rented LDAR, which would mean BMW 5er or an E-Class and got an XDAR Mercedes Benz S350. I assume this would be the upgrade thanks to my Platinum status.

Nice car, never drove an S-Class before. Only drawback, it took me about 2hrs to get familiar with the technology...

I always get a BMW 650i at the Munich Airport Station no matter what i reserve. Have a Platinum Sixt card and Centurion AmEx. But seems to be getting rare with those expensive cars. Local rental stations usually dont have expensive cars anymore.

WHAT ???
Those kind of updated couldnt be expected even for Diamond-card holders.
Sure it was a M3?

I really had several phantastic upgrades with Sixt but never was handed out !the M3.
Quite sure mate. Because a) I know my cars, b) it said M3 in quite a few places and c) you can't half mistake the roar of a V8 and 420 bhp for anything else!

Liked the XF more than the XJ - am seriously considering buying one. The BMW 530d is a seriously nice motor too!

Any experience with Gare Montparnasse in Paris? Picking up a CPMR, what are my odds of getting a BMW 1-er?
