Bad Godesberg (Germany)
Platinum
Booked: VW Golf
Received: BMW 740d Xdrive

That's my best one ever, and will be hard to beat. Very nice car indeed, enough torque to pull the moon out of orbit. Cruising at 230 km/h on the Autobahn, steady as a rock and silent as a grave.

London Victoria
Platinum
Booked: Audi A1
Received: VW Golf Diesel BlueMotion thing

Hadn't received an upgrade for a long while but was given a slightly dirty Golf with no screen wash by a very moody branch manager who had the dirtiest blazer on i've ever seen. Great car though!

MAD (Madrid Barajas - Spain)
Platinum
Booked: Volkswagen Passat Break Diesel Manual
Received: Volvo V60 D5 Automatic

Really fine station wagon, suited great. Curiously, the D5 proved more fuel-hungry than a 730d I rented some time ago. Attentive and helpful staff at SIXT (online & offline). Very nice female attendants, both pick-up & return.

Overall, a very nice experience for a very competitive rate.

Nice small upgrade, especially the car had navigation system incorporated, which was perfect for me.

Munich City Center

Booked: BMW X1 Auto
Received: Mercedes E 220 CDI SW Auto with navigation

Explained that I could only drive automatic. First was offered BMW 1 series but it was too small for us. Got the Mercedes instead :-)

London Edgware Road
Platinum
Booked: VW Golf
Received: Mercedes E250 Cab

The very helpful guys at Edgware Road mentioned my status when they upgraded me to a very nice silver fully loaded Merc E250.

Shame I only have some boring motorway work to do this weekend in the rain!

Thanks Edgware Road.
