BMW M550d (LPAN) - BERLIN RENT

Sixt says:
class: LPAN
MODEL: Premium class e.g. BMW M550d Limousine/Touring *NAVI* or similar.

Does anyone know what is similar to that? What other car may I get? Is it possible as platinum an upgrade to a superior class(m3/m4,etc) complimentary ? Any idea how much a paid upgrade to a m3/m4/m5/mb amg would cost?

Found info in the german car rental forums, it's only the m550D, either limo or touring.

I don't think they will offer an upgrade to a higher class, as they are the premium vehicles. But for the upsells, it depends a bit on the given day and manager and.. When I had an XDAR resi with quite low price for a week, they wouldn't even offer to upgrade me to any M-series car. Sorry can't give you any exact numbers, I'd say anything between 30€ and 100€ per day (got upgrade for 30€ to M550D two years ago from LDAR = BMW 5 series).

Didn't have any complaints about it between Düsseldorf and Frankfurt. Nice driving all the way!

0-60 mph in under 5 seconds. I think you'll be OK.

Never got chance in catching this category. Waiting for 2 years now :-(

But switched to X5 M50D, same engine, bigger car. Great car but... not really the one.
