Re: RENTING S4/M3 in Europe? Help!

We usually try Sixt Budget in Gemany. A8 sport was fun! Not sure if
tiptronic counts as 5 speeds!! Alternative is Avis who have some fun cars.
Try the numbers below, they are Duesseldorf, but act as central reservation
or will give you another - usually Munich - number

00 49 211 94 29 70 Sixt
0049 211 35702 Hertz

sorry lost Avis, but those two will give you the number if they cannot help.
Normally they can speak good English. You only problem might be that they
won't rent a high performance car to a non German resident. In the past my
wife - who is German- has made the rental with me as the named driver!!

Good luck, but see my other posting on caravan drivers and relative
