Sounds great
When I took my trip last summer in June, I had reserved my car months in advance through their website. At first the 2017 m3 was listed at $74 US dollars per day. This was a guaranteed model so to me that was a plus even at that price. After my reservation was set I got a couple of email adds from them running discounted specials on rentals called early bird discount, so with this I emailed them and asked if they could change my price and they did. With this discount it dropped it to $54 a Day. To me that was an outstanding deal I couldnít pass up.

Also being one of their guaranteed models itís a higher line so instead of standing in the long rental line like everyone else, they wisk you away upstairs and get you checked out way quicker and off you go out the side exit.
Sixt was easy to deal with and would highly recommend to anyone needing to rent a car in Europe.
That's crazy cheap. I'll be booking stuff end of feb more than likely. I have a trip to Bali in May I need to figure out first

Well Sixt has cars and while I thought I was gonna get a good deal on the first screen they pile on $200 worth of "fees" right before checkout

Key word... "or similar".... if you notice there is no guarantee you will get a BMW. You could get an Audi A3 SB, VW Golf VII, Alfa Romeo Giulietta or similar premium car.

The one way fee is what is killing you.

I had to do a load of trips to Germany for around 6months a few years ago

from experience depends who you rent from and where you go to if you want a specific car

I flew alternately into Stuttgart and Munich and nothing but Mercedes in Stuttgart in the premium end - even when I asked, or paid to upgrade, all I got was a bigger car, E180 estate was the worst!!

Munich the split was more equal, still Mercs, mainly A class and E, but 3 or C class or then the new A4 readily available being "home" to BMW and Audi only just up the road too

I used SIXT or AVIS depending on deals and 8/10 got a BMW if I asked for one from SIXT, AVIS mostly mercs or Audi - always as good as new and most cars had very few miles

they have loads of choice and always keen to offer an upgrade - had a lovely G30 for a few days and plenty of F30s and an F36 once

did once get a 911 from Hertz in Stuttgart for a 1 day trip there, changed my return flight and dropped it off at Zurich in the end instead, not entirely sure I remember the meeting
