Audi A6 Quattro
A few weeks ago, a friend recommended I join Hertz #1 Club Gold. His reason was simple - you can walk out of the airport, read your name on a board, jump in the car and go. No talking to anyone, just get your rental car and you're on your way. It sounded like a good idea, so I signed up.
Last week, I went online to reserve a car for this week's trip to Mountain View. I chose the cheapest car, and was subsequently prompted to choose an Audi A6 from their "Prestige Collection" for less money. I went for it.
This morning I hopped in the car at SFO and was immediately impressed. It's probably one of the nicest cars I've ever driven. It's not as fast as the Cayenne Turbo I drove for a week in Florida a couple years ago, but it's certainly a slick car. You can even talk to it to get it to change radio stations and such.
It's too bad I only have the car for one more day. I'm heading to TSSJS tomorrow night in Vegas. I wish there was a way to cancel my flight and drive instead.

I live in Germany and by chance have an Audi A6 quattro 3.0 TDI (230hp). However I wonder from all the quotes like "very fast car" and "not as fast as Cayenne Turbo" how fast you guys _really_ drive. I remember the legal speed limit never being more than 75miles/h on my last stay in Florida. An Audi with a decent engine should easily go 150mph - 160mph; not even to mention the Porsche :-)
Once a cop caught me by radar going 87mph instead of 75mph and he was _really_ pissed. I was lucky still he still was a nice guy and let me get away with it *phew* :-)
What would he do if you pass his shitty little cop car with 160mph?
So, hey, how fast do you really go?

Actually it is much safer to drive as fast as you can past kindergartens or schools...
Less time in dangerous area -> lower probability of having an accidents
