Sixt has pretty much revealed their Summer 2014 “Luxury” fleet. See separate post.
I have been looking forward to see new M3 (F80) and M4 (F82) in their summer 2014 fleet. And the good news is that Sixt will be adding both to their 2014 fleet. Bad news is that cars won’t be available until mid August beginning of September.
I’m not aware that any car rental agency in Germany (or elsewhere) has new BMW M3 / M4 in their fleet yet. There is still hope that new M3 / M4 will make to BMW On Demand – BMW Welt Munich fleet for this summer.
UPDATE (6.5.2014 13:00 CET): According BMW On Demand M3 / M4 will join to their fleet July/August (2014) timeframe.
None of the major car rental companies in Germany currently offers new BMW M5 (F10) in their fleet. However if you are going to Munich Germany (BMW Headquarters) you can rent BMW M5 along with other exciting BMW models like M3, 6-series Coupe / Cabrio, Z4 35i, 550i (F10), 335i Cabrio, 335i Coupe, 135i Cabrio, 135 Coupe, X5 M, X6 M. These cars can be rented from BMW Welt as part of BMW On Demand program. BMW On Demand is BMW’s Driving experience program and is offered exclusively at BMW Welt (Munich Germany).
How it works.
You can only book one month in advance
Minimum booking is one hour. 3 hour booking gives you daytime rental from 09:00 (9AM) to 17:00 (5PM) or nightime from 17:00 (5PM) to 09:00 (9AM) next day.
One hour rental comes with 150km per paid hour. Daytime rental (3 paid hours) or Nightime rental (3 paid hours) comes with 450km. Whole day rental (24 hours) is charged 6 hours and comes with 900 km.
Rental terms and conditions state that maximum rental time is 24 hours but you seem to be able to book longer periods – I dont know how they will handle these situations. But to rent for longer periods it probably makes more sense to rent from Sixt (M3 from 99 eur per day).
M5 09:00 (9AM) to 17:00 (5PM) costs 210 eur and comes with 450 km’s. (see example below)

All around price
List of currently bookable BMW On Demand cars below. This shows hourly prices. To get daytime or nighttime price (450km) multiply hourly price by 3 and daily (900 km) price (24 hours) multiply by 6.
This Ultimate Driving Machine has 420 hp and goes 0-100 km/h less than 5 seconds. Sixt fleet of M3’s have 7-speed Dual clutch transmission DCT. Gear changes are fast and you can use paddles for up/downshifts. And when down shifting you can hear throttle blips.
Sixt Germany has BMW M3 again this year in their summer fleet. M3 is available in selected stations in both Cabriolet and Coupe versions.
Prices start from 95 eur per day (99 for cabrio) for rentals at least 10 days. Price includes 250km per day. Daily prices for shorter rentals are higher.
4 days and 9 days rental are almost same price as 5 or 10 days. And in case of M3 Cabriolet you can get 5 or 6 days rental cheaper and more included kilometers for the same price (well 10 euros more) than 4 days rental. Pricing can change depending on which day your rental starts but usually weekend and 3, 7 and 10 days rental gives the relative best per day prices.
Additional kilometers 0.69 eur.
Airport locations are generally approx 20% more expensive.
