Description

Sir R is like Jon Snow – humble, greatly admired, and can handle any situation you throw at it. Outwardly, it looks like a common VW Golf, with the exception of the quad exhaust, 19" Pretoria rims, and more aggressive stance. This car is for those who don't want to draw attention to themselves. Under the hood, however, sits a potent 296 horsepower, 280 lb-ft torque turbocharged powerplant eager to pin your body against the bucket seats. He drives like a pure sports car, guaranteed to induce an ear-to-ear grin. On top of his Sir R's athletic capabilities, he has the luxury appointments one would expect from a top marque. Leather seats, a bass-bumping 8-speaker 400-watt Fender audio system, auto-everything (adaptive cruise, adaptive headlights, wipers, lane-keeping, high-beams, dual-climate temperature), and sensors galore to keep you safe (blind spot monitor, front and rear collision avoidance, and parking assistance, to name a few). As a handsome 4Motion AWD hatchback, he's got junk in the trunk and can go anywhere including snow and ice. The R is great for those looking to experience gobs of fun canyon carving, cruising to their favorite winery, or conquering Tahoe. The VW Golf is a perennial Car and Driver favorite. The Golf R escalates the standard Golf to perfection. Enjoy. Note: I am selective when approving renters based on driving history and age. Experienced manual drivers only. Shhhh... - 0-60 in under 5 seconds - 6-speed manual transmission - 292 horses - 280 lb/ft torque - All-wheel drive - DCC: Adaptive suspension with performance changing selectable modes. He's a gadget geek: - GPS Navigation (never get lost even in cellular dead zones) - Apple CarPlay / Android Auto - Keyless entry and push-to-start (keep that key in your pocket) - Frameless rear view mirror (like the difference between Gucci shades vs. Costco glasses) - Sirius XM satellite radio (for the long road trips passing through no-mans land) He's got all available creature comforts: - Fender audio: 8 speakers, subwoofer, 400-watt amplifier - Adaptive cruise control (automatically keeps your distance behind the car in front of you) - Heated leather bucket seats (to keep you locked in during a spirited drive) - Auto temperature controls (customize your comfort temp) - Auto high-beams (turns off automatically with oncoming cars and back on when passed) - Rain-sensing automatic wipers (let her worry about the weather) - Backup camera (extra eyes where you need them) - Hill hold (for those impossible SF hills) He'll keep you safe with all that power on tap: - Lane assist (keeps you in your lane without input) - Blind spot assist (never be surprised by someone creeping up on you) - Adaptive lights (turns when you turn) - Front and rear collision avoidance (warning tones and auto-braking) - Parking sensors (for those tight city spots) Beware side-effects: giddiness and a sense of euphoria. // QUESTIONS?

Parking details

Please park the car near the pickup location in a spot where it is safe to park for 12 hours, with no towing or time limits. Message me if you have any questions about where to park. In the Bay Area, never leave things in the car that can be seen. Chances are good that someone will break into the car to steal what can be seen, even if it's not valuable. Not meant to cause alarm but figured you should be aware and safe.

Guidelines

Unique to this car --------------------------- - UNEVEN ROADS: Drive diagonally up/down driveways and dips to avoid scraping the bottom. Frequently asked questions ----------------------------------------- Q: Why rent from us? 1. We are centrally located in San Francisco, within day-tripping distance of all the major sights. 2. We strive for 5-star service to ensure you enjoy the car and have a wonderful trip. 3. Our fleet caters to both car enthusiasts and people who want to travel with style. The cars are newer (2017+), immaculate, and cleaned on a regular basis so you’ll look good wherever you go. Check out our 5-star reviews and see for yourself! Q: Do I have to return the car clean? A: I recommend adding the "Post-trip cleaning" Extra to return the car worry-free. Otherwise, please be mindful of the renter after you and return the car in the same, clean condition. Dirt, mud, hard to clean floor mats, food, or liquid spills will incur a cleaning fee, per Turo’s policy. Q: Do I have to refill the gas before returning it? A: Not if you choose the "Prepaid refuel" Extra. Otherwise, please refill the 91 Premium gas you used and leave the receipt in the glovebox. Q: Can I drive extra miles? A: Not if you choose the “Unlimited mileage” Extra. Otherwise, you will be charged for extra mileage at the rate specified for your car. Q: Can I use FasTrak bridge tolls? A: Yes, use FasTrak lanes for quicker passage - the toll gates will scan the license plate and charge the toll to our account. We will request reimbursement through the Turo app after the bill arrives, with no markup so you pay what we are charged. Q: Should I add insurance? A: Check with your personal auto insurer to see if they will cover your Turo rental. Please note Turo’s policy: “With the exception of the Premier protection plan, which is primary, all other protection plans are supplemental which means they apply only to the amount that the primary guest is obligated to pay out of their own pocket after all sources of insurance available to the primary guest or an approved secondary driver (whether through a credit card, personal automobile, or other policy) have been exhausted and paid.” Q: Can I pick-up & drop-off the car earlier or later? A: Please update your reservation to reflect your pickup time as accurately as possible. You may pick up the car one hour before your reservation. If you are returning late, please request an extension in the app. Turo requires this to maintain active insurance coverage. Keeping the vehicle outside of an active rental may result in a penalty charge as well as personal liability for any damage to the vehicle. Q: Can I smoke? Can I bring pets? A: Please no smoking or pets. Up to $250 may be charged if the car needs a deep cleansing. Q: How do I get a 5-star rating? A: I will always leave a 5-star rating if you return the car in the same condition as pickup, communicated your pickup and return status, refueled before return, and pay for tolls and extra mileage. Please treat the car like your own and be mindful of the renter after you! Q: What if I have other questions? A: Message me and I’ll help you the best I can!

Davy was so proactive and awesome. Made it uber easy to get the car and return. Car is clearly VERY well taken care of and maintained (which unfortunately you can’t say for some other rentals on Turo), so that was much appreciated. Would rent again!

Tim B.Jun 17, 2019

Davy made it so easy, and the Golf R is just too fun

Sami A.Jun 15, 2019

It was an absolute pleasure renting a car from Davy. He couldn’t have been more helpful and friendly and his VW Golf R is a blast to drive. If you’re in San Francisco and can drive a manual, Davy’s Golf R is the car to rent. It’s the perfect mix of power and practicality. And did I mention it’s insanely fun to drive! Highly recommend renting with Davy. You won’t regret it!

Francis B.May 26, 2019

Dario V.May 26, 2019
