Description

Welcome and thanks for the your interest in driving Tito the 2019 AWD Golf R amped with a Stage 1+ Cobb tune and intake. HP pushing high 300s with acceleration that makes the Porsche owners (wink wink) sweat bullets...BAM! This undercover beast is controlled by an intricately-engineered 6-speed manual transmission and clutch that is surprisingly light and smooth. Paired with the various driving different modes, Tito is tons of fun on any [non-dirt] road.....race mode with tight steering, stiff suspension and a nice growl out the back...comfort mode for quiet and smooth highway cruising...and custom mode for whatever combo you want. Tito has very dark tinted windows which accent the gorgeous black and white colors. Fully loaded with power seats, Apple CarPlay, heated seats and “that vibrating steering wheel thing” (ie lane change control) and cruise control auto distance (autopilot controlling the distance behind the car in front) to enhance its safety features. 4 doors, surprisingly roomy backseats and a huge trunk, especially if the back seats go flat. (Note: I once transported a grill home from Lowe’s!) Easy pick up location in East Austin, about 10 mins from the airport and less than a $20 Uber from the airport. If you are local and just thinking of changing cars for the weekend, you're more than welcome to park right outside my home. The car is fun and exciting to drive, but please treat it with your care and be aware there is a tracker in the car. Removal will incur a $250 fine. It is prohibited to take this car to the track or to engage in unsafe, reckless driving. If it is found that you took the car on a track there will be a fine in excess of $1,000, excessive wear on the tires will also be monitored and incur a fee. Tolls will be charged after the trip. Be safe and have fun! NOTE: When requesting to book please send a message with your experience driving manual transmission sports cars as well a general idea of where you plan to drive during the course of the rental.
