Description

There is not one other VW on Turo in Austin that's anything like mine. I have heavily customized this vehicle. What you are looking at is a one-of-a-kind truly *HOT* Passat. This car is my baby, full stop, but I can't just keep her to myself. "Riding in this car is more fun than going to a music festival." —Actual quote from a girl I'm dating. This ride has been upgraded with a BIG turbo, an APR Stage 1+ tune, an APR Stage 1+ transmission tune, much larger brakes than stock, a racing-grade air intake that makes the most beautiful wooshing noise you've ever heard, and dozens of little visual tweaks throughout the exterior and interior. No, it does not have an obnoxious exhaust. I promise, this one is a quiet, progressive kind of fast. Two important rules for my car: absolutely no smoking of any kind, and you must bring your own insurance. If you smoke in my car, I'm going to charge you for cleaning. If you do not bring your own insurance, you won't get the car AND I'm going to charge you for improper booking. Don't say I didn't warn ya! For everyone who knows how to drive, has their own insurance, and loves some German auto: Come and get it! 🇩🇪

Guidelines

I'm allergic to second-hand cigarette smoke, so that will be a no-no in this vehicle. Dogs and cats are also not allowed. Bring it back clean and unharmed. It runs best on premium fuel, 93 octane, and you will notice the difference between that and regular unleaded (especially if you use Shell V-Power). Don't shortchange yourself, this thing really pulls on good gas. Oh, and touchless car washes only please. That's all!

Obi Wan Kenobi is my favorite car to rent and drive!!! Heck, I've rented it twice, and have not even given any other vehicles a chance. This car has the style, power, force, and fun that keeps me coming back. I saw a kid as young as 7 y-o do a double-take when checking this car out. He's a beauty 😍 💕

"Obi Wan Kenobi" is a force to reckon with. I enjoyed fun, fast, and smooth ride. "Obi Wan Kenobi" stole my heart ❤
