Posting from the Spartanburg Marriott!


I rented a car in Atlanta and drove to the GSP Airport. My dad and i made a brief stop at the Zentrum where we saw a new 128i owner drive off in his new Montego coupe (anyone here?). Kevin from Marriott then picked us up in a green X5 and we're just chilling here until dinner. More pics to come tomorrow!

I'm not trying to be a dick, but this made me laugh. Concern about the cost of a 1-day car rental when you're buying a $40k car just seems....funny.

seriously, not trying to offend. It just kind of made me chuckle.

This is how the rich get richer. You never heard about the man that visited a New York City bank to get a loan and left his Bentley for collateral. He came back two weeks later to pay off the loan and get his car back. The loan officer told the man that they never did figure out why a man of his wealth requested the loan.

He told them it was cheaper to leave his car at the bank and pay the interest then to pay for parking in New York City.

I'm not offended....and don't sell yourself short, without the dicks of the world, how would we tell who were the decent people?

Honestly though, you mistook "concern" about the cost for simple "curiosity" about what to expect.

yeah, I get that a lot. I think everyone else in the world must be extra sensitive or something.

no, but I did hear the one about the gas station in NYC that had n oil change special...You drop your car off in the morning, they change the oil, and you pick it up in the afternoon for $20. So some guy goes in every day to get his oil changed. The manager says to him finally "hey, you've had your oil changed every day this week. You know you don't need to do that, right?" And the guy says "yeah, but where else in the city can I park all day for $20!"

well, to prove I'm not a complete dick and because nobody has answered your question...

It's about $180+ to rent the car in Atlanta and take it to Spartanburg.

You basically get to pay $150+ for the privilege of dropping the car off in a different location from where you picked it up. I know that I've driven between two large cities and not had a fee that high, so maybe it's just because it's a smaller airport or something.
