Yes, you can rent these cars. You may have to fly out here to San Francisco if you don't already live in the area and make a little vacation out of it. They don't have every trim level, but this is a nice service to sample everything all the way up to an R8 for some extended behind the wheel time.
Two miles is definitely not enough to test a car. If you can't rent/test the exact trim you plan to order, you can drive another model with the same engine/seats etc. For example I never test drove an RS5 before buying one, because there were none on the lots, but I test drove an S5 as a close approximation and figured if I like it, I will like the RS5.
