Description

**I do offer delivery next to LAX; message that you require LAX Further instructions will follow. ** Experience one of the latest and greatest Electric Vehicles on the market! This is the innovative BMW I3, the world’s most sustainable vehicle from production to end of life recycle. This is a 2015 Giga World BMW i3 REx (Range Extender). It is an all Electric Vehicle with a total range of over 150 miles. Fully electric with the option to use gas to extend the battery range. Car will come with a full tank of fuel in the Range Extender and fully charged when picked up or at least 50% battery if delivered. Please return with at least 50 miles remaining between the battery and REx or you will be charged a $10 fee; or select the Pre-Paid Fuel/Charging Extras and not have to worry about it. A full battery will take you 70-80 miles, and the 2.4 gallon Range Extender generator will give you another 70-80 miles. If you can't plug it in, simply fill up the 2.4 gallon tank with PREMIUM UNLEADED and you're good for another 80 miles! You can continue to drive without charging as long as you keep adding fuel to the Range Extender. These totals are mainly comprised of highway driving. If you are just using it around town at lower speeds the mileage is a bit higher. This car is super fun to drive and very FAST! It handles like a BMW should. Car has carpool/HOV sticker so you can avoid that LA rush hour traffic. There are plenty of charging stations in and around Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego areas. Just download the Plugshare app on your phone to list all available charging stations. The car does come equipped with a 120V wall charger that can be plugged into a regular outlet. Common charging times (to full charge): 120v (wall plug) = 10-12 hours 240v (public chargers) = 3-4hours DC (fast chargers) = 20 minutes to 80% It has on-board gps navigation that lists all charging stations as well. Please ensure you re-fill with PREMIUM UNLEADED GAS ONLY! FastTrack transponder to get you all over the city much quicker! Please Note: - No Smoking, Drugs, Vaping, or Pets Please! Additional detailing fee will be applied. - All FastTrack tolls will be added to final charge. - Car is Washed, Full Gas, and Full or 80% Charge if delivered. VIN: WBY1Z4C59FV501875

Guidelines

Delivery costs are waived for all trips over 1 week. For LAX delivery, car will be parked at: 11500 Aviation Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90045. Car will be parked at this location, 5 miles from airport. Take an uber from LAX to that location and text me once you are at the car. Send picture of your driver's license and I will unlock the car. Keys will be inside center console. You may also choose to prepay for fuel, charging, and washing so you don't have to worry about it when you return the car. I only ask you return with enough range to get to a gas station. Any Question - Please call 562-301-1446. **Please no automatic car washes.** This is a very small car and the automatic car-wash brushes may damage the carbon fiber body panels. Hand-wash only or just prepay to have us deal with the dirty car upon return. You will receive a clean car at the beginning of the trip, with a full tank of gas and close to full battery, please try to return it the same way. Any evidence of smoke, pets, permanent stains will result in a detailing fee up to $250. Have a great day!

Faqs

  • Delivery includes both pick up and return?

    Yes, I will drop off the car for you and pick it up from you. You don't need to drop me off. I will arrange my own transportation.

  • What happens when I run out of electricity? What octane gas do I use?

    The i3 will automatically switch to the gas generator and run for another 70-80 miles on the small 2.4 gallon tank. The i3 takes Premium Gas only.

  • What do I do if I damaged the car?

    If the car is damaged please notify me immediately. If you let me know of the damage during your trip I can assure you I will do my best to make sure you are charged the minimum. If you do not notify me of damage upon return, it will treated as an indication of you not wanting to work things out. The damage will be reported to Turo and they will assess their fees (if Turo mediates the damage claim they will charge a MINIMUM of $500).

  • What should I do if I want to extend my rental?

    If you want to return the i3 early please contact me directly and I will arrange a way to get the car at your convenience. If you want to extend a trip, please request it through the app. I will always approve the request if the car is available.

  • How do I charge this car?

    You can easily charge the i3 with a standard wall outlet. Please download the Plugshare and Chargepoint apps to locate chargers in your area. SoCal has plenty but you need to plan a bit! Estimated charging time: Level 1 (120 volt): 10+ hours Level 2 (240 volt): 3-5 hours Level 3 (480 volt, NRG DC Fast Charger): 20 min to 80%; 2 hours to 100% We will also include the Level 1 Charger that will be located in the front Frunk. Level 1 charging typically take 10+ hours if the i3 is empty. Please take care of the included charger as a replacement is $400.00 While charging in a DC FAST Charger, the charger will engage the locking pin and only when the charge is complete or cancelled the locking pin will dis-engage. Please do not forcibly remove the charger at anytime as this can damage the locking pin and charger. There will be a fee to repair this as only BMW can repair the locking pin.

  • Where do I pick up if I land at LAX?

    For LAX pick up will be at the Aviation/LAX Metro Green Line Station at: 11500 Aviation Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90045. From LAX, get on the "G" Shuttle and it will drop you off at this location for free. Car will be parked at this location, 2 miles from airport. Text me once you are at the car and send a picture of your driver's license; I will unlock the car remotely once I receive your driver's license picture. Key will be inside center console. Please contact me to coordinate pick-up or drop off if any issues arise: 562-301-1446

  • Do I have to charge the car before returning it?

    Yes, the car needs to be returned with at least 50 miles left between the REx and Battery or you will incur a $10 fee. You may also select the Pre-Paid Fuel/Charging Extras and not have to worry about this.

  • Do I have to return the car clean?

    Car will be given clean, please make sure to return the car in same condition. Anything that requires more than a waterless wash and shakeout of car mats will be charged an appropriate cleaning fee. If car cannot be returned clean, we highly suggest to purchase the post-trip cleaning extra option. **Hand Wash Only** https://support.turo.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000808347-Cleaning-policy

Chris's BMW i3 was a blast to drive and showed me what it would be like to own an electric car. The car was clean and easy to drive. The only issue we had was getting it unlocked initially.(It was a Turo issue, not an issue with the car or host.) Chris went above and beyond to help us out though with the issue. I highly recommend him and his vehicle.
