Description

This is fun to drive, and a sleek looking car. With BMW’s version of all-wheel-drive, (x-drive) and offering around 320 HRSPRS, along with a twin-scroll turbo, this will certainly have you take command of the road. Inside you’ll find dual climate controls, fully electric and adjustable comfortable leather seats, which offer adjustable heat for when it’s cold out; (a heated steering wheel too). You’ll also have a choice to use BMW’s iDrive System, or the aftermarket Apple CarPlay/Android Auto interface. For listening to tunes, this BMW comes equipped with the top of the line Harmon Kardon system. Lastly, the car’s air intake, intercooler and charge pipe were just upgraded. (As a reminder, this is a (standard)/manual transmission car. The road is yours to ride in style and comfort with this rare version of a BMW!)

Extras (7)

Add optional Extras to your trip at checkout.

One-way trip

US$130/trip

Hammock

Enjoy some relaxation.

Cooler

Loaded up with ice, and an assortment of sodas, water, and some snacks. Just leave the cooler in trunk upon trip ending.

US$25/trip1 available

US$85/trip

Prepaid refuel

Save time, make drop-off a breeze, and avoid additional fees by adding this Extra, which allows you to return my car at any fuel level. Price includes up to a full tank of gas.

US$54/trip

Post-trip cleaning

Return the car hassle free, without worrying about cleaning up after your trip. Does not cover upholstery cleaning, spills, stains, pet hair, or smoke removal.

US$18/trip

Parking details

If you aren’t a local and don’t want to Uber/Lyft or taxi to the car’s location, you can save money by paying $2 to take the Metro Blue Line towards US Bank Stadium, get off at US Bank Stadium and then transfer to the Metro Green Line, towards Saint Paul. It’s just another 10 or so minutes till the stop where the car is.

Guidelines

NO smoking. Vaping Ok. NO pets. If possible and convenient, before returning the car to take it through the car wash at any Holiday Gas station. The vehicle is equipped with an RFID tag on the windshield, so you just simply drive up and press to accept “The Works Wash”. I fill up the car with Non-Ethanol/Non-Oxy Gas. If you can please fill the tank using that, as it is preferred. If you need information on stations which carry it, please let me know! For my safety (and potentially yours) while driving, a forward facing Dash Cam is in the car- it’s at your discretion to utilize it or not: the camera will be NOT on or recording, by default. Please approve and advise if you want the dash cam on and recording for your trip.

Faqs

  • How to change performance settings?

    Near the stick shifter, you’ll find the performance button on the left side. When turning the car on, it defaults to Eco-Pro. You may select up and down from Comfort, Sport and Sport Plus Mode. Due to recent modifications, the base horsepower has increased, so you may find Eco-Pro is more than enough power for your driving needs.

  • How to use CarPlay/Android Auto?

    Press and hold the Menu button on the center console for 3 sections to switch back and forth between the BMW system and the CarPlay/Android Auto interfaces. To pair your device, please select the appropriate Apple or Android system button. You’ll need to make sure your WiFi and Bluetooth are both on for Apple CarPlay. For Android Auto, I believe you just need Bluetooth to connect. You will need to look for and pair the Device name of “Autokit_…” on WiFi and or Bluetooth.

  • Using the lockbox for pickup and or drop off.

    If picking up and the key is advised it will be in the lockbox, the location and code will be provided. If doing a drop off and I’m not available: there is a lockbox in the back center seat cubby. It is in the unlocked position. Place the key inside the lockbox, close it, then scramble the digits. If a location to secure the lockbox is not given, please choose an appropriate and secure location to attach the box to and advise me of that location.

  • Ethanol/Non-Oxy Gas?

    For locations, most Holiday’s, BP’s and SuperAmerica’s, as well as Mobil’s that surround the Twin Cities/Greater Metro area will carry that type of fuel. To aid in finding locations, you can download Pure Gas, please see either of the other FAQ’s relevant for your phone to get the link.

Fantastic car and fantastic host. This 4-series is great for sporty back-road driving, but also cruises comfortably and effortlessly on longer highway trips. John-David never failed to respond quickly, and was helpful and accommodating with every aspect of the trip. If you’re comfortable driving a manual transmission and want a pleasant and fun rental experience, this is for you.

John-David's response

Great fun and a smooth experience is what I strive for. Glad you enjoyed your time here in Minnesota.

Great communication. It was fun to drive. Even though it does have 5 seat belts - it's really more of a 4 seater, because the middle back seat is not very comfortable. And the 2 door makes it a little hard to get in / out of for passengers. Overall great car though.

John-David's response

Thank you for the feedback. I hadn’t thought about the back middle seat. I’ll be sure to evaluate that scenario for practical seating due to that cubby design by BMW. I agree, getting in and out of the back in a 2-dr can be more cumbersome, however BMW designed a forward/back adjustment button, to move the whole seat assembly beyond the pull-up release to assist in getting passengers into the back seats. Thank you again for the opportunity to host you.
