Description

Hey everyone, my name is James and I would love to be your Turo host in Charlotte. I have EXCELLENT reviews and am a host who is committed to Turo full-time. The car you're looking at is a LOADED BMW 328i in great condition. BMW styling and comfort at an AFFORDABLE price. My favorite option this vehicle has is a BEVERAGE COOLER in the center console. Note it does only hold one small diameter beverage, so perfect for Red Bull, 20oz soda bottle, etc.. Additional options include a sunroof, leather, heated seats, and performance speakers. -- OPTIONS -- - Beverage DRINK COOLER in the center console - Sunroof - Leather seats - Heated seats - Automatic climate control - Mirrors which automatically adjust when you're backing up - Bluetooth, aux input, or USB for music - NOTE - This vehicle may be in great condition inside and out, BUT it's not perfect. There is a small dent in the trunk and a few other minor imperfections. Also, it's a few years young so don't expect a big touchscreen in the dash or anything like that. -- IMPORTANT NOTE -- NOTE - In case you haven't driven an older BMW before, these are not effortless vehicles to drive. What I mean by that, is the steering takes a little effort to turn, as that's how BMW designed there vehicles. There is nothing wrong with the vehicle. I have several BMW and they all drive the same way. Also.....vehicle has a little bit of electrical tape to cover the interior door handle. This is because its a common BMW problem to have some residue from the door handle come off on your hands, so the electrical tape prevents that from happening. Please see the last picture in the listing and please do not rent this vehicle if this is a problem for you. -- CORONAVIRUS NOTE -- All of our vehicles go through a rigorous, multi-step cleaning process for each rental. IN ADDITION TO THIS, as an extra safety precaution, we have now begun using Ozone machines after each rental. Ozone machines have proven effective at removing bacteria with SARS-type viruses in the past, and this serves as an EXTRA LAYER of protection. WHY RENT FROM ME? 👨‍🎓 Every trip helps a college grad pay off student loans:) 🌟 1000+ trips, with STELLAR reviews 🏆 One of Turo's "ALL-STAR" Hosts (Only 5-10% of Turo hosts qualify for this distinction) ⚡ INSTANT booking on every car (no need to wait for approval)! 🕙 Cars available for pick-up/drop off 24/7 ⏳ Last minute bookings available! 💲 We NEVER have any papers to sign OR extra fees -- WHY THIS BMW? -- - Affordable luxury - A COOLED CUPHOLDER in the center console.....they don't make them like that anymore!! haha - Great options such as: a sunroof, heated seats, automatic climate control, full power seats, etc. - 4 doors and a big trunk for several large suitcases - Great styling - arrive at your destination in style GPS TRACKER WILL BE USED - Abuse of the vehicle (rapid acceleration, repeated hard braking, and excessively speeding) will not be tolerated. If you don't agree to treat my vehicle with respect and be a good driver on the road, please do NOT rent this vehicle.
