Description

Heads will turn when you drive this car. I have not had a single day pass without someone asking me about my car, giving me the thumbs up, or saying, "nice car!" They say that money cannot buy happiness, however, I always have a smile on my face when I drive this car. If you ever wanted to make Corvette owners jealous, just drive by them in this car. The eye catching, breath taking, sport meets classy BMW i8 is sure to be a show stopper. This is the latest model of the BMW i8 in Houston and the only 2019 Coupe in Texas on Turo. Looking for that perfect birthday gift? Enjoying a night out on the town? Planning a photo-shoot? Searching for a graduation gift? Need a ride after your wedding? Want to impress? Look no more! This car will impress much more then a ride in a limousine. I know you aren't renting this car just to get from one place to another. You are renting this car for the "experience". I am committed to making sure you have a great experience. This vehicle has it all! Scissor doors, iDrive, Bluetooth, and a high quality sound system... all of which make this car a dream to drive. Rent this car now, while they are still available. 2021 is the last year BMW will make these cars. The BMW i8 is an icon of progress. This innovative plug-in hybrid has a brilliant design that evokes an emotional response. If you want to feel like the whole world is watching you go by, this is the rental you need! VEHICLE RULES -RE-FUELING Premium gas only. 93 Octane -This car will be given to each renter with a full tank. Please return vehicle with a full tank or purchase the $18 prepaid-refuel option. -This car will be given to each guest clean. Please return the vehicle clean or get the hassle free post-trip cleaning extra on your check out. -Absolutely no smoking -No pets -Please return the car at the agreed time for your booking. Anything over the scheduled return time will not be covered by the insurance which will require us to charge you late fee of $250.00 I take pride in renting out my car and the reviews from my guests speak for themselves. Thank you!

Guidelines

*No texting while driving. 1) OTHER DRIVERS: (Meaning your friends.) You can allow guests to drive my car, but they must register with Turo in order for them to be covered by the insurance. If you let someone drive this car that has not registered with Turo, your insurance will not work. Turo insurance only covers people who have registered with them. There is no extra charge. 2) RE-FUELING:⛽ This car has a full tank of gasoline. I charge $35 if you don’t return it full. It's only $18 if you pre-pay. Turo (not me) adds in another "convenience" fee. If you refuel, you must save the receipt to prove that only premium gas was used. 3) You can charge the car using the cable in the trunk, but you don’t have to. As long as there is gas in the tank it will run. It uses a regular 110 outlet. If you can’t park it in a garage, please use the cover which is also in the trunk. 4) MILEAGE: Mileage is limited to 75 miles per day. Additional mileage will be charged at the rate set by Turo. I have no control over the rate they charge. 5) CLEANING: This car is expected to be returned in the same condition. If the car is brought back unreasonably dirty (as determined by Host) you will be charged a cleaning fee. 6) NO PETS/NO SMOKING: 🚭⚠ My cars are smoke and pet free. Absolutely NO SMOKING of any kind. No smoking/marijuana/fragrance/air fresheners, etc. A $250 Smoking fee will be applied to your Turo Reservation if there is any smoke smell or other weird smell. A $100 pet fee if there is any evidence of a pet detected upon return. 7) DAMAGES: The vehicle will be photographed before and after each trip. Any noticeable scrapes or dents will incur a repair fee. 8) Car cannot be driven on the beach. Salt damages the car and sand clogs the filter. I prefer the car not to be driven to the City of Galveston or other area near the beach, however if that is your wish, please discuss with me before going. 9) INSURANCE: All guests must purchase insurance offered by Turo Insurance Co. 10) ACCIDENTS: If you have an accident and the car is not drivable have it towed to Stella Link Auto Care located at 9801 Stella Link Rd, Houston 77025. You should call or text the owner, Adam at 832.277.8787. If you need to have it towed call my Tow Truck driver – 713.240.6665 (Mohammed). 11) CONTACT: There is no spare tire in any BMW i8, so if you get a flat tire, you must call me. Please text or call me at any time at 713.256.5297. If it is a car emergency, you can call BMW by pushing the red button above the rear-view mirror. *** Most importantly, I know you rented this car for a unique experience, therefore I am here for you! Let me know what I can do to make your experience better.

Faqs

  • How do I get in touch with you if I have a question prior to reserving it?

    Just call or text me at 713.256.5297. Ask for Mark

  • Do I have to return the car with the battery fully charged?

    No. There is no extra charge for leaving the battery on 0 miles. A fully charged battery only gives you about 25 miles of 100% electric use. After that, the Hybrid motor kicks in.

  • Can I use the toll roads?

    Yes. You will only be charged the amount of the toll.

  • Can I let other people drive this car?

    That is not a problem for me, however Turo requires that anyone other than the prime renter, register on their website. There is no insurance coverage for anyone not registered, which means the prime renter will have to pay for any damage out of their pocket.

  • How do I charge the battery?

    There is a plug-in charger that come with the car. It plugs in to a 110 volt outlet. It can take at least 8 hours to charge if the battery is completely empty. For faster charging, you can use a commercial charging station like ChargePoint, EVGo, or Blink.
