If you're looking for a car that will make your visit to Los Angeles special, this is what you want. This car is quick, comfortable, and efficient. You can cruise around in LA traffic all day in comfort mode getting 22mpg, or you can drop into Sport/Sport+ mode and get outside the city for some spirited driving, provided that you know what you're doing of course.
This is a manual transmission vehicle, and though the clutch is light/smooth, I will not be having first timers learning about uptake in my vehicle. If you want to rent this car I ask that you have plenty of experience with manuals, and that you'll respect my request.
Other than that, my rules for rental are the usual. No race tracks, no donuts, no smoking, no taffy.
This is a fully loaded M235i so it has adaptive HID headlights, NAV, Bluetooth, park assist, sunroof, heated seats, and adjustable upper bolsters. It is a phenomenal car whether you're just cruising around, or driving aggressively, which it will encourage you to do.
