This vehicle was rented while taking an extension of a business trip. The car was a pleasure to drive and perfect for cruising in the mountains on my way to see the redwoods in Muir Woods and then a quick jog over to Muir and Stinson Beaches. Sport Mode in the mountains was perfect for the hairpin turns, uphill or down. This was driving joy!
Wife and I wanted a convertible for the weekend to drive down to Santa Cruz. The weather was beautiful and the car was amazing to drive. Easy pickup and drop off at the Turo lot in Millbrae. Thanks, Kent!
Kent is a great guy that communicated well and was on time. He even picked me up at the airport at 10:30pm. The car was amazing and fun to drive. I told him I will definitely have to try his other cars next time I come back to SF.
Incredible car! I didn't get to meet Kent personally as he keeps his car in the Turo lot. I can vouch that it's pretty convenient, the shuttle runs on time and takes you right to the lot. 2 minutes later you're driving away, super easy. The car worked flawlessly. Very quick, with an a truly incredible noise. For the enthusiasts: this is the top of the line Z4, its a real deal sDrive35is (sport package). It has about 30hp ~(10%) more than the standard and a much better true double-clutch transmission. The car shifts faster than you can blink, literally. It also has a better suspension, etc etc. The point is that this is a pretty special car. It's the best of the best Z4 in a beautiful color, and the last of its breed as BMW has quietly discontinued the Z4 line as of this year. If it was mine I'd keep it locked in a garage! Consider yourself lucky if you get the opportunity to rent it!
My girlfriend and I just traveled to Sonoma and Napa for an amazing long weekend. It was an absolutely amazing trip with help from Kent and his fantastic BMW Z4. This was my first experience with Turo, and if this experience is common the company my days with big name rental companies are over. Kent was great to deal with! Prompt to reply to any questions I had prior to the trip, and he also fully delivered on the vehicle. It was exactly as shown in the photos. The service at the lot was easier than any rental company. My car was waiting at the gate ready for the walk around, which took minutes. All told, with finding our shuttle at the airport to driving off the Turo lot with the top down took a total of 40 minutes.
I would recommend anyone use this service, especially through Kent! I'll be booking through Kent again most definitely!
First time to use Turo - was a total breeze. Kent made pickup easy, walked us through the vehicle, and gave us his contact info in case we had any issues. Kent's car preformed flawlessly, and was a blast to drive.
Car is phenomenal. Only 50k miles, looks gorgeous, drives perfectly. Great feel, take it up the coast on US-1 and you won't regret it.
Kent responded very quickly to all messages, the airport pickup worked flawlessly.
Great car. It has some scratches on the front because it's so low but for the money you absolutely will not find a better deal. It's comparable in performance to a Porsche Boxster S or Mercedes SLK350 but is about half the cost.
The process for pickup and drop off is so convenient.
Fast car that has a nice exhaust burble on deceleration.
Also, managed to fit one giant ass suitcase in the trunk so if you have a big suitcase you should be able to make it work. Tight fit.
Kent and his BMW Z4 met my wildest expectations. I was traveling from Washington DC to Shanghai China and decided to use the layover to knock out a few bucket list items.
So I had to have a convertible for my drive down Highway 1 to Monterey, and for 17mile drive to Pebble Beach. (Yes the trip was great, just do it already!)
Kent was crazy fast in answering all my questions. He also went out of his way and picked up the car at my Union Square hotel in San Francisco. In addition he was very friendly and sought to help resolve any issues we encountered.
The BMW Z4 was crazy clean, stunning to look at, and simply put... fun as hell to drive. My wife joined me in Monterey and has been campaigning for us to purchase a Z4 since. The car drives itself, the sound system was great, heated seats...it really looks just like the picture. I even took a few photos on 17mile drive with it. The trunk space is tight, but I used Luggage Forward and ShipSticks to ship my clothes and golf clubs so I didn't deal with any space issues. I proudly embrace the idea of skipping baggage claim, and dragging suit cases. Highly recommend you doing the exact same. Each hotel had the bags in my room waiting, and I simply had it shipped back home before going on my next leg. Pebble had my clubs on the driving range--classy..
In Short, Kent was quick, answered all of my questions. Did exactly what he said he would do, and even went out of his way on two separate occasions for me (try not to abuse it...). The car is in great shape, and I couldn't believe how well taken care of it is. I felt like I hit the lotto. I will be recommending Kent to all of my Friends, and ever person who reads this. Great Experience...I am unable to say enough good things...
A few things about this trip and the experience with Turo. I've rented cars in past and it was always a mystery on what kind of car we would end up getting. No fun for me! And also the cost of renting from big corporate names you would think you would get good rates! Never again will that happen again. Turo is a great concept and disruption to the rental car process as a whole. I wish the company all the best. Now for then best part...our BMW we rented from Kent. This car was a dream to drive up the coast of California and into Napa. What a great and amazing experience for me and my wife! The ride was so smooth and completed the whole experience. Kent was the best to work with also. He actually meet us at the drop off and was very thankful for us. We will see you soon Kent. Thanks
Thanks for allowing us to enjoy your z4 for the weekend. Cruising the 1 through Big Sur with the top down has been on my bucket list for awhile. We will absolutely look for one of your Boxters if we ever need another car in the bay area!
What more can I say? Probably the best deal in NorCal and the most friendly guy to rent from. If you want an amazing car with a price that most car rentals apply to their Corollas and Ford Fusions, then look no further than Kent's cars. Trust me. He's awesome.
Kent and Turo made our trip to San Francisco amazing and very enjoyable. I loved Kent's BMW Z4 35is. The hardtop convertible was very nice while driving and site seeing. The exhaust sounded amazing and the car had great response. I have never been to SF before and the hills are no joke but the Z4 had no issues with taking off while on a steep hill. There was not a single issue with the car and I would highly recommend it if you don't have a lot of luggage. I would definitely rent again. Thanks again Kent!
The car was perfect for a drive down the coast with my girlfriend. The car was immaculate and Kent couldn't have been any easier to rent from. He is very quick to respond to communications. Would definitely rent from him again.
The trip was great! Kent was very informative about the vehicle and drop off was a breeze. The car was clean and great to take up to wine country, especially with the top down. I would definitely recommend the Z4 and Kent to anyone else looking for a ride in town or to get away for a few days.
Kent was so helpful with the questions I had and even measured the trunk space available to make sure all our luggage would fit. The car itself was great as well. Fun to drive and was surprisingly good on fuel as well for a roughly 333hp car! I would rent from Kent again in a heartbeat! Such a pleasure and thank you.
Perfect car. Perfect guy to rent from. The Z4 35is is definitely a car that will attract a lot of eyes, partially if you're planning on to showcase the car with the top off! Kent was extremely awesome and definitely helped with instructions and showcasing a few highlights of the car. Definitely will be renting from him down the road!
Great car, would definitely be willing to rent it again when back to SF

Kent's Z4 is an excellent convertible which is very steady and responsive. With the hard-top roof you can choose to enjoy the wind and sunshine, as well as keep a quiet and smooth highway sprint. The interior is clean and new and it even has the smell of a new car. Kent is very responsive, punctual and negotiable. He quoted me a very reasonable rate for the over-limit miles. I highly recommend renting from Kent and I will definitely rent again in the future.
