My 328i is the ideal car for cruising wherever the road takes you with the sunroof back, seat heaters on and the premium sound system turned up. The car seats up to 5 people with plenty of trunk space but is still compact enough for easy parking and sporty drive. Color changing LED ambient lighting is installed in the exterior wheel wells and interior cabin to light up the night if you're so inclined.

LED ambient lighting
There is plenty of street parking in my neighborhood that usually doesn't require any permits but you're also welcome to park in my driveway if you wish.
🚭 No smoking (it's against Turo policy and could result in a fine up to $250). 🚯 Remember to refuel (91/Premium) and tidy up upon return. ❗️ Normal Turo rules/policies apply: https://support.turo.com/hc/en-us/categories/200236850-Policies ℹ️ Printed Turo Insurance card for your reservation is located in the center console and the app.
What's with the lights? How do they work?
Inspired by the colorful lights of the modern day tuk tuk in Thailand, I installed LED lights in the wheel wells and the interior dash of my car. The two lights can stay one of many colors of your choosing or change colors in a variety of different tempos including to the beat of whatever music you've got playing. They are controlled with their own remote inside the car and should be turned off when you leave the vehicle so as to not drain the battery.
Is that a bike rack on your car? Can I use it?
Why yes, indeed it is! You are welcome to use the bike rack that can hold up to 2 bikes at a time. I will remove the bike rack prior to your rental unless you have indicated to me you would to use it for your trip. The rack clips on to the trunk and has been very reliable for me on a daily basis.
How do I listen to music?
Press the "AUDIO" button and change input to radio, USB (iPhone cable included), aux, CD, etc.
What's the radar detector and how does it work?
This device detects radars of all sorts to let you know if there is an emergency or police vehicle nearby. The device will beep and light up depending on the strength of the signal. The detector is mounted to he dash to the left of the steering wheel. In order to use during your trip simply plug it in to the lighter located in the center console.
How do I turn on the lights?
They're set on automatically but the dial to make adjustments is to the very left of the steering wheel.
What do I do at the end of my trip?
Allow yourself some time to tidy up after yourself and fuel up nearby using 91/premium grade fuel (please take a pic to confirm). I will meet you to review condition of the car and take the keys. Using location sharing through the Turo app is a great way to show me you're on your way but a simple text will do too.
2011 BMW 3 SeriesChris's BMW1553
Chris was the coolest, nicest guy ever, with a great and well-maintained car. I used the car to go to an interview, and when I met Chris, he gave me a gift bag to wish me luck on my interview! Service went above and beyond. If this is the kind of experience I can expect with Turo in the future, I will definitely use Turo again. What a great ambassador for the company. Other Turo car owners, take a hint from Chris!
