David was able to convey its passion for this particular car and BMW in general. It was an experience to drive this car for a month in the Bay Area. I would recommend to anyone that likes to feel the wind and a very good engine, without compromising the MPG and with not too much electronic.
Can't say enough good things about David. He was extremely friendly, professional and accommodating. It also doesn't take a mechanic to recognize how well he takes care of his cars—most cars this old (especially BMWs) have a lot of issues, but David's E30 was awesome. It ran smoothly and the engine stayed cool as a cucumber, even on a 2 hour drive in 100 degree weather. Driving on the PCH with the top down was one of the highlights of my honeymoon. There's a very good reason that David has all 5-star reviews, and I will definitely be renting from him again the next time I'm in the area. Thanks David!
It was a real pleaure to meet David and I second all the positive reviews about renting with him and his cars. I really had a great time with this car, loved the sound, strong motor and direct feel of the road. Be aware that the car's suspension is lowered, so you need to pay attention to avoid speedbumps and holes in the road. If you like to drive and like the immediate feel of a classic car, I really recommend this car.
David made my first experience with Turo exceptionally smooth. He was kind and considerately explained the car's special features so I would have a better experience. I highly recommend renting from David, knowing that as I do so, that means a car might not be available when I need one.
David's convertible BMW is a lot of fun to drive, super-stable and with great handling. The manual top goes up and down perfectly. In addition a convertible is handy to carry bulky objects :)
All in all a great experience, and a great car.
This is such a wonderful car to drive! It sounds great, handles great and looks great, too. It's very reliable, even on longer trips, and the top is very easy to handle. I'm already looking forward to renting it again! David couldn't have been more helpful - he knows his cars, is trustworthy and super-friendly. The whole process was smooth and easy. I've already booked my next trip with David. Definitely 5 + stars!
This is really fun car to drive. Enough power to have fun, good on gas, and the right number of pedals! David's great as always (I can attest to that as I've driven half his fleet this summer!) check out my review of his other cars for more in depth!

This is the first car I've ever rent from Turo. The process is smooth. David is very nice and patient. He is the kind of car guy. All his cars are classic and mostly well maintained. For this 1992 E30 manual, it's amazing. It drives great, sounds great, and handles great. It's a really fun car you can drive in California to enjoy the sunshine.
