Grayson is the most luxurious car I've ever owned. After buying him, I smiled every time I thought about driving him. BMW has packed a lot of extras into the car. Despite his age, he's still in pretty good shape. People have been surprised when I"ve told him that he's 12 years old. Although there are some minor issues with the interior trim, the car is still sleek and sexy, and you probably won't even notice that they're there.
Grayson is parked near the SLC airport. I've set up a free shuttle to pick you up and deliver you to the car. Because I am unable to meet you at the car, there are some extra rules with renting this car. Please review them in the "Guidelines" section before requesting a trip.

The car is parked at a hotel near the SLC airport. They have a free 24 hour shuttle to take you to the car from the airport. This shuttle takes about 5 minutes to get you to the hotel from the airport.
I live too far from the airport to drop Grayson off for you. Instead, I keep him parked at a nearby hotel. They have a free shuttle that runs to the airport every half hour and will pick you up from the airport whenever you arrive. The shuttle takes only 5-10 minutes.
Because I will not get to meet you in person, you will need to send me some pictures of your identification before the trip and I will give you a code to a lock box that holds the keys.
When picking the car up, before driving it, you'll need to take good pictures of the car's interior and exterior and the odometer and fuel tank gauge.
Before returning the car, you'll be responsible to clean the car immaculately. You can take Grayson to a carwash that I have a subscription to and they'll clean it for you for free. You'll need to plan some extra time to get the car cleaned before dropping him off.
For your benefit, you will also need to take good pictures of the car when you return it.
Grayson only uses premium fuel.
If you are willing to take some extra pictures and clean out the car when you're done, I'd love to let you rent Grayson, and I know he'll treat you well.
No smoking in the car.

There were quite a great deal of hiccups and confusion while renting "Grayson". Jason had switched hotels but failed to update the listing by the time I rented it. I ended up having to go to two different hotels before finding the car. Jason did reimburse me for my lyft ride but the time spent was not compensated. I spent quite a decent amount of time trying to get to the car as well as getting the car washed. One of the instructions is for the car to be given a car wash upon return. It took nearly an hour for the car to be washed and vacuumed by the car wash company used by Jason. This cut into my traveling time and I suggest to only rent this car if you have time to spare. The pricing may seem appealing but since you are renting an older car you may find yourself in unexpected situations. This car is also missing the front license plate (it was missing when I returned it) which is illegal by the state of Utah. Make sure the car has its registration tags as well as the plates as you do not want to be pulled over for the owner not complying with the state laws (the car was missing tags until a few days into the trip when Jason put on replacement tags) Jason mentioned to never drive without the gas tank half empty. I feel that the fuel meter should be working accurately when renting another vehicle. Steering alignment was off and veering to the right. Hopefully this gets fixed soon as it caused neck strain to my neck. When braking the car would shake.
Other than those issues the car ran okay for being a 12 year old car. The A/C worked during a very warm week in Utah. It did not have an aux or iPod port which was a bummer since my music is on my phone. Jason was great at communicating and trying to rectify all the issues that came up. The shuttle from the hotel was a quick ride and they drop you off at your airline.
Make sure you document your trip. Luckily the car got me around town but I would not rent this car again. Great for getting around town but would not rent for long distance in the event that the car may break down.
I was Grayson's (gray BMW 3 series) first renter and had a great trip. Little bit of a hiccup with gas right when i picked up the car but Jason was super helpful and responsive with getting things squared away. It was very quick and easy to take care of the car wash and pick up and drop off were also very straight forward. Grayson is a nice ride and cruises well on the highway as well as driving around town.
