Description

Ever wonder what it is like to drive the Ultimate Driving Machine? My BMW M235i with DINAN upgrades is a manual transmission power machine that gets back to BMW roots as a luxury sports coupe. Sporty power and handling without sacrifice of comfort and refinement. Available for responsible renters is my DINAN BMW M235i with RWD. Please note that this car doesn't handle well in snow and ice. Chains are NOT provided and cannot be used on this car. I reserve the right in heavy snow or ice conditions to switch renter to my BMW X5 or cancel a rental due to the car's inability to drive in extreme winter conditions. If conditions worsen during rental, you may be asked to return car early. Option to switch to X5. DINAN Badge has been earned on this car with over $10k of improvements making it as close to the M2 as possible. Car was purchased before M2 became available.

I keep my car very clean and hopefully you would as well. You will always get a full tank of gas and a washed car. My goal is to help you have a fun time and have the car always looking it's best for your trip! Please drive this car with care. Wear and tear such as curb rash to the wheels, door dings, cuts and abrasions to the interior leather/panels are not acceptable. Good-to-Go pass available for use on I-405 HOV lanes, WA 520, and Tacoma narrows bridge for discount prices. Renter responsible for reimbursement. Pass MUST be turned on for it to work. Please ask how to operate. If you have NEVER driven a manual transmission, please learn on a different car. PLEASE CAREFULLY READ Turo clutch policy as this is in full force for this rental due to past abuse by renters. You will be asked about experience with a manual transmission. BMW clutches are very expensive and do NOT take to abuse or grinding well. Clutch and fly wheel are $4600 to replace. Please do not loose key FOB. Renter completely responsible for key replacement cost AND programming costs. No pets, no smoking and re-fill with premium 91 Octane or greater. Please be exceptionally careful if eating of drinking in car as spills will induce a cleaning fee. If you plan to take the car to Canada please inform the owner before booking as per Turo policy. Renter needs to have insurance coverage through Turo for trips to Canada. If pick up is more than 30 mins after scheduled time you must contact the owner of the car by phone or text. Failure to do so may result in cancelled trip under Turo's policy and you may not be reimbursed. Please respect the time of the car owner if you are late.

Faqs

  • Do I allow extra mileage? What about trip extensions and extra days?
    I do allow extra mileage at the rate of $0.75/mi. I do not accept any transactions outside of Turo to include cash payments. The Turo fee covers insurance over the allotted mileage. Extra days/hours must be approved through Turo. I do my best to give renters extra flexibility and typically approve 99% of trip extensions, but I do reserve the right to limit rentals to the original contracted hours. Mileage limits are due to the cost of BMW maintenance being higher than average vehicles. Example: Normal Oil Change - $60; BMW Oil Change $180-200...Remember this car is an "M" car plus has added upgrades which have higher overall maintenance costs for ownership. Extra mileage also cuts into my warranty which is very costly.
  • I left my stuff in the car, how can I get it back?
    Due to the amount of renters that seem to forget personal items I wanted to reiterate that items left in the car are the renter's responsibility. The car gets rented often so items left may be taken by the next renter which is not my issue or responsibility. I do my best to clean and inspect the car between trips, but sometime things tucked into nooks, cubbies and pockets are not found. Please notify me ASAP if you think you left something. I will do my best to notify renters of items I find after rental. Return of Items: I can send your stuff via USPS, FedEx or UPS if renter covers cost of shipment. Insurance of items can be paid for if renters chooses to do so. I will hold items for local renters and try to get it to them by dropping off or having renters stop by place of rental for pick up. Not responsible for lost, broken, or stolen items while they are in my care. I limit my responsibility of return to 60 days post rental.
  • Can I take this car to the track?
    Absolutely not. Turo Insurance does not cover high risk events such as Track days or off road sports. Buying a separate "track day" insurance will not be allowed either since the renter is not the Registered owner of the car.
  • Can I pick up the car early?
    All renters must request changes to trips through Turo. Cars cannot be released to renter unless that time is covered under Turo's Insurance policy. I will strive to approve changes, but due to other rental requests, work or my own schedule this may not be available.
  • Where can I park my car while I borrow your's?
    You can park your car in the guest spot across from the driveway so long as the rental is 72 hours of less. The road is PRIVATE and street parking is not allowed. Longer rentals can park on the city street. Absolutely NOT responsible for any damage, theft or vandalism to cars left during rental.
  • Can I get the car late, early or during work hours?
    Yes! You can pick the car up anytime. I can do remote pick up and drop off. Please provide at a minimum 24 hours advance a photo of the primary driver's license. It must comply with Turo's ID policy. Upload to trip photos front and back. Also, one of it by your face. Once confirmed, keys will be left in the lock box for guest to pick up. Photos of the car will be uploaded prior.
