Description

Top Down, Summer Sun, Wind in your hair… So much fun in a Turbocharged Mini Convertible! Call or text me with any questions: 919-436-1161 Mini Coopers are just cool to begin with, so what would make it better? Add a turbo and a convertible top and you have everything you need. The mini has four seats, while tight in the back it is doable for most trips. Everyone will notice the light blue color and racing stripes. It is a 6 speed manual transmission. Please be sure you are an expert with manual transmissions. The turbo adds extra punch to make it a quick and fun car. Most of the time this vehicle lives at the beach! It has many features that make it very unique, including a whole gauge just to count the amount of time the top has been down. Mini always does interesting things in their vehicles. The room inside is very spacious even with the top up, and with the top up part of it slides back and makes sunroof. Engine: This car has a 1.6L 4 cylinder turbocharged engine with 181 hp and 177 ft-lbs of torque. It packs a lot of punch into this car especially paired with the 6 speed manual transmission. Audio - The sound system is really good, has auxiliary input for connecting your own device. You can hear the music even at highway speed with the top down. Please make sure you have the proper adapter for your phone and a 3.5 mm cable to plug in. Convertible Top: The top opens as both a sunroof and retracts fully for a clear view of the sky and the wind in your hair! You can see instructional video here: https://youtu.be/gX_WYD22_rY David’s Opinion: This car is cool because it is unique. Its peppy with its turbocharged engine and you can even slightly hear the pressure release from the turbo when changing gears. The best part is rolling around the beach with the top down. The color is eye catching, I always get compliments on this car when driving it around town. The ride is smooth, and the car rides extremely well. It handles like a small car, and packs plenty of power and punch to get you up and going. The 6 speed transmission is smooth. Pickup/Dropoff: Pickup and Dropoff are done with remote key handoffs and all vehicles are available 24x7x365. You can see Turo’s remote key handoff policy here: http://bit.ly/2VoHWjD Simply snap a few photos, upload them through the Turo App, and receive the lockbox code back instantly. I will send step by step instructions to you at the right time. For airport pickups, the vehicle will be available in parking for you. Why Rent from me? 100% properly maintained vehicles. Exceptect no mechanical issues, indicator lights on, or major cosmetic issues with my vehicles. Expect excellent communication and super fast responses. I usually respond within a few minutes to all questions and requests. I pride myself on on-time availability. You can expect to receive the vehicle on time and at the location booked. If issues prevent this I will swap in a loaner for you at no charge. Expect the vehicle to be clean, free of major issues, with plenty of fuel. Requirements: * All drivers must be 21+. * Vehicle must be returned 100% clean. * You will need the Turo app on your phone to take and upload photographs for the self check-in and check-out photos.

Guidelines

Rules and guidelines/advice to avoid additional charges:* 1) There is absolutely no smoking in any rented vehicle. Please do not smoke anything inside or around the vehicle, even with the doors and windows open. 2) Rentals cannot start before the scheduled start time. This is Turo's rule for insurance purposes, use the change trip option in the app to request different times, if they are available I will automatically and instantly accept them. 3) Rentals must be returned before the scheduled end time to avoid additional usage charges. Please use the change trip functionality in the app to request changes to the start and end times. If they are available they will be automatically approved by me. Significant delays of more than 30 minutes could affect the next renter. 4) Tolls/Moving Violations/Parking Tickets/Towing fees: You are responsible for all of these charges and are even responsible for parking tickets and towing fees in the 24 hours after the vehicle trip has ended. Please pay any tickets immediately. Tolls will be billed to you post-trip. 5) Drivers: The registered user who is renting the vehicle must be present during pickup. Additional drivers can be listed on the rental and thus be authorized to drive and covered by insurance. Here is the Turo link for adding drivers: http://bit.ly/2Q3Qg7n I find that often Turo does not charge for additional listed drivers, ultimately this is Turo's decision. The consequences can be huge if a non authorized driver is in an accident. Do not let any non listed drivers drive the vehicle. If you have people who you want to be able to drive simply list them in the app or call turo to have them added. It is a fairly easy step to fully protect you. 6) Responsibilities for returning the car: You are responsible to return the vehicle washed (exterior), vacuumed inside, cup holders, dash, and all other areas clean. In my automated messages I will send you the locations of the closest car wash prior to returning the vehicle. It will take only a few minutes and the cost is minimal. The car has to be rent-ready upon return, just as you would expect to receive it. It must also be full of fuel. Also consider adding post-trip cleaning. 7) Mileage overages: Every vehicle rented comes with a certain number of miles. Going over the mileage will result in a post-trip invoice. 8) No Pets: Unless otherwise authorized no pets are permitted. Some guests have allergies to pets. Please inquire first. There may be a pet cleaning fee added to the end of your rental. 9) No Reckless driving: All of my vehicles are equipped with GPS and performance monitoring. Have fun, but drive responsible. Treat it as you would if you owned it, or if it was your family members car you were borrowing. ​That is all of the fine print :) *This is not designed to be an all inclusive list of do's and don't. Please see Turo.com for a more comprehensive list of additional policies.

Faqs

  • How does it work to book on Turo?
    It's so easy to sign up and reserve one of my vehicles online. If you haven't yet created a Turo account reach out to me via text to see if you are eligible for $25 off your first rental. After you've created an account, simply use the calendar to input you the dates and times you'd like the vehicle. The turo calendar will check availability. Some cars carry a 2 day minimum for rental. Most require at least two full days on the weekends. Once you've got the dates, just 'check out' online. It will provide you with options for insurance if you need it (check with your personal auto insurance company first!). Once you confirm you will be instantly booked with me. I will follow up to confirm the reservation shortly after I receive it. I do instant booking on all of my vehicles.

First time TURO experience proved to be GREAT! Owner/operator DAVID was pleasantly thorough, detailed, and an ease to work with. The Mini Cooper is a car that I am determining if i would like to own.
