BMW 5 Series 2008
Wonderful! Definitely would rent a car from him again
Rubens J. - September 22, 2019

Tianshuang is a super example of the best of Turo. He has a great selection of cars, great prices and great service, and he runs his business well. The other people I met who were renting from him had similar stories to tell of how he did better for them than anyone else. Turo is about cars, but it is about freedom and greater options and opportunity. Turo is about the democratization of car rental. Renting from Tianshuang was a great small business and freedom experience. When I return to Chicago I absolutely will be using Turo, and Tianshuang again.

I normally drive the i3 and Mini Cooper (both BMW) in Europe so I was pretty excited to get behind the Series 5 sportspack from Steven. The 2-week experience was in general 5 stars but I like to leave fair reviews for future Turo drivers so here we go: Pros: 1. The car was great, especially comfy on the ride from Chicago to Madison 2. Great pickup on the highway when you need to switch lanes. Definitely switch to Sports mode (shift the gear to the left to engage) 3. Even though I thought I wouldn't need it, the heated seats and wheel actually came in handy for a couple of those chilly/rainy evenings (despite the fact that I rented in early summer. Oh well, Chicago..) 4. Roomy in front and the back. Loved the sunshades in the back. 5. Dropping off the car in his truck-trailer and picking it up in the same way is a really professional touch with a massive cool-factor. 6. Affordable. I got a great rate for the 2-weeks! Cons: 1. No iPass. I'm happy to pay for the toll amounts afterwards through Turo or PayPal (I just value the convenience of iPass over carrying change in the car. It's also cheaper.) 2. There's limited room at the airport terminal for pick-up and drop-off so transfer of keys and car handover is almost too quick! I would recommend a calmer staging area near the airport for pick-up/drop-off (like a large parking lot/gas station) 3. The car wasn't as clean when I picked it up. Would've liked a deep clean before it was delivered to me. I actually found a boarding pass of the previous Turo driver in the seat (privacy!). Also, halfway through the trip I had to top up a quart of engine oil. The bluetooth seemed a little buggy at times. Overall, I'd rent from Steven again as long as he works out some of these details.

Eric is awesome! So personable and easy to reach out to if needed. We happened to cut our rental short, and he was happy to assist with the early return. The BMW ran smoothly and is in good condition. Definitely a returning renter if I'm in Chicago again!
John F. - September 14, 2019

Eric was fantastic from the beginning to the end of my trip! He was very accommodating and friendly and I would highly recommend to rent his BMW!

It was pleasure to rent from Steven! Easy pick-up and drop-off. Great communication before and during the trip. Amazing car (we got 2011 BMW 550) which rides as a brand new, you really want to buy this car and take home with you:)) 5 star overall experience, will definitely rent from him again next time we are in Chicago.

I rented the Bmw for three days since I had my own car in the shop. From pick up to drop off I was extremely satisfied with the whole experience. Next time I need to rent a car, I will definitely rent from these guys again!
Damian T. - August 9, 2019

Tianshuang‘s 7 series is the definition of perfect for Turo trip. This car is amazing. The moment you start it you immediately feel the elegant of the luxury BMW. Head up display, M sport packages etc really make me feel like Tom Cruise of the mission impossible. The flat Matte black paint is beautifully unreal!! Draw a lot of attention when we get to the club. Tianshuang is amazing! He is super flexible and a clear and responsive communicator. Renting from him is really hustle free. I will only rent from him when I came to Chicago.
ZEHUA W. - October 27, 2018

Steve is a good businessman and a great guy. Renting a vehicle from him is better than any rental service, the pure essence of luxury just corses through you when riding in one of his BMW or Mercedes models. Will only rent from him when in Chicago!
Ridge R. - April 10, 2019

Had an amazing time in Chicago and Eric made things all the better. Easy pick up and drop off with helpful pictures along the way. I’ll for sure be using Eric’s BMW again in the future.

Charley X. - July 12, 2019

Adisa was on time and answered all questions within minutes or seconds. I will definitely book this car again if available in the Chicago area. This was my first Turo trip and Adisa explained everything perfectly. I don’t think I ever want to rent a car from a rental company again. Adisa made this service awesome.
Michael W. - October 7, 2018

Ester R. - August 16, 2019

My third time renting with F.S.R. and was again (as always) a great experience! Communication is always quick and pick up/ return details are easy. The cars are always spotless and in perfect condition; F.S.R.’s attention to detail on the car is top tier and much appreciated as a renter! The 2015 F80 M3 itself is a very fun car! Plenty of drive mode customization options make everything from scooting through rush hour to tearing up winding country roads a joy. It may take the uninitiated some time to acclimate to it’s touchy controls but once you warm up, that drivers seat is a throne on any road.
William W. - August 11, 2019

Eric was a first class person to rent this car from. The car suited our purposes and was easy to pick up and return. What made this rental stand out was his excellent communication throughout the trip. There was a very minor issue with the car during our rental but we had great communication, which gave us both peace of mind. It was fun to drive a more fun car than the typical rental.
Marissa M. - August 19, 2019

Charles W. - August 18, 2019

A lot of other BMW 5-series on here are you can see because they don't get rented nearly as much. Kendall's is the top of the line package (535i M-Sport) and reasonably priced making it great value. Had an overall great experience without issue, definitely would recommend.
Paul O. - August 28, 2019

Renting from Mo again was fantastic, the process was a breeze once again. Recommended him to a lot of my friends I do photography with. Easily one of the best renters in Chicago if you need to ride in style!!

Had to get a car for a whole day or meetings, errands & suburb trip Rohan's close location & car were an unbeatable match. Everything was really easy to arrange & handle although it was my first time using Turo. Rohan's BMW was clean, fully tanked up, well maintained with everything you might need for your pleasurable drive. Pick up & return was easy & smooth just like Rohan. who was a real pleasure to deal with & undoubtedly will be using him again when the need arises.

Great host! Very flexible and accommodating. I schedule the return relatively close to my departure time and he made sure to go out of his way and make sure i am on time for my flight. Great car as well, very clean and taken care of. Drives better than any new economy rental car. Definitely suggest renting from him! You WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

Elonda S. - June 3, 2018
BMW i8 2015
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5-star Turo renter and rental. Convenient pickup location, very professional renter. The BMW i8 is an AMAZING car that will surpass your expectations. I have driven every /M car (2-6), and in a way I like this more than all of them. It's definitely more exotic than any current factory BMW, the performance from the Sports mode is comparable to most any /M car, especially 0-60. The noise sounds similar to a supercar and the handling might be better than most. The amount of attention this car gets is something else. I highly recommend this car. The rental price is fair, and not requiring a deposit (at the time of my rental) makes this listing idea. Extremely accessible to someone with a lower budget, really nice. Again, I highly recommend this car. Supercar experience for a reasonable price.
David W. - June 22, 2019

Jeffrey is a very pleasant person to work with and any questions I had he answered within minutes. The car was amazing and we really enjoyed it. Thank you for allowing us to use your BMW to take my nephew to prom. I would definitely rent from him again in the future.

My boyfriend had the best 30th birthday. He smiled the entire time. And now 3 people in my family are dead set in buying this car. What an awesome experience! Thank you for everything it for sure does not go unnoticed.

Local Chicago favorites

Millennium Park and Michigan Avenue aren’t without their charms, but try booking a car and getting off the beaten path for your next Windy City weekend.

  • Grinders & deep dish

  • The great debate over the best Chicago-style pizza soldiers on, but Giordano’s, Lou Malnati’s, and The Art of Pizza are perennial favorites. Also, notably, the Chicago Diner is one of the best vegan eateries in the country.

  • Chicago Jazz, Baby

  • Louis Armstrong built his reputation in the Windy City, so Chicago is a hotbed of unique and historic jazz venues. Drive your Turo car over to The Green Mill or Jazz Showcase.

  • Wrigley Field

  • While not quite off the beaten path, Wrigley Field is a must for any baseball fan. Built in 1914, it’s the second oldest stadium in the country (after Fenway Park in Boston).
