Description

Why should you rent from me? ✔️★★★★★Rating ✔️Flexible and Reachable anytime. ✔️I have not and will not cancel a trip! ✔️My cars are cleaned after each trip. Never be stranded with the range extender! Unlike the all electric version this is the i3 with range extender, you'll be able to travel over 125 miles to a full charge/full tank of gas. Listed as a hybrid but really is a fully electric car with the ability to use as much gas needed. If you can't plug it in, simply fill up the tank with gas and you're good to go! Car will arrive with a full tank of gas and fully charged to get you started! Clean inside and out i3 with range extender. When all the electricity gone, you simply fill up the tank and it'll run purely on gasoline(premium please, only 2 gallon tank, very cheap) with no problems, even at highway speeds. D.C. Fast charge Ready for quick electric top off in less than 30 minutes. Plug it in overnight and get a fresh 75 miles in electric range without paying a cent for gas. Car is unbelievable in its handling acceleration, and luxury. Voice recognition navigation and a display with BMW iDrive system will serve all your multi media needs including Bluetooth and HDRadio! Heated seats and climate control will keep you nice and comfortable. Rent today and experience the car of the future. The I3 is not recommended for long road trips due to the small gasoline tank. Excellent city car or for long commutes in traffic. We guarantee satisfaction so please feel free to rent from us! For questions before booking? --Please feel free to text me at 626-824-5945

Parking details

If you need to park your car when picking up mine, you can park street side.

Guidelines

You'll receive the i3 cleaned inside/out. The i3 should be returned reasonably clean, just as you received it. If you don't get a chance to have it cleaned, please let us know and we'll have it cleaned for only $30. The cleaning fee of $30 can be paid at the end of your reservation or we can charge it to your Turo account. Please no automatic car washes. The i3 is a very small car and the automatic car-wash brushes may damage the carbon fiber body panels. Hand-wash only or just prepay to have us deal with the dirty car upon return. Smoking/Vape, pets, eating, are NOT allowed inside our car. A $250 cleaning fee will be applied to your Turo Reservation if there is any smoke/Vape smell, evidence of pets or other foul smell detected upon return. Each individual wheel will be photographed. These wheels are large and expensive so please be careful when parking. If you receive a toll evasion or parking ticket we will request reimbursement when we receive the notice. You will be charge a $5 service fee. Have a great day!

Faqs

  • How many miles can I realistically drive per charge?
    70-75 miles if you drive gingerly, 60-65 miles if you drive sporty.
  • Where can I charge the i3?
    You can easily charge the i3 with a standard wall outlet. Please download the Plugshare and Chargepoint apps to locate chargers in your area. SoCal has plenty but you need to plan a bit! Estimated charging time: Level 1 (120 volt): 10+ hours Level 2 (240 volt): 3-5 hours Level 3 (480 volt, NRG DC Fast Charger): 20 min to 80%; 2 hours to 100% We will also include the Level 1 Charger that will be located in the front Frunk. Level 1 charging typically take 10+ hours if the i3 is empty. Please take care of the included charger as a replacement is $400.00 While charging in a DC FAST Charger, the charger will engage the locking pin and only when the charge is complete or cancelled the locking pin will dis-engage. Please do not forcibly remove the charger at anytime as this can damage the locking pin and charger. There will be a fee to repair this as only BMW can repair the locking pin.
  • What happens when I run out of electricity? What octane gas do I use?
    The i3 will automatically switch to the gas generator and run for another 50-60 miles on the small 1.6 gallon tank. Once the tank is depleted, the car will stop unless you fill up another 1.6 gallons or charge the battery. i3 takes Premium Gas only.
  • I want to return the car early or extend my trip
    If you want to return the i3 early please contact me directly and I will arrange a way to get the car at your convenience. If you want to extend a trip, please request it through the app. I will always approve the request if the car is available.
  • What do I do if I damaged the car?
    If the car is damaged please notify me immediately. If you let me know of the damage during your trip I can assure you I will do my best to make sure you are charged the minimum. If you do not notify me of damage upon return, it will treated as an indication of you not wanting to work things out. The damage will be reported to Turo and they will assess their fees (if Turo mediates the damage claim they will charge a MINIMUM of $500).
  • Your delivery fee is a little high, is there any way you can reduce it?
    Yes, depending on where you are wanting the car delivered I can decrease the price of delivery. Please bear in mind the delivery cost is mainly the price of Uber rides to and from your location. If you want to pick up the car by ordering an Uber, upon return I can drive you back to your location for the same amount or less than an Uber ride. Please contact me to arrange this service.
  • Do I have to clean the car before returning it?
    In order to avoid any possible cleaning fees it would be a good idea to have the car vacuumed and washed prior to returning it. This is especially true if your trip involves the beach or areas that are dusty. https://support.turo.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000808347-Cleaning-policy

Everything was as expected, easy to use app, great service and amazing car. The i3 was the perfect choice for out trip to LA.

Teodoro G.-Sep 18, 2019

The valet Turo lot made our trip with Vince’s i3 so easy. Pickup and return was a breeze. The car itself was very clean and ran like new. The tinted windows helped a lot in the LA sun and the gas backup was super helpful. Everything went smoothly, no complaints! I would book a trip with Vince again!

Great car and host

Jonathan O.-Aug 2, 2019

This impressive little whip really gets you anywhere. Vince was great to communicate with, and the Turo Valet was massively better than any car rental location. You may worry that 70 mile range (before the range extender) will cause anxiety, but I drove all over town, both Orange County and LA, and never once tapped into the range extender gas. Fun to drive. Sportiness and power I never expected for zero emissions vehicle.

Mitchell H.-Jul 26, 2019

Vince is an awesome guy with an awesome rental! Not the first time, probably won’t be my last renting from him.
