Rozina was wonderful and extremely helpful throughout the trip with pickup, extensions, etc. The car was perfect, too! I’ll rent from her again if I need a car in West LA/Santa Monica!

The car was very clean and the service was very prompt. Had all of my questions answered right away. Loved the car! The roof being tucked away was a treat to ride around Santa Monica beach area.

Wow, the car was perfect, and a pleasure to drive. Robert was a great host and made everything so easy. Pickup in Santa Monica actually worked out perfect for our trip from Texas. The beach view was awesome and we grabbed breakfast close to the pier.

This car is a BEAST! I’ve driven M3’s and M4’s before but this car is at a whole new level. I was expecting it to be just a little better than an M3 Competition Package vehicle but I was wrong. Everything from the suspension to the brakes, BMW nailed it on this one. Thank you for putting this on Turo for others to experience. The whole process of renting this was probably the best I’ve ever had since first using Turo! If you love M Cars, you have to experience this.

Where do I start... Shy is a great host! He is very kind, helpful, and caring. He truly wants you to have the best experience possible when renting a vehicle from him. He has a great selection of cars from your basic car rental to your fast weekend car. I rented the BMW M3 CS and it was unbelievable! The car drives amazing with perfect amount of power to keep you grinning to keep on going. I am so happy with my experience with Shy and this car that I have already planned on renting the car again! Thank you so much Shy!! You’re amazing

It was my first time renting a car on Turo and Trevor was great with explaining everything and giving me tips on how to travel around the city. Trevor was very flexible both with the pickup and return. He was also super responsive during the entire time which made everything easier. I also appreciated the fact that there was an AUX cable provided in car! I had a great time and all thanks to Trevor!

Great car, very clean and well maintained. Drove like a new car. Owner was great communicator and very accommodating. I would say my only complaint was it wasn’t full when delivered but it was communicated at drop off.
John P. - September 1, 2019

Shy was awesome. Pick up and drop off was super easy. The car was exceptionally clean and made for the perfect day. I would highly recommend renting from Shy whenever you’re in the area!
Patrick S. - May 26, 2019

From the start Shy was amazing. The car was awesome, clean, super fun. I’ve driven both the regular i8 and now the roadster. They are night and day different cars. The roadster even handles better. Driving around town nothing gets more attention. I have driven lambo’s, Ferrari’s and other exotics this one takes the cake as far as attention. Thanks again!

Wow this M3 CS is something else. I’ve driven the M3’s but this CS is on another level. Extremely well balanced, quick, great power delivery with a predictable torque curve. Definitely an awesome car. Shy was a great host who helped accommodate my short term rental and met me up without delay. Extremely professional and looking forward to renting from him again. Might I add Shy’s cars are always in new condition, always a pleasure

This was my first Turo experience and I will definitely be doing it again - most likely with this same car! To be honest, my first choice of vehicle was from another renter closer to my home, but it was cancelled before our trip due to transmission problems. I was hesitant to have this happen to me again but Turo costumer service was very helpful and I was hellbent on having a convertible for my trip so I quickly booked Troy’s gem of a car and let me tell you - IT WAS MEANT TO BE! Troy SUPER friendly and easy to communicate with and the car was SO fun! Easy to drive, in excellent condition and best of all - easy to put the top down 😎 Thank you Troy for making my first Turo experience a 💯! Will definitely be seeing you again!
