Description

This is the opportunity you've been waiting for - drive one of the only unique, 2018 Subaru WRX STI's in The Bay! [Update as of 7/26/2018: Cobb Stage 1+ tune has been installed giving the car a 18% increase WHP and torque!] Take this sexy beast through the switchback roads of Skyline drive, breathtaking coastal views of Highway 1, or cruise through the rolling hills of Napa. This car is equipped with Yokahama Advan summer tires from the factory (mounted June - November) and is fitted with Continental Extreme Contact all seasons for getting up to Tahoe in the Winter. No chains required! Are you from out of town and need suggestions on what fun roads to drive through or where to eat? I'd be happy to recommend some suggestions! Just PM me and I'd be happy to help after you book the car. Significant changes were made to this STI in 2018: -Cobb Stage 1+ tune -Cobb SF Intake and Airbox -Perrin wing stabilizer for even more downforce -19 inch Enkei rim upgrade -Six-piston Brembo big brake kit with yellow calipers for the front -the body has been refreshed with a re-sculpted front bumper - Adaptive LED headlights that swivel when you steer into a turn -Fully electronic center differential for improved handling and stability -50% stiffer suspension -Hill assist for those tricky shifts if you're in the city - Improved cabin insulation from outside noise This world rally car champion carries the same old bones (2.5L Turbocharged Boxer Engine) and puts out 305 HP doing 0-60 in 4.5 seconds but with more aggression, a refined interior, and sharper handling! This isn't your ordinary Subaru - IT IS LOADED with practically every possible option you can get from the dealer including: -Recaro Racing Seats (with seat warmers) -STI Performance Catback Exhaust from Subaru Performance Tuning (SPT) -STI Short Throw Shifter -Front Under Spoiler -Rear Under Spoiler -Side Under Spoiler -Vortex Generator -Auto Dimming Mirror & Compass -All weather floor mats / cargo mat -Center Arm Rest Extension -Red Footwell Illumination Kit This Subaru WRX STI isn't for the faint of heart - it's bold looking, the speed could kill you if you don't respect its power, and it has a cult-like following wherever you drive. If you found this car, you already know what you're walking into most likely - friendly waves from other Subaru WRX / WRX STI's, thumbs up from other drivers, and drivers that will want to race you at the light. The car will have a showroom, detailed shine when you receive the keys thanks to the ceramic protective coating from Dr. Beasley's applied to the paint. Check out all my 5-star reviews to see why my Subaru WRX STI is the next car you'll want to drive on Turo and why you should go with me as your Turo host.

Skateboard
This isn’t an ordinary skateboard, it’s a Loaded Icarus longboard that will make it extremely easy to get back to your car when you find free parking further out. Comes with ABEC-7 bearings, Paris V3 trucks, and 80mm / 78A soft compound urethane.
$30/trip1 available
Cooler
You’ll get a disposable insulated cardboard box with two really large ice packs to keep your stuff super cold for your trip. Save the hassle of lugging a cooler and cleaning it after!
$10/trip1 available

Parking details

Car is actually located in Alameda and I’m only 10 mins from OAK airport to come pick you up or leave the car there if needed. Plenty of safe, free parking that isn’t metered in Alameda as well if you are local and leaving your car to swap out for the weekend.

Guidelines

To expectations for both parties as this is my daily driver please read the following below: -Be knowledgeable with driving a manual and ok with showcasing your skills by driving me around the block. I do this now after two bad apples which I described at the end :) -Renters are ok providing their LinkedIn or FB profile as an additional background check. -Absolutely no smoking (including vaping), food, drinks, or pets in the car. I wouldn’t do that in your car! - No tracking / auto-crossing in the car. The car is equipped with a GPS monitoring system and a dashcam system facing outward (not inside) to protect both parties. By renting this vehicle you agree to being recorded. DO NOT RENT THIS CAR IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE GUIDELINES! I’ve never had anyone say no, and I’ve conducted 40+ rentals so these are the respectful renters I’m happy to share my car with. -Winter trips to Tahoe are okay. It’s ok to bring it back discussing dirty. That’s what Subaru’s are made for! DO NOT BRING IT TO A CAR WASH! It'll have to be hand washed and and given an undercarriage wash. A nominal $30 cleaning fee will apply (if it's dirty) - Refill the tank with Premium 91 only! -The renter will be held liable and responsible for any negligence. Work and estimates will be charged accordingly from the local Subaru dealership for hard launching, improper shifting, excessive clutch and transmission wear. Out of all my rentals I’ve conducted to date, all my renters have been absolutely phenomenal except for two who clearly didn’t know how to drive manual and it cost them $4K!

Faqs

  • Can I bring the Subaru to Tahoe in the snow?
    Yes! It's equipped with Continental Extreme Contact Sport all-season tires that is Mud and Snow rated. No chains required to get to Tahoe!
  • I'm having so much fun in your Subaru, can I extend my rental?
    Yes, extensions are fine as long as there are no renters that need it and booked already. All extensions must be done through the Turo app.
  • Does this car only come in manual transmission?
    Unfortunately, Subaru has only made this car in manual. If you aren't proficient in driving manual, this car will slay you. It's unforgiving, a stiff clutch, and has no mercy on beginners. Rent another car on Turo to get some practice before getting in this one! DO NOT RENT THIS CAR IF YOU ARE A NOOB STICK DRIVER OR THINK 6TH GEAR IS THE REVERSE! A CLUTCH REPLACEMENT WILL COST YOU 3K AS ONE RENTER FOUND OUT THE HARD WAY!
  • Can you put on a ski / snowboard rack for my trip to the mountain?
    For an extra $40 for you entire trip, I'll have the ski /snowboard carrier ready for you when you pick up the car. It fits up to six pairs of skis or two snowboards and two pairs of skis. The ski carrier also locks and you'll get a key to it.

David was an amazing host start to finish. The car was in pristine condition and the performance was exactly what I was looking for. I would definitely rent again.

First and foremost, David is a great guy to rent from and is an all around good guy. Coordinating with him very simple and straightforward and he's a bonafide car guy (which is evident based on the car he drives and the tasteful way he's modified it). David was very friendly and helpful when I met him to make sure I know all the features and quirks of the car and the ski rack, and was just as easy and friendly upon return. He was flexible with my return if I needed it and it was greatly appreciated. I'd highly recommend renting from David, it was nothing but a good experience!

David is an amazing host. He's very accommodating to renters and I can tell how much he loves his car and how he wants to share that experience with everyone. His Subaru WRX STi is an amazing car. it handles well, zippy and fast on power when you need it. its sexy on the outside and seats are heated and hug you amazingly. it's always great that David is always available when needed, it gives me peace of mind. 12/10 will rent again.
