BMW 3 Series 2011
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!

BMW 5 Series 2011
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.

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

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.

Once again Brian was amazing to work with and this BMW is gorgeous! Such fun to drive and be seen in. Even through this tough time of the COVID-19 pandemic, Brain made sure the car was highly cleaned and disinfected from top to bottom for me. Greatly appreciate him and his service and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

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
BMW 3 Series 2011
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!

Everything about the experience was great. Car was super clean, drove great! He came and picked me up instantly from the terminal and I was in my car within 15 minutes. Turning the car back in also was very easy, dropped me right back off at the terminal and carried on. Next time I come back I’m going through Tianshuang, great conversations with him as well!

Coming from Copenhagen, I had a great experience with Tianshung. He was very kind and waited extra as we were running slightly in the traffic, and after returning the car, he dropped me off to O'hare. Will definitely recommend bookings via him.

Another trip renting from Tianshuang and another 5 star experience. Just like last trip, communication was great, car was clean and Tianshuang was easy to work with. If you need a car rental in the Chicago area Tianshuang is the SMART place to go.

Eric and his BMW were awesome. He communicates effectively with text/call, photos for directions, and detailed instructions that made drop off/pick up seamless at the airport.. It’s obvious he puts his Turo business on high priority. I come home to Chicago area once a year and will definitely use Eric again! Thank you!
Nora J. - November 26, 2018

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.
Richard G. - October 17, 2019
BMW 5 Series 2014
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.

Billy was timely for pickup and flexible with my drop off. The Beamer rides like a dream. If you’re coming into Midway, it’s right there. I saved money passing on a traditional rental service and had much more fun driving than I would have with a standard car. Thanks Billy!

While the car is older, it is very clean and everything works well. When we arrived we took a bus to the economy lot, and we dropped off the car at the same location return. We never met the host in person. The car gets very good gas mileage, and the heated seats were perfect for a cold winter day.

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.

Fantastic trip. Kamil was great to rent from - great communication, easy to work with and super helpful. My flight was delayed several hours and got in at midnight instead of 9:30. Kamil was very responsive and picked me up right away despite the delayed arrival. The BMW was great as well. The car is in phenomenal condition and feels brand new, very well cared for. Looks sharp, fast and fun to drive. The heated steering wheel and seats were great in the cold. I would highly recommend renting this BMW.
Varun K. - December 26, 2018

Kamil and his 2013 BMW 328i sports edition were both incredible. Very quick to respond, and his BMW was super clean and fun to drive, loved the Shiftronic and paddle shifters. My flight was delayed, but Kamil was very accomodating and picked me up from the airport terminal on time in the car, drove to a nearby lot for a quick tutorial of the car, pictures, and I was good to go! Will rent again when in town. Thanks Kamil!

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).
