Meet Niki. 2007 BMW Z4 coupe. These E86 coupes were limited in production from 2006-2008, and they have achieved cult status among BMW enthusiasts. Combining a sleek fixed-roof coupe with the potent 3.0L naturally-aspirated N52 engine, BMW created a pure driver’s car with the Z4 coupe. Unlike the more powerful 3.2L M-powered coupes, this Z4 coupe is equipped with an automatic transmission, allowing the car to be driven by anyone. This car provides a sporting drive with little compromise. Despite the neutral grey color, this car turns heads and brings joy to children, and is incredibly rare to see. This car loves backcountry roads during the day, and it spends a lot of time parked outside of trendy bars and clubs in the evening. Avoid airport delivery fees! The car is located across the street from Midtown MARTA station - a 25-minute, $2.50/person, direct ride from the airport. Note this car has limited storage space in the back: two pieces of luggage that can fit in an airliner overhead bin can fit, but not much more. This is a perfect weekend car: two people, two getaway bags, and 6 cylinders reminding you of what BMW is capable of at their best. 200 miles per day! Spend the weekend in the mountains or cruise to the beach for a week. Reasonable overage rates are available. Minimum rental length may apply; please contact me if you need the car for a different length of time and we’ll try to accommodate as best we can (you can always book for two days and return the car early). This car has an old-school sound system. As the Z4 was built more for the driving experience, in-cabin entertainment was an afterthought. I have fitted the car with a 9V - USB converter device for phone chargers, and the car comes with a 3.5mm audio jack to Apple lightning cable adapter to allows you to play music or GPS instructions from Apple devices via the stereo’s AUX input. Both of these are provided for the convenience of all of our guests. Please enjoy responsibly. Removal of either device will subject the guest to a fee of 15$ per device. Great, reliable commuter car - 26 mpg highway and a smooth, comfortable ride even at 80 mph. Please note that this - like most older cars on Turo - is a 10 year-old German car with more than 100k miles. We take great care of the car, having spend thousands in repairs and preventative maintenance to keep it going. However, as with all cars - especially more "mature" cars like this - things can go wrong. Rest assured the owner is responsive to issues that may arise, and all of our cars are eligible for Turo's roadside assistance program. This is not meant to scare you away, rather, just an attempt to create fair expectations - many Turo cars are of similar age/mileage, but few are in as good condition or as well-maintained as this car. Should an issue arise do not hesitate to contact us.

Parking details

Car is in secured deck. Upon booking, I will provide instructions for access.


Just a few rules of engagement to note: (1) absolutely no smoking/vaping/drug use or pets, (2) please return full of fuel (minimum 91 octane) and provide receipt from last fill-up (failure to do so will result in 15$ fee) (3) don't leave trash in the car, (4) do not wash the car's exterior (vacuuming the interior is ok and welcome) (5) do not use the automated toll roads as this car is not registered, (6) do not track, autocross, drag race, or otherwise drive the car in a competitive nature (whether against the clock or other drivers) - this can be arranged outside of Turo with an additional fee due to the increased wear & tear, insurance requirements, and the fact that it is against Turo TOS. Failure to abide by any of these could subject the renter to additional fees. Put simply: treat the car kindly :) I will not hand over keys if the name on your license does not match the guest name provided by Turo. At check-in, we will walk the car together and I will point out all existing damage, documented with photos uploaded to Turo. This car uses GPS tracking to monitor its location. Disabling this system will result in the car being repossessed with no refunds due to the guest.


  • Is this car comfortable?
    The seats themselves are decent. There is a ton of headroom (and I’m 6’3” / 190cm) allowing the cockpit to seem more spacious than you might otherwise think by its appearance. This car rides very low, and the suspension is very firm: you will be as comfortable as the road allows, which, sadly is often not great in Atlanta.
  • Is the car easy to drive?
    It’s remarkably easy in the sense that it’s an automatic without a complicated gearbox, and the car is very analog in terms of the tech to get the most out of the car. The short wheelbase makes parellel parking easy, though the driving position being so much closer to the rear axle may cause some anxieties. The hood is very long - watch out for curbs! - and the car sits low so speed bumps, multi-story car parks, and driveways should be approached with care.
  • What type of fuel is required?
    This car requires 91 octane, which is typically premium in the US. Please use premium fuel else we will have to bill you for octane booster after your trip has completed.
  • What insurance should I use?
    If you are renting this car, chances are you have the means for decent auto insurance; you may even have a great travel credit card with rental protection, and you may be accustom to declining rental insurance. Before declining Turo’s insurance, please take the time to verify with your insurance carrier of credit card that peer-to-peer carsharing is covered. Many DO NOT cover this service, much like how Uber/Lyft often isn’t covered without an additional rider. I say this for your benefit - I don’t see so much as a dime from your insurance choice. Please do yourself a favor and verify coverage before your trip begins. You can change your coverage up to the time when you check in and take the keys.

Great car, and it was super easy to pick up and drop off

Joseph's BMW Z4 is a classic 2-seat sports coupe with smooth acceleration and excellent cornering capability. It's a first-rate weekend car, and Joseph went out of his way to make pick-up and drop-off seamless. He's a first-rate Turo car owner.
