BMW Specialty tools to rent

I have bought a few of the specialty tools that make doing some of the ugly jobs on these cars really easy. I am willing to rent them (cheap) to help finance getting more of these specialty tools (which I can then rent).
The tools are (generally) Baum, Koch, or KTC.

It's win win.

Here's the deal: You provide a cash money deposit for the full retail price of the tool.
When you return it, undamaged, I return the deposit less the rental fee. Any cost to replace or repair any parts you damage are deducted from the remaining deposit.

Tools I currently have available:

Differential small bushing tool e46 non-M ($75 value)
Differential large bushing tool e46 non-M ($75 value)
Subframe bushing kit all e46 ($300 value)
Rear suspension bushing kit* all e46 ($300 value)
Peake R5/SRS-16 Airbag tool 2000-2002 style ($75 value)
Fan clutch wrench set ($35 value) [no charge, just deposit]
5sp & 6sp clutch alignment tools ([email protected]) [no charge, just deposit]
Universal bearing puller/press (wheel bearings) ($150)
Engine support bar ($150 value)
Large specialty Sockets for wheel hub nuts, transmission shaft, etc. ([email protected])

$20 for <$100 value tools
$40 for >$100 value tools

*[This tool set allows for on-car installation AND removal of the three rear bushings located on the semi-trailing arm of E46 BMW 3-series cars:
Upper control arm bushing, Lower control arm bushing, Trailing arm bushing
The tool set includes fixtures to service both the new-style and old-style trailing arm bushings. The old-style is a conventional bushing with a one-piece outer shell. The new-style bushings have a two-piece outer shell and are being supplied by BMW and aftermarket channels as universal replacements.]

Hey Bill, thanks for the heads up about your rentals in my other thread about tools. Will reach out if I need any of these since I'm relatively close by.
