The Ride
The Driver: Herriade

Spotted at: Miami Museum of Science, 3280 South Miami Avenue, Miami, FL 33129
Odometer: 100,000


Q: Hi Herriade. Great car. Why did you pick it?

A: It spoke to me as a classic model. It has a nice engine too. It’s not bad for the price range. I bought it in South Motors Miami. Simple and clean. Get in, get out. Test drove it. Nothing extraordinary. Just get the job done.

Q: Do you like driving it?

A: I like driving it. It’s a pleasure.

Q: What do you like about BMW?

A: The brand. It brings a lot of respect to its name. It’s a lot of integrity in the name. On top of that, if I buy a Beemer, I know it’s a nice car. I’m going to get something nice out of it. I’m going to get luxury and performance. I did get luxury and performance!

Q: What’s the farthest you’ve driven it?

A: Miami to Tallahassee. I went there for school. I go to FIU and I’m studying business.

Q: It’s definitely a businessman’s car. Is it radiating what kind of business you want to do? What kind of business are you studying?

A: Entrepreneurship.

Q: BMW pretty much symbolizes that. Would you get a BMW as your next car?

A: I’m convinced now. I’m in love. I did some research. Infiniti is nice, but it’s not my taste aesthetically speaking. Mercedes Benz? Too much wear and tear. I can’t think of other luxury brands off the top of my head right now. I test drove other cars. This one, it was like a glove.
