Audi drivers overtake BMW as the most adulterous car owners

It appears that BMW owners have lost
the title of most adulterous drivers to Audi owners, the UK’s leading
married dating site IllicitEncounters.com can reveal. In a follow up
to last years poll, BMW drivers have slipped into second place.
Meaning BMW owners have either switched to a new car manufacturer or
have bucked up their ideas and been more faithful in the past 12
months.

BMW remains as the worlds largest maker
of luxury vehicles despite Audi receiving $25 billion worth of
investment since 2002 and doubling the number of model lines they
make since 2003 from 6 to 12 but Audi have plans to take the lead
from BMW by 2020 and if our stats are anything to go by they look on
course to do so.

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com
Mike Taylor said: “Cars can reveal a lot about their owners, all
the cars in the top 5 represent our members, they are typically
successful, motivated, high-achievers who are less likely to settle
for something they find unsatisfying, be it a car or a relationship.
Car manufacturers know this and Mercedes even famously used
infidelity to advertise their cars with the banned ‘Not In This
Weather’ advert.”  

It seems German manufacturers are the
most favoured by Illicit Encounters members with Mercedes Benz
coming in third in the study of the dating sites 800,000 members
whilst the exception Volvo (Swedish) came forth and Volkswagen
finished the top 5.

Interestingly both the car brands with
the fewest number of adulterers where French, so whilst the French
may embrace adultery it seems the drivers of their cars do not. So if
your husband or wife drives a Peugeot or a Renault you can be pretty
confident that they are less likely to stray.

The other interesting statistic was,
72% of Illicit Encounters members where likely to change cars within
three years to refresh to a newer brand or model, and only 7% of
members primary car was older than 5 years.
