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 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 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.
