A recent survey made by the British online dating service shows that men who commit adultery are twice as likely to drive a BMW that any other car marquee.
The survey states that from 640,000 members of the site, 19.21% drive a BMW, not an encouraging nor favoring number for the BMW company. On the second place is Audi with 8.79% and on the third is Mercedes, preferred by 8.23%. Jaguar (6.59%) and Land Rover (4.94%) round out the top five. Guess what? The cheating wives prefer BMW too, with 11.16%. Now is the turn of the least favored brands by adulterers: only 0.28% of people on the site drive SEATs or Renaults. MG is favored by just 0.53%, and Fiat and Chrysler by just 0.55%.
“There is an intrinsic link between success and cheating. Successful people are often risk-takers, and have got to where they are by setting their standards high. However, these people are also less likely to settle for unsatisfying relationships or monotony. With this in mind, the fact that BMWs are the choice car of our users really doesn’t surprise me. Our membership demographic is typically middle-class, high-earning and high-achieving,” declared Illicit Encounters spokesperson Rosie Freeman-Jones.
