BMW drivers more likely to cheat?

CHEATERS FAVOUR BIMMERS?: According to online dating survey, BMW drivers are more likely to have affairs compared to Renault drivers who settle for being faithful.

It's not enough that BMW drivers carry the (admittedly deserved) stigma of "not using indicators" now owners of the German automaker's rides have been called out as "most likely to cheat".

That's according to an online dating site, Illicit Encounters.

In a survey it claims had 640 000 respondents, members voted owners of the Bavarian brand as most likely to have an extra-marital affair.


The survey found that 19.21% of male members who admitted to being unfaithful were BMW owners. Audi came in second as the choice of car for cheating partners with 8.79%, followed by Mercedes (8.23%), Jaguar (6.59%) and Land Rover (4.94%).

Illicit Encounters spokesperson Rosie Freeman-Jones said: "There's 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," she said.

Cheating female partners also preferred BMWs with a score of 11.16%.

According to the survey, car owners least likely to cheat on their partners are those who drive Renaults (0.28%), Fiats and Chryslers (0.55% each).
