There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

wtf is with that article? it's so poorly written that you can infer so many things.

not enough info. sorry to geek out on you but the data provided doesn't really go towards anything. no detail on sample sizes, equal distribution across manufacturers or just the people that they polled altogether? was this done in the middle of a bmw sales lot? and
sex? with what? sheep? assorted farm animals? gay partners? married spouse? hookers?

Funny, my wife used to have a BMW and I didn't get any more. I wonder...

Well we can't have that.

Survey finds BMW drivers have more sex
Porsche drivers bottom of scale, German magazine says

Pascal Le Segretain / Getty Images file
BMW drivers have sex on average 2.2 times each week, according to a German magazine.

Updated: 12:46 p.m. ET May 03, 2004BERLIN - BMW drivers have more sex than owners of any other cars and are much more active than Porsche drivers, a new German car magazine has found.

The German magazine “Men’s Car” found in a survey of 2,253 motorists aged 20 to 50 published in its inaugural May issue that male BMW drivers say they have sex on average 2.2 times each week while Porsche drivers have sex 1.4 times per week.

Following BMW drivers were Audi (2.1), Volkswagen (1.9), Ford (1.7) and Mercedes (1.6). Drivers of foreign car makes were also behind BMW with Italian cars (2.0), French (1.9), Japanese (1.8), Swedish (1.6) and Korean cars (1.5) trailing after.

Among women, French car drivers were top with 2.1 times per week followed by Audi (2.0), Italian (2.0), and BMW (1.9) with Porsche again at the bottom of the scale at 1.2 times per week.

Looks at the demographics in Germany for that car.... remember the base model BMW in Germany is NOT a high end luxury car...it's mor like a Toyota Camry.

Porshe driver s probably get less sex because they are senior executives, doctors, lawyers, etc. older and spend more time at work than a young 25-35 year old.

THe BMW driver has a plain Jane chick.... the Porsche driver has the 20 year old model with fake tits.

Man, if my stat professor weren't like 70, I'd show him that article as an example of bad reporting. LOL

By the way, I think that BMW drivers have, on average, sex WITH THEMSELVES 2.2 times per week. Every dumb ass 23 year old with a new job out of college goes and leases a 3-series. whoooo hooo hooooooooooooooo.

not impressive.

Actually, I think there's nothing wrong with them. I just think that people get WAY too overexcited about them as if they are hard to come by or something. It's a car, not a giant rolling diamond.

You're absolutely right. Alot of people don't realize that it's still just a car. Every morning I see stupidasses with their leased 3 series and c class cars looking all smug like they're better than you because they have a nice car. Now a Ferrari...I'd be one smug sumbiatch if I had one of them!

You're right. I think Dodge was just left out of the survey for fear we'd embarrass everyone else.

How do you have sex 1.4 times a week? Is the .4 registered as a BJ and don't count as all the way? Maybe a little salad tossing or golden shower to boot?

Why do people get so excited about diamonds? They're only rocks? I have sex with myself an average of 14.08 times per week. I have sex with my lovely counter part an average of 4.6x per week. I drive a Ford, should we start a clsb survey (of our own?)? They should do one for bikes, I bet the duc owners get all the sweet love (yeah right)
