Default Mostly women drive BMW 5-series. Mostly men drive A6/S6/A8

...ever notice that? I would love to pull up to a gorgeous SINGLE woman in an A8/S8 (thereby proving her intelligence) one day.

Ever notice almost all BMW's are driven by women or teeny-bopper to early 20's males with baseball caps?

Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

Default I seriously doubt that is accurate, I would bet vast majority of A6 drivers are women

Remember, most A6's are 2.8s, our view here is highly skewed. If anything, I would bet the real numbers actually show quite the opposite, that more men drive 5 series...

A8/S8- not just intelligence, but $$$, I'd take that combo in a single woman ; )

Default A good thing would be for drivers to be skilled and

disciplined. Unfortunately this is rarely found on our roads. Who cares what they look like? I would prefer for most to be gorgeous single women though.

Default Don't think so . . .

April has sited the demographics before, and I think a significant majority of A6 drivers ARE male.

Default I tend to agree...

I think (rarely) that most A6s are driven by women and obviously, most are 2.8/3.0s. More 2.7Ts and 4.2s are driven by men...but still from the ones I've seen on the road (other than at Audi meets) even the 4.2s, 2.7Ts, and allroads were at least 75% women.
I agree, more men (although they are really girlie-men drive 5 series cars from what I've noticed.

Default Demographics are very skewed...by who "bought" the car...

I am listed as the purchaser of the S6...but it is the wife's daily driver. I bet 75% of cars are purchased by men, but <50% are driven primarily by men.
Guys buy their chicks A6s.

Default A lot of men do the negotiation when buying, but the women end up driving the car.

I kind of like the male ratio thing - much more entertaining for me ;-) I'm sure Midori likes it too.

Default Ummmmm...not where I live.

It's actually the exact opposite around here. The men buy their wives Audis and they drive BMWs.

???? When you look at the demographics of M5 and 540i owners, it's practically ALL male..
