Where's the 'Couple' Button.

We will drive it about evenly. She will drive it to work, I'll drive it the rest of the time.

Re: Male or Female?

Errrmmmmmm,

Sorry to throw a spanner in the works LMB but what about an option in your poll for both?!?!?!?!? :confused:
/B]


Ok, what about an option for transexuals or transvestites then?!:D You never know I may be Mr dietcokeplease, Monday to Fridays and at the weekends I may be Ms. dietcokeplease!;)

And can Basil please detail his "female tendencies!"

Also I think that:

(1) As a basic generalisation, female drivers can be seen more often during the day as they whizz around to the shops, school etc and males cars will be parked up at work or the guys are at work paying for their partners cars!

(2) Males are more likely to be nerdy/anal rententive club/forum/meet types, in need of validation, and therefore there are more of us on the board (as explained by my presence).

Stereotyping?!

hmpf!

I work for a living....to pay for my own car....(in IT funnily enough - where the male female ratio is surprisingly even).

However - I do have a One on order (doh!)
;)

My opinion is

That women buy and drive the cute cars, and men talk about them in various motorhead forums. So your poll results would show lots more men than women owners.

In the real world, MINIs are probably owned and driven equally by men and women. I think men would be more likely to buy the S, though. Women just don't post about them.

Seems like most MINI2 users are male? Am I correct in my
assumption?
However, I would say 50% to 60% of the people that ask me about the MINI are women. Shoppers I've seen in the dealerships are also half women. Alot of these women are looking to buy the car for themselves. They are not tagging
along with the guys.

The poll is a good idea, but it might need a few more options, besides "both" {hermaphradites anyone? ;) } . I voted and uh, I'm a female. :D Although Paul tried to change my sex recently on the "Use it or Lose it" donation thread. ;)

On this board, I have taken it for granted that the majority of posters are male - and assumed that everyone could tell I was not...but words can be deceiving especially on a message board.

Here's a dumb question: what exactly is a Mini One and do they even have them over here in the USA? As far as I know, all I've ever seen (since the old days when I was but a tyke) are the current Cooper and CooperS. From a purely unscientific annecdotal view, I've seen more men driving both...but sometimes they whiz by me so fast that I can't see which sex they are - or if they're married or what!? :D :p

Hope the poll stays open long term, and you're right, even if it's not scientific, it's a handy tool for marketing folks. :)

P.S. Oops, I didn't realize you'd exhumed this thread AprilWhine! :D Good digging!

Thanks Aiden, I see that if you're not really clued in you might not see the differences. At least that's one thing I don't have to worry about over here. ;)
