I think it's just a misconception that Bimmer drivers, in general, push their cars more than anyone else. What's funny is that it is this very misconception that sells Bimmers.

Edit: I believe the NSX and S2000 were leading edge in their times and were driven "hard", in general. Still, they were very reliable cars.
NSX yes.

S2000 not really.
