This is my point.  Yeah, most of these cars can "perform"  BUT, if you 
want a performance car, why buy a luxury sedan?  It is obvious by the 
tests in the auto magazines that on the whole, all of the cars are 
approximately on the same level.  Maybe the BMW is faster, maybe the A8 
is lighter, but OVERALL they perform on the same level to the average 
driver.  So with that basis, wouldnt you compare them based on luxury?
