Re: compare this what?

Yes, you could compare them based on luxury but remember that this is a US car
enthusiast's magazine. They are going to get in a drive the living crap out of

office. This kind of person deserves the luxury comparison, but the mags will
always be that way. Unless you find a luxury only car mag. (?)
