Agreed.

But the problem is, power is so cheap now. And even the hyudnai's are making quality cars due to improvements in manufacturing and R&D. So where does a premium brand improve to differentiate itself to justify the cost? Higher tech than we already have? The cost of that would just increase exponentially. Maybe going back to hand built products, but then the consistency might start to lack more. Its a tough market when diminishing returns in products vs. price is as far along as it has become.
