Please feel free to go on deluding yourself that people who buy $60.000+ luxury sedans care about reliability though.

People who spend that kind of money on a car aren't actually buying a car, they are buying feelings. A rational buyer who looks at a car purchase from a strictly economical perspective would never even set his foot at a Mercedes, BMW or Lexus dealer, nevermind even consider buying any of their sports sedans. The depreciation alone makes it an absolutely terrible financial decision, never mind the fact that they all have terrible fuel economy and are expensive to maintain.

Since the buyers are making an entirely emotional decision, there is no true right or wrong, all these cars are very, very good and the manufacturers have spent billions developing them. Whatever you choose is a good choice as long as it feels right for you. Which car that goes fastest around the 'Ring or is the most reliable is ultimately irrelevant.
