The thing is are we talking about levels of distortion or types of

I have to admit I was skeptical about class D but I really can't hear anything awful with mine in fact it sounds really good.
When I referenced the increased THD of class D amps, I'm specifically talking audiophile levels of distortion (1% vs 0.1% THD). Levels that you wouldn't be able to hear over engine noise/road noise. Like you said, nowadays you wouldn't be able to hear the difference between class AB and D in an automotive platform. I definitely agree with you and Crusader, class D is the way to go if you have the money.
