Need an executive car with a quiet cabin

I want to buy an executive car with a quiet ride. This means minimal wind noise, tyre roar, engine noise and suspension thud. Have narrowed my search down to the BMW 5 series 520d SE, Audi A4 V6 3.0 218 sport and Mercedes-Benz E-Class 220d SE. All saloons and on 17-inch wheels and standard/comfort suspension. What do you recommend?

Likely to be the E Class but we do not have specific cabin decibel figures for the cars.
