    Thread: And the madness begins...JPM Coachworks Interior Redesign

    JPM Coachworks is a company in Atlanta that specializes in custom interiors. I had them do my last car (built Subaru) in black Alcantara, black Italian leather and red stitching. Everything from the dash to the Sparcos were all custom upholstered and the way it transformed the car was unreal. The interior is where we live...so I like to make sure it is exactly how I want it. When I bought the V, I really liked the layout and how they used Alcantara mixed with leather from the factory. I also knew it was not going to be long at all until I drove it up to JPM to let them dive straight into it. Much like the Subaru...this will be done in stages but I am really excited to see where it heads from here.

    So...with dealer tags still on the back...we started to get to work on the vision I had for the car. With the colors in the Cadillac logo, it really limits what you can do (at least in my opinion) with coloring to keep an OEM+ look. Originally I wanted to do Porsche green stitching with green calipers but that really clashed in the interior with the logo. Instead, we pulled off the ZR1 theme and pulled out the blue of the Cadillac logo to integrate into the interior and I will be using that same ZR1 blue as the exterior accent.

    Today, we got done with the armrest, shift boot and shifter. The armrest is done in black Alcantara with blue stitching and JPM's logo done in dark silver and blue upon my request. The shift boot is black Alcantara with blue stitching and the shifter was redone with black Alcantara and perforated black Alcantara like the center of the Recaro's. The next step will be the steering wheel (which I have a special idea for that is a carry over from the last car) and the dash/upper door card inserts. I'll keep this thread updated with the progress as things move forward.

    I can only imagine how many millions of dollars this is costing. I, too, am familiar with JPM through the Subaru world. I asked them for a quote to wrap my Mustang's steering wheel in leather. $750 "because we don't have the pattern for that wheel so we'd be starting from scratch." I went elsewhere.

    They are digitizing the patters for the V2 as we do mine so it will be cheaper than a one off custom part.

    I've been thinking about a V1 or a used V2 again, I'd have a lot more mod ,money to play with, but the V2 is just so damn big and heavy.

    Do it. I'm going to try selling off the G8 this year to get a Vagon.

    How are you liking the ATS by the way? Maybe you should wait for the ATS-V?

    It's really a blast and easy to live with. There's no comparison to the V or the G8, I find that I'm just in a whole different mindset of what my expectations are I think. It's an incredibly balanced compromise of performance and livability. I know the V is around the corner and I've had my mind on it (and several other cars) but the V will have to be something special for me to make the jump right away I think.

    I'm almost a year into ownership and about at this point is when I was getting bored with the G8 or the V, but I don't have that problem with the ATS . It gets 26 mpg even in my shitty commute, and with the FE3 and big tires it's very entertaining. I'm planning on running it through the local autocross circuits this year infact.

    My biggest gripe would be the trans is extremely fuel economy oriented, and shifts are crappy too, it would be nice if I could engage sport mode *without* putting the shocks into sport as well, because on public roads the magneride in sport are just unbearably harsh, I honestly think they would be too harsh on a glass-smooth track.

    Next gripe would be Cue. It's not as bad as it's raved to be, but the big downfall is you really do have to avert your eyes away from the road to do anything, which is simply dangerous. Functionally, it's easy to navigate.

    Now, you're probably wondering where the obligatory 'I wish it had a manual' line is, but I'm not going to say it. Even with the crappy auto I'm not sure I would enjoy a 6MT ATS much more. Maybe I'm getting a bit older, or maybe I'm in a unique situation where I have the 400 awhp B5 with a manual and drive it back to back with the ATS so I sort of know what it's like. I do know that I'm very satisfied with the sort of dual personality the car has between the awesome paddle shifters/sport mode and just throwing it in drive for the 1.5hours of 5-10mph commute time some days. That sort of driving is horrible in the B5, it's almost a pleasure in the ATS.

    I think that right now, the only way I'll be convinced to get a 6MT V is if I drove one to know the difference, which isn't likely to happen. I might find a 2.0T with a manual which I'll try to find before deciding.
