    The CTS has metal decoration trim plate above the license plate, the ATS has it below the license plate.

    I know, it is a little confusing, the new CTS uses LED rear lights that are in the corner light units and no longer besides the license plate, as in previous models.

    Every time that I think that I see an ATS, it always turned out to be a CTS. Plus I have seen lots of XTS's, but no ATS yet.

    Maybe they are too fast....

    Re: Have you seen another ATS on the road?

    I haven't seen many at all and I live in Detroit metro. I'm delighted by this of course, because I passed over the CTS and Beemer 3 in the past in part due to their ubiquity. I do expect this will change, but I don't see a scenario where they become as commonplace as the CTS, which are pretty much everywhere.

    I saw a raven premium when I was on vacation in San Diego, and I have seen a gray performance here in Austin so far. I rented a 2.5L raven luxury at National here in Austin. Most people will probably not be able to tell the difference between an ATS and a CTS. I know my wife can't despite a great deal of training. :-)

    Yeah, I guess that we both noticed the same thing.

    Anyway, two recent pics, first one of a CTS that looked like an ATS from far away - and yes, the brow gave it away.

    And second, the MT COTY, of which I see many around here.

    First is a crop from a cell-phone image, the quality is soso.

    Still haven't seen another ATS around here yet.

    Re: Have you seen another ATS on the road?

    Finally saw my first ATS on the road!!!! I've been looking for a long time! It was in Cleveland, and it was turning out of a Panera's and it was black. I know you guys love that color, but boy, it sure makes the ATS seem smaller than what it is when you see it on the road....

    I live in the Bay Area and I have not seen a single ATS on the road.

    I'm in Southern California (which is admittedly more BMW & Mercedes country), and I'm yet to see another ATS on the road, which, considering that I commute 125 miles a day including driving by three Cadillac dealerships, is pretty remarkable. On the up-side though, my own opulent blue ATS has gotten a lot of stares from fellow drivers, including one guy in a van who stuck his whole head out his drivers side window to ogle it has he slowly oozed by in the lane next to me in stop and go traffic.

    I'm mainly on the I-5, on the central Orange County to northern San Diego county run.

    Only one - and it was M plated. Nothing worth taking a spy shot for....

    Ditto, and ditto.

    I thought I saw one the other day, but it turned out to be a CTS coupe.

    Having looked at dealer inventories I figure there must be at least 50 out there. While it is unscientific, they don't seem to be selling quickly here.

    I have had two people pay a lot of interest in the car, asking questions etc. and I do notice it turns heads, particularly down in Silicon Valley. Obviously not turning into big sales though. The car deserves to be more popular.
