    Anticipating an ATS in Colorado

    Yesterday I ordered a Premium 2.0L ATS AWD. It's in red with a caramel interior with cold weather package. Was unable to find the car I wanted at any of the dealers around Denver, so I'll wait the 6 to 10 weeks for delivery. I'm excited contemplating this new car as I've been hoping for a long time to someday own a GM car but wanted a turbo all wheel drive car that weighed around 3,400 lbs. The ATS fits the bill perfectly and I love the styling. I have been driving turbo AWD cars since 1992 when I bought an Eclipse GSX. I owned several turbo eclipses over the years until 2005. Mitsubishi got out of that business because of the low take rate and so I bought a 2006 Subaru Legacy GT. I later added a Cobb stage 1 tune and the car is quite nice to drive (~285hp). However, ever since I bought that car I have been looking for something like the ATS. I'm hoping this will the awesome ride I've been looking for.

    You're going to love it. I also got the Premium 2.0T AWD, but mine is Black Diamond/Morello Red.
    I've had mine up in the mountains a few times and it's been a blast carving around the turns.
    But I got stuck once behind an old Ford Pinto, so I backed way off... didn't want that thing to explode in flames. hahaha...

    It's also great fun to drive down in the city. It's an awesome car and I love it.
    I've had mine for almost 3 months, and I've only seen one other ATS on the road here in the DTC area.

    Cheers,
    Mark

    Black diamond & morello red are an awesome color and interior. When I saw the black diamond at the dealer I was really blown away and almost changed my mind on the color. I also wanted the morello red interior really bad but didn't want red on red. I have yet to see an ATS "in the wild". No word yet on production date/week...still anticipating...if I don't hear from the sale guy by Friday I'm gonna bug him.

    Also anticipating...Ontario, Canada.
    Ordered Jan. 22, dealer called today...letting me know build week is March 18.
    Getting Radiant Silver, Platinum with black accents, 18" rims and sunroof....RWD
    So, won't need winter tires right away. Hoping CUE updates will be part of my build.
    Car should be broken in by the time the good weather gets here.

    Congrats and thanks for the info. Looks like an 8 week lead time. Since my order was a week and a half later, that would put my build around the end of March...we'll see if that's how it works. Same here on the CUE update.
