    Well that didn't last long..

    I'm out, loved the ats. But I grew bored quickly... Deal of a lifetime came up on my dream car and I jumped.

    Bye bye ats, it was short but sweet.

    I'm sure I'll have a caddy again one day. Maybe by the time I pay this off the V coupe will be out.

    Maybe you and I should rent cars by the month. I bought a 2011 STS on Feb 18 and sold it April 4.

    Nice trade! I've had a few C5's myself. You'll be back sooner than you know it.

    Now invest in some good Laser Jammers as Brunswick can be get busy!

    Gotta invest in some new winter transportation before I do anything to the vette.

    I'm sure I'll have another caddy soon enough. Love the cars, just missing something though (that 4 cyl wasn't enough for me)

    I can't go through cars quickly. If I love them enough to buy them, I keep them.

    Happy for you OP, curious why you went with the 4 door if you had your heart set on a real sports car?

    Just had a hankoring for an ATS?

    It wasn't the 4 door that was the problem, in fact a Cts-v is high on my list of must haves also.

    I had a g8 gxp and I really missed shifting and the obnoxiousness of the v8

    I did have a Cts in the past and loved it, and I was going from two cars to one, I guess I assumed the caddy could replace both.

    The ats was a gorgeous car, and part of me misses it. But I need a little drama in my drive apparently, and I guess a 4cyl automatic awd caddy wasn't the way to go. In all honesty I tried to at my g8 back but it's age made it hard to deal with banks.

    The aggressive pricing on the c6 and 0% financing made it really easy to make a choice. Maybe I'll look into the ats again when the v comes out.

    Congratulations - I do love my ATS, but the C6 is a wonderful car. And I think the Grand Sport is a Z06 sans Z06 engine, right? Have fun!

    I don't have this problem as my second car is a 2000 Corvette with only 60,000 miles. I face a decision every day ..... Which car to take.

    While we're sad to see the ATS leave you so soon, we hope that you thoroughly enjoy your new Corvette this summer!
    All the best,
