    But those parts are separate from the seat color/design options. It does not double the number of parts for seats.
    So the back of the seat doesn't even warm up? Just the bottom half? My old SRX had just ok heated seats, all 5 of my VW cars had heated seats and not just the back and bottom, but the side bolsters of the seats too. The SRX had minimal coverage and the ATS, well, I'm the OP and my $50k car DOES NOT HAVE THEM :-P

    Because you didn't order it with them (or you bought one that was ordered without them).

    I think those who think they are saving 600 bucks because they don't need heated seats are delusional. Do you really think your paying less because it's an option? The ATS is a few thousand more than an equally equipped Audi A4 that I was also looking at buying but the Audi came with heated seats and sunroof std. caddy should include heated seats with their top of the line premium pkg because I would bet that 90 percent of North America ATS owners would want it. I just think that the reason they make more things optional isn't to save you money if you don't wan't them it's so they can charge you more if you do.

    Hello mate, I am one of those delusional people you mentioned! I was looking at A4s too, but I ended up choosing the ATS performance because it is a better car in terms of dynamics, chassis, and fit and finish. That extra thousand dollars you mentioned have been spent to buy the better car! MSRP for my ATS is $45k, and it doesn't come with heated seats, and I don't need it. I live in Hawaii! I used to live in Arizona before, and my old STS had heated seats, but I never used them. And before Arizona, I was in Florida, and my Regal didn't have heated seats, and I never felt that I need them in Florida.

    I owned 2 A4's and they both were AWD. I would not knock the Audi A4, they are great driving cars. The ATS is the first American car to draw me away from my Audis. Right now I'm not too pleased with My ATS. After waiting two weeks for a new engine to be installed in my ATS my wife got a half block from the dealership before the check engine light came on again. Now its back at the dealers for more work!

    Re: Big ATS problem...

    Well I finally got my car back. The dealer told me that Cadillac took a complete engine right off the assembly line and shipped it to them. The engine came complete with the turbo and everything attached and it even had the oil in it. They didn't send a crate engine like he thought because they wanted the original engine untouched so they could take it apart.

    I am happy that they took a good care of you. In mass production, sometimes a few bad products end up in customers hands. The important thing is how the company handles the case.
