    You know you own an ATS when...

    before we start, I dont want a life story about shitty dealer experiences, QUE explosions etc... but if you've been on an automotive forum before you know what this is they CAN become a lot of fun

    You know you own a manual ATS when..

    When you have a drink in the cupholder and and shifting becomes a lot more annoying to do. (awful placement of the cup holders)

    You know you own an ATS when you never miss an apex.

    When you put 1000 miles on it in 2 weeks because you don't want to get out of it.

    ...you can finally let go of the exotic in your garage because the car in your driveway is a worthwhile substitute experience.

    When you try to fit a bunch of stuff in the trunk and realize due to the trunk's protrusions it doesn't fit - and immediately toss it figuring you didn't need it anyway.

    When a tall friend gets in the back and has to crouch a little to get in and complains why you didn't get a bigger car and you respond "why aren't you smaller and lighter? You're throwing off the weight distribution.

    When you pop the hood looking for the clutch resivoir to fill the fluid and spend hours looking for it.

    When you ask a shop to top off the fluids and you watch THEM looking for the clutch resivoir and laugh to yourself.

    When you continually wonder whether or not someone would think the shifter is "notchy".

    When you find yourself narrating releasing the electronic parking brake as "release docking clamps" (a female friend of mine calls my car "spaceship" and started that).

    When you get in and hear the "bwwoom" noise from the stereo and someone goes "welcome to the car!"

    When you have been driving a XTS for the last month because your ATS is still in the shop.

    It could be worse than that, trust me! Something like Ford Fusion and Chrysler 300 (V6 of course).... I cannot describe how happy I was when I got back my ATS!

    When you travel from S FL to run the Blue Ridge Parkway just to see how it handles, then continue on home all smiles.

    When you take it to the cadillac track day and more people are interested in your car than the CTS-V's

    When you enjoy explaining to the uninformed that you're not driving a CTS.
