    A small consolation prize... No obligation, you can return at any time and you can keep the iPad as our free gift.......

    Since I knew nothing about the IPAD promotion until I was told about it on the day I went shopping for an ATS and eventually drove out with one that night-wasn't aware that they started giving out IPAD4 when they came out.

    Does any one know when they started givng out 4. I get the feeling from some of the posts that they probably had both the 3 and the 4 in when I took delivery of my car in late Feb and since I didn't ask or know any better-they just gave me the older model. Anybody receive an IPAD 4 around late Feb or earlier.

    Other people buying in February reported getting an iPad 4.

    The dealers did not do a good job of giving customers their iPads which resulted in subsequent customers getting older model iPads the dealer had sitting for some time. I was lucky enough to read that in these forums and confirmed it when I ordered our ATS in late Feb. The iPads don't arrive with the cars but I made it a condition of the sale that I received the LAST iPad they had received when I took delivery. FWIW The salesman did say there was no way to tell from the outside of the box which iPad was inside it.

    correct, there's no way for us to know which iPad is inside the boxes until you open them up

    Re: iPad 3 with purchase?

    Bought our ATS in late May and apparently got an iPad 3 ... it still has the old style charger cable. Now we have two of them in the house ... mine and hers.

    It has some preloaded Cadillac software that's really pretty neat (e.g., owner's manual, CUE demo) but if I recall correctly it was registered to Cadillac and you had to cancel that and register under your own name. And it has a Cadillac cover. Not sure they'd be all that sellable.

    After we'd had the car a couple of weeks, FedEx delivered a nice book with the history of Cadillacs. Everybody get that too?

    I got the book also. Thought it was another IPAD before I opened the box. Book makes a good doorstop though.

    Received two of them, about 10 days apart.

    I am glad you made that clear. For a moment I thought you sold the book for $ 425. I almost went hunting for mine.

    I bought a 2013 ATS 2.0 Turbo this past Monday and was totally surprised when the salesman handed me an iPad 4 as I didn't know anything about this promotion. It was a very nice surprise.

    I considered it a Bonus even though I am sure we paid!

    it was a bonus, look at it this way, the price didn't drop $500 for '14 buyers who don't get an ipad. the promotion was for an iPad 3 and thats it, i'm guessing newer ones became 4's in a silent change and no packaging difference. i'm sure this was an unintended consequence of apple's short run then switch to ipad 4 that upset a lot of 3 buyers myself included, wife was upset after i spent $970 on a 64 gig Verizon ipad w/applecare for work and apple does this outside my return window
    i ended up getting a 4 with my ATS, but i suspect Cadillac never intended to have 4's in the pipeline.
