    What did you drive before your ATS? (pic thread)

    I came from an '06 Grand Prix GT (supercharged) Had 145,000 miles on it when I got rid of it this winter, but had no dings or anything on it at all. Still looked fantastic. I had quite a few appearance mods inside and out, but not a single go fast mod.

    OK, I'll bite, especially because I probably had the most miserable dog of a car of anyone on the forum, unless they had a moped. But, I liked it and it got incredible mileage. 2000 Honda Insight. 3-cyl, 1.0 liter engine. Ran the tires at about 55psi and
    in all honesty, it wasn't a bad car once you got used to it.
    When I say "incredible mileage" I mean it had an 11-gallon tank, empty-to-full. I once drove from Washington DC to Pendleton, SC (500 miles), two days of around town, and almost 1/3 back on a single tank of gas. Serious hypermilers prefer this car and routinely report 1000-mile tanks.

    But, it didn't have CUE.

    Loved my 2002 745li but it killed my wallet at times. I started to do all the work myself. It got to the point where I had to make my own tools for the car. Instead of buying tools from the dealer. Not to mention the fiber optic stereo in it. "]http://

    I had a Chevette...

    But enough about me. CVT or manual? I like the first gen Insights. Silver or that lime green color would be my choice.

    BTW, the Chevette was a "Why not" purchase. Clean and low mileage for $500, lol,

    What made you go from a car like that to something like the ATS? That's quite a difference.

    I drove a panther black 2009 Pontiac G8gt; bone stock so no need for a picture. I also had a heavily modded 2004 Toyota Matrix XR making 317whp. See video below (contains music):

    I have to admit I loved this specific BMW model.

    Re: What did you drive before your ATS? (pic thread)

    I miss the car .The ride was unmatched.As you all know the motors are under rated. For that heavy car it had balls. It was ahead of it's time. But when something goes wrong be prepared to pay. Really wish I kept it now as a third car but who needs a third car. This car had not 1 dent in it. On trade in of coarse they wanted to rip me off. It's possible I will get another one down the road for weekend trips. But after this ATS i'm not looking back.
