    Silver Coast Metallic ATS

    Would love to see "in person" pictures of an ATS w/ Silver Coast Metallic paint. At the moment this is my first choice, but the shades are different in appearance between the ATS and XTS vehicle web sites. I'd expect the ATS color to be more realistic.

    Current plan will be the 2.0L Turbo, Performance RWD w/ 18" wheels and Morello Red w/ Black interior. In virtual world this looks like an awesome combination, but don't expect my local dealer (Iowa) to have one anytime soon. Will order in spring 2013. Goodbye 2007 CTS.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Don't worry about it. Just go for that comb, it will be a knockout. Long time frame - maybe you will see one on the road. Meanwhile, ask dealer to call you when he gets one in that color, or check inventory online.

    Saw one here at a local dealer the other day, it was a Performance. Looked great in the showroom. Had the machined wheels and Lt. platinum interior. Sharp looking color though. Sorry I didn't snap a pic.

    The dealer in Melbourne has three of them in. red, silver, and a gold one. Got to sit in the silver one, wasn't very satisfied with the seat comfortability...maybe it wasn't adjusted right, or maybe its their way of convincing people to order the $3,000 Recaro's, idk. But, I LOVED everything else about the car. Sorry didn't take any pics of them, maybe I'll run over this weekend and take another look. The Red Jewel one they had was a beautiful car. silver looked good to, im not so much for the gold though.

    Re: Silver Coast Metallic ATS

    I saw Silver Coast on a couple of CTSs, and it really reminds me of the old Gold Mist from 2008 and 2009. The lighting conditions (sun vs overcast, darkness, sunset, etc) affect it a lot. I didn't care for it, but it is easily the easiest color to keep clean. Dirt will not show on it. The wheel choice will make a big difference, as the color and finish of the wheel will affect the perception of the color more than most colors.

    Tlorenzen: Recaros are not available in the ATS, but the sport seats in the Performance and Premium collections were much more comfortable to me than the base seats, whether leather or vinyl. The base seats felt thinly padded, and were just not that supportive. The sport seats were much more supportive. Their lateral support isn't great, but adequate for most purposes, and they are wide enough to accommodate most frames, IMO.

    I saw a silver coast metallic XTS next to a pearl white....no comparison.....the pearl white blew away the duller looking silver coast, which IMHO actually has a green tinge to it.

    Re: Silver Coast Metallic ATS

    Thanks to Tlorenzen, yes any picture will do versus brochure material. I've had my share of red, white, silver, etc. cars and am keeping an open mind on some of the not so common colors. Looking for the right shade that enhances the chrome, LED's, wheels, tail lights and so on. So far I've seen red, black and white ATS's in person (must be standard for first cars on lot). Maybe Opulent Blue can do it for me?

    I actually liked the grey one sitting next to my car. Something different is always nice, I'm still parcial to the red though. By the way, this was taken with my phone camera, so the colors probably aren't perfect..

    Re: Silver Coast Metallic ATS

    Feedback please..........if you had to decide on a color that made the most visual statement and (1) accented the lines, (2) color contrast (of everything) and (3) looked like a gem, what is your choice?

    Thanks.

    Re: Silver Coast Metallic ATS

    In order, (Pictured) Red, Grey, and then a Pearl White. I honestly find that silver bland. The chrome doesn't stick out, the black doesn't really go with it(oppionated) and the rims just don't go. Sure you could make it look great with some appearance mods but for stock, I don't like it.

    The Grey, Red, and Pearl white also can look extremely well when modded right.

    Red looks the best out of all of them stock. Sporty and Classy.
    Pearl White - Classy
    Grey - A hint of sporty with a hint of class.
    Silver - I'll relate it to a ginger - no soul. (hope not to offend haha)

    This is all opinnionated, so if you don't agree then thats that.

    I would prioritize as follows: pearl white, red, silver coast metallic and gold...the rest of the colors I don't care for.
