    It Came!! RB 2.0T RWD Standard!

    so yeah I'm seriously excited, after 4.5 weeks of waiting I finally took delivery of my ATS!! I love it! (besides the lack of flanking LEDS!!) but seriously sharp car, well build, no clunks or rattles and the interior is just flawless!!! I ordered it without the CUE, I just didn't need it, I do like CUE, but to me it wasn't worth the extra cash, the base radio sounds fine to me and has the USB/Aux inputs I need













    and... saying good bye to my old friend little heart breaking, but then again, I get bored with cars quick, and the quality of the ATS to my cobalt is just Apples to roofing nails lol!



    I think at 23 years old this is a damn good car to own and I'm sooooo glad to have FINALLY taken delivery!!!

    Awesome ride man. What a "step up" from the Cobalt. You're going to love it.

    Nice car Stevo! I like the cobalt salute there too. Very touching. How do you like the manual so far? Was the cobalt a stick?

    haha thanks, the cobalt really was a good car, I was just bored still with it

    and yes the cobalt was a 2.0 Supercharged 5 speed manual

    and I LOVE the manual in this car, its a bit notchy, but as some people reported and hated, the shifter vibrates, but I kinda like that, not gonna lie lol.

    Oh and BUmped as I added new pics of it all cleaned up tody!

    Aw yeah. Real clean. Mine is identical on the outside. Waxed mine yesterday and today too - love weekends. How is the manual in the ats compared to the cobalt? I think it's decent, but I have nothing to compare it to.

    well, I do love cobalts.. but I have to say, the cobalt has the notchiest piece of shit transmission I've ever driven.

    Its like working an old victorian steam machine lever really. Compared to my cobalt this is just the most amazing transmission ever lol.

    Weekends are awesome I agree, especially when its sunny and warm out in that nice march gap lol! figured I'd clean it and take some pics

    and yours looks identical? gotta love raven black eh? really really sharp, I'm glad I went with it. I'm a little disappointed it doesn't have the LED running lights or fog lamps though

    Re: It Came!! RB 2.0T RWD Standard!

    Yeah I thought the ATS's manual was OK, but I still find it a little difficult to drive smoothly, especially in the lower gears. Maybe it's just my overall lack of skill.

    I was between the silver and the black. My wife thought the black might drive me crazy, but the silver makes the plastic fake bumper "vents" stick out more IMO. I'm glad I went with the black. Maybe in a year or two I'll regret it but right now I love it. 2 coats of carnuba and I'm happy.

    Sorry for the bad pic - I don't want to pull it out of the garage! It's the standard model with CUE and a sunroof.

    And I agree; if Cadillac comes out with an LED accessory kit I'll be the first in line. Just didn't think it was worth the extra money with the package upgrades that it takes to get them.

    very nice^ yeah I said no more black cars after my cobalt.. but the Black caddy just looked too damned sharp not to get!! and I hate silver cars, it really does make the black plastic more obvious haha!

    These cars are sorta hard to drive smoothly, but I hear it gets easier as you break them in, just shift higher and its easier to make it smooth.

    Congrats on the ATS! I can't wait to trade my base 5spd manual cobalt coupe, and your right about the transmission on the cobalt. Oh yea , at first I didn't know yours was an SS because of the wheels.

    Re: It Came!! RB 2.0T RWD Standard!

    thanks everyone! I'm absolutely LOVING this car!!! really nothing bad I can say about it.. except.. the headlights really do suck, I'll be honest lol.

    and yeah, just after I cleaned it I could help but keep looking out the window at it, my girlfriend thinks its a damn good lookin car as well Surprisingly these stock wheels look good in person, pictures just make them look much plainer.

    I already had the side orange markers tinted, they just stuck out like a sore thumb lol and got bright white LEDS for the reverse lamp as the yellow was ugly lol

    and yeah its an SS Supercharged cobalt, but before I traded it in I swapped the bumper with the lip on it for the SS 2.4 bumper with someone and those are the winter wheels. I left the front stock bumper and side skirts though as I couldn't find another person with a black car to trade those with lol. But you know what I mean about the cobalt transmissions, SS or LS they #$@^* suck!

    I'm getting used to driving this car, it doesn't have the same god awful revhang that the cobalt has, I just need to let off the clutch earlier, but this car gets moving pretty damn well. I'm not used to turbo's I've been driving a supercharged car for 3 years. It's weird how up until 3.5K RPM there's nothing then suddenly *WHOOOSSSHHHHH*** and the rest of traffic starts moving backwards

    Oh and now that I've had a taste of RWD I'm NEEEVVVERRRR going back to FWD
