    that's pretty cool

    so what does all that fine print say?

    and what is actually in the box?

    The fold out on the left is for your night drive, it's a fold out of the constellations. Top one is your first scenic drive, its a single lens binocular. Center is for your first night out, its a tin of Altoids. Bottom is for your first road workout, its a spray bottle of Evian facial spray. Right side is for your first sunny saturday, its a microfiber cloth. Pretty cool, I was surprised to get this, I guess there trying hard to promote this car.

    it's pretty common to get some sort of 'welcome' kit for new models but this is a bit different (and much better, IMHO) than what the XTS folks got

    What, no Trojans?
    Don't they know you can get pregnant on the first time?

    XTS buyers get an iPad.

    Re: Box of "Firsts"

    2013 ATS owners (with CUE systems) get iPads also ... the gift box i was mentioning about the XTS was pretty cheap/cheesy in comparison to this

    these gift boxes only go to the first few thousand purchasers (not sure how many exactly but probably in the 10s of thousands)

    I was thinking in the time frame from when bluhaven bought his/her ATS and when i bought mine. Now that i realize the vehicle has been on sale since Aug 2012? the chance of getting a "First" gift is much slimmer..

    Re: Box of "Firsts"

    I got my ATS in late November, and I think the gift box came in early January.
    I put the monocular in the glove box, in case I need to scope something.
