Very nice! I realy like the machined finish aluminum wheels. I'm not a big fan of the optional polished aluminum wheels. My Black Raven Premium with the Red interior was built last week and I'm hoping it will be delivered this week. I'll post pics then.

Beautiful car. Hope to get one of these in a few years..possibly a V by then. Congrats on the purchase.

Traditional cluster gauge with CUE? Hmm.

That red is certainly well selected for the style of the ATS! Too bold for me though.

Did it come with an iPad as I gather some of the ATS have in the USA?

Love the wheels, also had to opt for them on mine as well. none of the others seemed to be sporty enough.

I don't think all US ATS's are coming with iPads.

All ATS's with the CUE systems in the US get an iPad. No CUE no iPad. Just got mine last week.

Very nice car; congrats! Great pictures. I would recommend removing the dealer sticker above the ATS. First thing I do and actually my sales rep took it off. LOL

The cadillac press release states that all XTS's with CUE get iPads (mentions nothing about the ATS). Did your car come with the iPad in it, or did the salesman say Surprise, here's your iPad?!?!? Don't get me wrong. I hope you are correct! I've been putting off buying an iPad for years now.

My ATS (3.6L Premium) came with an iPad as well. He told me once I said sold.

iPad3, 16GB, WiFi It also has a Cadillac cover and Cadillac on the backside. Very nice box too.

Same with me. They did not have the newest iPad3 (with lightning port) that was just released last month because Cadillac already stocked and pre-loaded their manuals, but it's still an iPad 3 with Retina. 16GB wi-fi. Nice branding on Cadillac's part - smart cover logo, engraving on back of iPad and wallpaper, plus nice textured black box as Cisitalia stated.

Just found out (thanks for sharing this info). Your dealer will receive your iPad just before delivery if the vehicle and it is given to you at the time of "purchase." This might be a good tool to use to figure out when your car will show up at the dealer...

Sure. Was thanking everyone for sharing the free iPad info. Then I went on to explain what my salesman explained to me. The dealership that you ordered your ATS from will receive an iPad a few days before said ordered car arrives. When you "take delivery" of your new ATS they hand you the iPad that arrived days before. Sorry about the confusing post. Was on the phone with a vendor while I was typing.

Lol!!! I bought my wife a MAC, so that shouldn't happen. On the other hand, my car may disappear at times... I wish they offered a V6 with a manual.... That might help my situation.
