I have to agree with you. I think I've said "this sounds pretty damn good for a V6" at least 5-10 times in 24 hours. Coming from 6 LS engine cars, with a Z06 being the most recent, I never thought I'd enjoy the sound of a V6 again. I will be on the hunt for a catback!

This is my first V6 engined car and the engine and exhaust note is better than I expected. I too have had some V8 Corvettes and they sounded great. Expecially mine had a cam and headers.

I can understand wanting an aftermarket exhaust, but I think this stock exhaust is pretty good when compared to other cars stock exhaust systems. Good job GM!

Agree 100%. Maybe even a mild the wild type exhaust like I had on my C6 Z... That would have been easy to do, and wouldn't have pushed the price point much.

The carbon fiber trim that comes standard with the red interior has red thread woven into it, but I can't see any red in these pics. Is there any red in your new trim pieces, or is there an option for the carbon fiber that doesn't have any red in it? I have the same car as you but RWD.

Ground effects from GM. I hope it fixes the rock chips happening in front of my rear wheels... That isn't as much me wanting to improve the look of the car as trying to get them to own up to a design failure... I received the ZR1 ground effects for my Z06 and it fixed the rock chips in front of my rear wheels. MAYBE the same will be true for the ATS... (Crossing my fingers)

In front of the rear wheel is getting rock chips from the tires throwing stuff forward. It's right on the edge so the 3M won't cover it. I'm hoping the ground effects has a similar design to the ZR1 kit.

The ATS Opulent Blue hands down has the most beautiful blue exterior paint I've ever seen on a car. Not even an Estoril, Lapis, or Deep Sea blues can compare IMO. It just blends with the curves and the accents of the ATS much better than anything else in its segment.
