Hi all:
Well, just registered on here though I don't own a Cadillac, I was hoping to trade in the wife's 328. My question has to do with the windshield on the ATS. Does anyone know the dimensions of it? My wife is a creative director for an advertising firm and they are outfitting an ATS for one of her clients and she has to mock up a banner to fit the windshield.

Any help would be appreciated.

Best regards!

This is the internet. Your wife would be one brave person to make a banner based solely on forum input. If neither of you can get to a dealer to measure, I suggest calling a dealer and asking them. But if you proceed using just forum input, make sure you "ask twice, cut once".

You're right. And I've tried. Only to be left on hold. I was hoping someone close to theirs would know, or actually be helpful and measure for me.

Okay. The windshield is a pretty typical trapezoid, but the top and bottom edges have a gentle curve to them. Also, the lower corners inside the fenders have an approx 2.5" radius curve on them.

That said:
the top edge is 46" across
The bottom edge is 56" across (if the corners were sharp and not rounded...)
The edge along the A pillar is 31"
The line down the center is roughly 30"

So a slight curve on the edges but generally trapezoidal.

lol, fat chance of that happening.

'phone callers' are not 'people' to car dealerships. The only purpose of a phone conversation with a sales person, or anyone there is to get you to show up at the dealership.

sometimes logic and common sense interferes with reality.
