Hey Guys,

Wanted to join this forum sooner, but you know, work (that pays for this car) got in the way.

So, here I am posting some pictures of my ride that I've taken over the past 3-4 months.

Nice looking ride. Don't see those wheels too often as they weren't producing them for a while. I can see not needing the cold weather package in CA so in reality, almost loaded :o

Those wheels looks stunning! They fill in the car so good no wonder it cost an upgrade Polished Alloys :) vs Machined-Finish (Standard on Premium trim)

who's that in the 3rd picture?

Doesn't look like a 24yr old.

I also like the rims more than I thought I would.

Great car. What options do you have?

My dad LOL! He could not help but come and check out the car when I took delivery. He had never seen it until that day. :)

After I told him all the bells n whistles that I got, he could not help but want to see it for himself. He's the one that got me into cars and technology. He and I disagreed on whether or not I should get the ATS vs. the TSX.

I went for the Premium Collection in Black Raven with a Morello Red interior and added Power Sunroof, 18" Polished Aluminum Wheels, and the rear spoiler.

Can you take any better, close-up shots of the carbon interior trim? I'd love to see some detail of that.

If it were my dad, after seeing the ATS, he would tell me: "You see son? I told you! This is why young immature kids like you should listen to wiser people! You should thank me that I didn't allow you to buy the Acura!" :D

He wanted me to buy the TSX... I wanted to buy the ATS. :) All of the reviews and technical details and my own personal feelings pretty much backed up my side.

it's a very nice 2x2 twill with a red thread laced in. it's just about perfect I'll post some up if OP doesn't get to it first.

My dad is a three-time engineer. Most engineers drive Hondas or Toyotas, he's been an electrical, mechanical, and a software engineer. He likes practical and boring.

I'll get you the pics shortly on my D800 should come out nicely.

yeah, they look absolutely amazing. I looked at the prices I saw somewhere else I saw in this forum and I had no idea that they were an $1,100 option. WOW.
