    I have never seen anything like it. It's the best.

    I haven't seen the tri-coat in person but the pics look really nice. My brother chose the Raven over the Tri- coat because when he looked at the two side by side he said the tri-coat almost looked grey and the raven looked much darker and that's what he preferred. My 14 is going to be the Red Obsession Tintcoat and I was wondering if it had the metal flake in it also. I really like the black paint on the ATS but decided to go red this time because every other Cadillac I see is black.

    Black or silver seems to be more common I agree. I'm sure that red will look great too and really stand out, nice choice!

    I agree the Black Raven is very popular along with the silver but the tri-coat you have is unique and you don't see too many of them. I'm one of those cheap guys who doesn't like paying extra for special paint jobs but I wanted something different on the 14. My last 5 cars have either been black or red, I guess you could say I'm a big fan of either.

    Are the 2014 ATS's being shipped yet? What is your estimated arrival date?

    My dealer called and my car is scheduled to be built next week. I'm not sure how long it will take before it hits my dealers lot.

    That's signifies how many doors are on the car. LOL! Not really, that is how many ATS's he owns, or is it the fourth one built? OK what it really signifies is that it's AWD.

    That's understandable, where I live just south of Buffalo NY most of the Cadillacs are AWD and for good reason.
