Thank you kindly, the wheels are the gunmetal grey offered with Midnight Edition package. They look pretty dark until you notice the contrast from the black centre caps. I think almost every matte or gloss black wheel would look much better if it were dark grey instead. Black wheels end up making the car look like it's got snow tire steel rims on. :D

I have to say the paint colour you chose looks terrific, and matches Cadillac polo green paint once offered on the STS. Look how great it also looks here:

I agree on the wheels. That’s an OG STS for sure. The color does look similar. Would love to see that stanced 😂

Dude the green with those wheels in dark gray, it looks so good. That shade really works on your coupe, one beautiful car man!

I appreciate it fellas. This build has a long one to go. I’m gonna finish the carbon fiber skinning on the interior pieces. A new steering wheel. That’s all most likely cosmetically.
Then on to more performance mods to get 350hp. I think it’s a reasonable number without risking the reliability. Nice daily with a little kick.

With Covid-19 cases on the rise I’ve been tell-working and had some free time. Painted the wheels and calipers
Love the calipers, what paint/decals were used?

Gorgeous looking car!

Honestly, I have yet to see a style as timeless as the ATS, sedan or coupe. Great looking car IMO. I started browsing for a manual coupe on Auto Trader recently... might have to pull the trigger one day.

IMO the e90 3 series, the S5 (09-17), and the 04-07 Acura TL are all of the best for me. The ATS is surprisingly getting a lot of aftermarket support as it ages. Not your normal “tuner/sports” car.

Well, I can't disagree with that wheel choice there. ;) Super sharp man.

What specs did you go with? My only suggestion would be to maybe push out the rears.
You’re the inspiration!

Most likely want a little darker finish and custom center caps.

I was thinking the same maybe 5mm-10 mm spacers. It will definitely happen if I do a subtle drop. If I add the ATS-V side skirts It may have the “look” of the drop I want. I’ll have to customize those though 🤦🏽‍♂️

I got the tune by ZZP and it def wakes her up a bit.

First hand wash of the spring. New wheels as well.
Delightful paint. Same as the '69 Vette Fathom Green. That I don't have anymore. Color me depressed. But as mentioned you just don't see that on current models = distinctive.
