    Default New Whip

    Traded the Challenger over the weekend and picked this up. It's a 2017 Cadillac ATS 2.0T Luxury. Pretty neat little car so far except I don't know how to change the radio channel.

    I can't figure out Photobucket. It's black with light platinum interior and polished wheels.

    Photobucket has changed their policy so that you can't embed your photos on other sites, unless you pay them for that privilege.

    Congrats, although bitter you're leaving the Challenger fold so soon after I entered it


    BTW, isn't "Luxury" as a submodel classification of a Cadillac kinda redundant?
    Beat, um, somebody!

    Really wish Cadillac would go back to names and not letters. So much more American tradition than the European influenced letters.
    But it's a great ride

    Beautiful

    Lol, "Luxury" is a submodel. I guess the base one is pretty nasty.

    Not quite as fancy but I just picked up a new Honda Civic Si. Mine is Black. The transmission went out on my old car and it wasn't worth the cost of repair.

    Rg you can upload pics here. Then copy the code. If you click on your screen name in the upper right corner your control panel comes up. Your albums are on right side. Click on that and you can upload.

    I would love to see it

    It's fun for sure. Lots of tech on the inside too. I test drove a Toyota 86 as well and I could tell that would also be fun to drive, maybe even more so, but the Civic has a bit more space and gets about 10 miles more per gallon, almost 40 on the highway. I'm 6'3" so "more space" was the difference between the drivers seat touching the back seat in the 86 and actually having a little space for somebody's legs in the Civic. Felt like it would be good to have the option to carry 4 if needed. The 86 also lacked some of the bells and whistles that the Si has from the tech side of things, backup camera, push button start, etc.

    Not sure if you've seen what the 17 and 18 models look like but they're pretty sweet.

    I had read a few people were concerned the Si would be too techy and I know some writers were sketchy about it being turbo. But hell, everything's turbo now. All 911's are turbo. BMW's are turbo. My Cadillacs a turbo. And I think it's great.

    I had 3 of them. I put the most miles I've ever put on a car on the black one. I was just about to turn 30K. I was just ready for something different and I've secretly wanted an ATS since the first time I ever saw one. Might buy an old 6.1 SRT as a toy one day but I'd rather a Challenger be a weekend car for me.

    Been on this board a long time. Can't believe RG is still using the term 'whip'. I thought I was about to see a Chrysler Conquest.
