Re: RR's 2014 ATS

Found a plug & play OBD module that lets you roll your windows down/up with the key fob. It only came on 2015+ ATS's but this has gotten good reviews so decided to try it out.

Also got my white carbon fiber badge inlays in, you can kind of see it on the first pic. Steering wheel emblem was damn tedious due to how small it is. I left the red and black there.

Re: RR's 2014 ATS 6spd 2.0T

Test fitted a high rise carbon fiber trunk spoiler, it's a copy of what comes on the ATS-V sedan. I am trying to decide whether I want to leave it as-is or paint match it. Or maybe partially paint it.

Did a quick photoshop with the top and sides painted white but the back left carbon fiber, side by side with it all painted. Really thought I wanted to do something like the left at first but the more I look at it I'm not sure I do. I might run it as CF for now and if I get tired of that then paint the whole thing.

What it looks like painted (this is an ATS V):

Re: RR's 2014 ATS 6spd 2.0T

GM and their dumb bolt patterns, this car is 5x115 but most people seem to be using 5x114.3 with hubcentric rings. Even though the difference is extremley minimal, I struggle with the idea of running wheels out of spec.

Just out of curiousity I tried putting the Works on, slid right on until I realized I was having a dummy moment and the hub bore of the ATS is 73.1. Anyway still researching wheels.

Yea that's the plan. Never been big into CF but it's grown on me. Going to run it this way for now, then paint if when I'm ready for a change.

Re: RR's 2014 ATS 6spd 2.0T

^Ha nope I wanted to paint it all white initially but my paint guy got too busy to do side work and I thought I may as well enjoy the CF a little bit before I cover it up. So I am going to try running it raw for a while, then I'll paint it when I get tired of it. Also when I add the lip kit that will give me a better idea depending on how it all flows.

I was surprised I liked the works with pearl white too, thought it might be too gaudy at first haha. But like the gold on your Enkei's it is more of a muted gold so it works.

Re: RR's 2014 ATS 6spd 2.0T

i'd say plan on painting it white unless you plan on adding more CF to the front or sides of the car. Painted is just so much of a cleaner look especially on a white car

or you could paint all of it except for around the brake light


or paint the front and back sections and leave the side/upper section CF like the beamer guys do
