Oooouuuuuu niceee
Thanks man, I feel very fortunate. I also am sure I am the only Accord owner ever to have gone to a Cadillac haha. But they're not the brand they used to be, they are making very athletic and sporty cars now. People can't believe it's a manual and has a turbo. :lawl:

TSX still looks nice, love that color on it.

Yup! Cadillac benchmarked the e46 3-series for developing the chassis and handling dynamics of the ATS because they believed it to be the best driving 3-series ever. What resulted was the Alpha chassis and a lighter more agile car than its competition that has been widely lauded by car reviewers. Some reviews I watched even called Cadillac the new ultimate driving machine. Go watch some videos on comparisons between the ATS and the 3-series, educate yourself and you will be surprised. I was. :)

What is the difference between the CTS and what you have in the ATS?

The CTS is built on the same platform but it's a bigger car so the handling isn't quite as sharp. But they both come with the same drivetrains except the ATS is available with a 6spd manual transmission. There is a higher performance version of the ATS called the ATS-V, which has a twin turbo 3.6L V6 available with an 8spd auto or 6spd manual, it competes with the M3/M4, S4, etc. And there is a higher performance version of the CTS called the CTS Vsport, which has a twin turbo 3.6L V6 that is detuned a little from the ATS-V's motor, sadly it only came in auto. But its a great performer and competes with similar models from the Germans like 550i, etc. Redline Reviews did a good one on it. Above the Vsport is the CTS-V, which is just a monster with a 6.2L supercharged V8 that makes 640hp, also only auto. That competes with M5, etc.

Not sure if that is what you wanted to know, but there ya go lol.
