Yes it's RWD. Yes it's a manual. Yes it has a turbo. No, it's not your grandaddy's Caddy. Updated 10/9/2020 Gray = retired mods ---------------- Well after a long search for a luxury sport sedan that would tick all the right boxes for the right price, I finally found what I wanted. I flew out to pick it up, then drove 13 hours home. It's a 2014 Cadillac ATS 2.0T RWD Performance with a 6spd manual. White Diamond Pearl on Morello Red. All I've done so far are clear sidemarkers up front, and Vsport floormats inside. Next is the OEM lip kit and some wheels, and an ATS-V trunk spoiler. Don't worry, the Accord is still around.
