    hello all,
    I just registered and have been waiting to order the awesome new ATS-V. I was going for a BMW "6" series but the caddie is more in line with my C7. It will be like having GM cousins. I read here someone has placed an order already. Is it possible to go to any Cadillac dealer and place an order? GM has not made a " build your own" web page yet.
    In 2013 all you could do was give a deposit on a Stingray but it wasn't an order until about the same time as the web page let you build it. Then you would get the dealer submit an order and then you would get a "order number. With that one could track where it was in process.
    Is there an actual production start date? I did not see a code from the other thread for manual or auto trans. I wonder which will be the up charge. With my C5 I paid $1500 for stick and now the C7 you pay extra for the auto.
    Thanks and I'm glad this Forum was started as we can help each other with info on this great new vehicle.

    Ordering is open at any Cadillac dealer. The 8 speed auto is the optional transmission, $2000. I think the website ordering opens in April.

    That is about the best road Pcola. Just repaved some of it. We run the road behind the airport for a few curves also. Are from the area?
    I moved here 8 years ago and love it. I used it fly into here when I was in the USAF and knew than this was to be my final stop.

    I am sure they will start production early April. They have plenty of orders placed but none have a TPW yet. Dont order the Vector Blue or yo wont see that thing for a long time!

    Mine is in 3000 status which means accepted for production control. I was told April for the build timeframe also.

    Ordered sedan 3 - 4 weeks ago and the order has a 3000 status. Ordered from Jay Lane at Sewell.

    Went to the World Challenge race at COTA and rode in the ATS V sedan on a fun run. Suspension is stupid good. Seats are great. It was an automatic (driver left it in auto) and the overall setting was race and something (i couldn't hear the last part) upshifts and downshifts was very strong and precise. Acceleration was good although the amount of speed carried through the corners made it hard to get a fell for straight line performance. i would guess the horsepower numbers are a bit conservative. We ran down the Audis in front of us even though we waited in the pits an extra 10 seconds before unleashing the beast.

    all stock.

    Base alignment
    Tires were not shaved, looked brand new.

    One additional thing that impressed me about the car was that after our run (the driver held nothing back) there wasn't that strong fluid odor. Normally stock cars that are pushed hard for 4 to 5 minutes have that "hot fluid" odor this car had none.

    my only wish was that it had the cinch feature for the seat belts like a corvette

    Just stopped at the Cadillac dealer to inquire about the ATS-V.
    Not a first good impression..
    First salesperson did not know anything about the car.
    Next sales manager said that he is taking deposits on the car.
    He did not know the price or production date.
    I asked him when he expects first cars in, as I would like a test drive one before buying.
    He said that because car will be a limited addition there will be no cars available to test.
    He also said that the dealer policy is not to give a test drives on such an expensive cars as after no customer would buy one with additional millage.
    To that I told him that I would never buy a car without first buying one especially expensive one as ATS-V.
    Than I walked out of the dealer.
    I was not impressed with the attitude of the sales manager and I will be checking other dealers in Montreal area.

    Sorry to hear that! I do however understand not letting people test drive these cars, as everyone would love a quick "Joyride". I hope you went to a standalone Cadillac dealer and not one sharing a lot with GMC or Chevrolet??

    Unfortunately here in Montreal we don't have a dealer that only sells Cadillacs.
    I told the sales manager that i'm a serious buyer and that I presently own CTS-V.
    He gave me an impression that he simply didn't care.
    May be that is why the sales of CTS and ATS cars are down.

    I would be more than happy to assist anyone with the purchase or lease of a new ATS-V. We have an awesome selection of retail orders (unspoken for) and they have all been accepted by production control. If none of the incoming units are of interest, I would be happy to submit an order for you.

    We are not going to be charging a "market adjustment" for any of our vehicles as that is not the right way to do business and its also against our company policy. I can work with any out of state buyers and I have a great relationship with several shipping companies so I can facilitate that as well.

    I've been a part of the V Series community for a long time and have been posting on cts-vowners.com for several years. That being said, I'm looking forward to being a large supporter of this site and please contact me directly at the email address or phone number below if I can be of service!

    Thank you,
    Jay
