I think the ATS was too small inside when I tried to sit in it. It's really hard to tell the difference between a black ATS and a black CTS on the road.
Oh yea, now I remember what sealed the deal for me not going to look at the car. 6 Cogs for the auto. Needs more. I read and article that said when GM was in bankruptcy court they halted engineering on the new 8 speed transmission which is still a couple years off. BMW never halted engineering, and never will, period.
