Ok, so when does yours arrive?

Crass though he may be, he's got a point, which is that there's a big difference between "expressing interest" and actually pulling the trigger.

Seriously, I can't imagine looking at an F30 and an ATS side by side and picking the Caddy. Can you? Really?

Forget driving it (I'm sure I'd be pleasantly surprised how good it is), I just can't get past the styling... it's juvenile and shouty, unrefined... trying to distinguish itself with the overly angular motif, contrived and trying too hard, like they're desperately trying to get it to work, and it still doesn't... they've been trying to get that design language right for a decade now, and it still fails.

(just one professional designer's opinion, let's call it my 3 cents)
