Mein Auto: Does it matter?

Again, I have YET to see an ATS around here. Haven't been out of town in a while, but haven't seen one yet. And I will definitely know when I see one.
Give the ATS some time. The 3 series moniker has been around for far longer then Caddie's ATS moniker. A couple years down the line, we'll see it have a very big following, if not bigger(on the internet anyway) if BMW keeps up with the current trend of softening up their cars. It's losing it's core base that helped it get to where it is today - Purists.
