Modded Cadillac ATS - Hot or Not?

modded Cadillac ATS

D3 Group's current program begins with a styling package comprising a black grille, front bumper add-ons, side skirts with or without "air-foils", deck-lid and roof spoilers, and alloy wheels.

The tuner's engineers have come up with a few tricks to improve the ATS' performance such as a new air intake system, "Street" and "Competition" lowering springs and a coilover system.

Hot, with caveats. From the first photo at an angle, I like it. A dead-on side view, not so much. I think it's the lowered stance, honestly. Something looks asymmetrical...like the wheels are too small for the body. A standard ride height may fix that, or even larger wheels. But overall, it looks fast just sitting parked.

I don't like that type of style, regardless of the car its applied to. I'm not the target audience, so I'm sure my opinion is irrelevant to the car's creators.

Not! I hate it when people slam cars. Spend your money on making better, not just look cooler.

I kinda feel like changing the suspension and getting rid of the magnetic ride control kinda defeats this cars strong points (chassis, suspension and steering).


I like the ATS... but as i get older, i get less and less out of modded stuff. Give me a stock 2.0t with some window tint.
