Default Wheel covers

I just saw a picture of your car and loved the wheel covers. Where did you get those and do they fit the stock wheel?

Thanks, Mark.

Thanks. They look like they could help aero around the wheel wells on the front.

They probably do a little? THe Insight wheels were designed with aerodynamics in mind though.

Do you know which ones? My rims are a little rough and could use something like this. The ones I have found specify steel wheels and are steel themselves.

Wow, those are expensive. I also dislike the fact you have to drill and tap the wheel

Thanks for posting that.

Thanks for this, I can't believe I have had my car for two years and didn't know the seats recline. Every time I wanted to do it I thought it was dumb to not have this feature and it was there the whole time just on the wrong side.

I hate to bring back an old thread, but my back is killing me lately after driving my Insight a lot for my job. I've been contemplating installing S2000 seats, or even a set of Bride, or Recaros, but the whole point of owning this car is to save money, and spending it on seats seems counter productive. I like the idea of spending $30 on foam, and improving the comfort. Unfortunately none of the pics are working any longer. Does anyone still have these pics on a hard drive or something? I can host them on my website, to help others with this problem. My lower back would really appreciate it if you guys can help in anyway.

My seats aren't the best either. Appreciate that foam rebuilding link as well.
