Just the way it is, not many buyers for quirky modded cars like this..
People generally want an Insight G1 for the frugality and unique design/tech etc not for blasting into the sunset.
Good luck though.
I never expected it to sell fast at all, i remember watching a LHT Ksight linger for sale for months on here. I know most owners are frugal, but everyone loves speed.
racecars are addictive, and this is an excellent addition to any insight collection or better alternative to a sports car.
The greatest thing about the swap is it's reliability. compared to the touchy programming and battery management issues that come up with stock insights, this car is always ready to go.
unlike a stock IMA insight, theres never a need to worry about storing it until its ready to rip loose upon the roads.
and truthfully is far less stressful to drive than a stock insight, never in danger of being run off the road by an truck or dinosaur-like suv, the speed is always on tap to briskly and easily escape harm's way; and there are far more creature comforts, like the 10" sub, USB drive on the head unit, bluetooth, and seat heaters when its chilly (it also takes far less time to heat up on a winter's day).
compared to any stock insight, this car makes a normal one look quirky.

Honestly i cant say i ever really truly enjoyed a stock insight until i started modding them, the seat was always my first mod. cars are never a one size fits all. there is someone out there that needs this, it just needs more exposure to find them. I find alot of ppl judge the book by its cover too soon, though.

Seems like you have the right attitude about the sale. A swapped insight is a limited market item and you seem ready to wait. I'd love to own one as a second car, but I have to have at least one car with back seats due to children...

thanks for chiming in, Samwichse, I am pretty comfortable waiting for the right buyer. Until then, I do need to get out and take the car to shows, enjoy it, and get the word out there!!
If I absolutely need it to go, I will most likely list it on Bring-a-Trailer auctions, there are plenty of rare and swapped cars that come through there daily.
If the car hits the auction, I will be sure to let the forums know.

I may end up listing my other car as well; my dailydriver k24 swapped ksight, which is a beat test-mule, but aggressively fast (dangerously fast) and for a advanced driver.
I have alot going on, even though im not working on any projects which is strange for me, not to be building something constantly...
so im just taking the sale very slowly and letting it run it's course, it does get better reaction in person than in pictures online.

Anyone local to Ohio, let me know some shows u would like to see it at!
Just for Kicks, Ill post a few pix of the k24 daily with it aka the "doubleDragons" together... at one time they were twins...

Default final bump, and Final buy it now price of $13k OBO

BUMP once more back to the top
Not sure if already posted this but car is currently priced at its lowest buy it now price
$13k Or Best Offer

Ive been taking it to Shows and enjoying the reactions of ppl seeing it,
its still blowing minds! Anytime I revved it at Superfly, kids were like "WTF is in that thing?!?" LOL one kid argued with his buddy that could not have been the car making those sounds because his eyes only saw the "Insight Hybrid" badges on the back their passionate excitement makes the build so worth it!

So the car will stay at this price, I will soon give the car an Oil Change with Motul 300V 0W20 Ester Core racing oil and Change the Trans Oil with Motul as well. Then Ill Detail the interior and Polish the paint before Ceramic Coating exterior, parts of the interior panels, Brake calipers, valve cover, and some parts of the engine bay.
I will be using Avalon King Armor Shield IX Ceramic Coating
after that, I will still take it to a few shows but it will officially hit Bring a Trailer Auctions.
So be ready to place ur bids, U could get it for a great price!!

and here are a few more recent pix of the car just being clean and reliable

Exclamation UPDATE!! Car goes Live on Ebay Auction June 21st 2019!!!

Big news for everyone that has been wanting this car, or just angry at the price
I just Listed the Car for Auction on Ebay.com last night

It is scheduled to go live at June 21st 2019 @7am!!!
the bidding starts at $4k and the reserve is set around half the original asking price at $9k but it can be bought promptly for $11k which was my lowest take on it.


The paint has been fully Touched up with Honda OEM Silverstone Metallic touch up paint and Polished after curing for 2days. last Friday, Avalon King Armor Shield IX Ceramic Coating was applied as well.The car looks immaculate and has had a Revision to the front Springs using D2 EP3 coilover coil springs, cut to maintain the same 1inch lowering height as before. suspension is now the as good as it gets!!
and the Engine recieved a fresh Oil change with Motul 0w20 Chrono 300v oil and trans got torco friction modifier added to ease the synchros. The K&N short ram air filter was also cleaned and Recharged with K&N oil.

count down the days, i will post on the ebay for sale side of the forums when it goes livebut for now, the item number is 254268592510 (its not active until the auction goes live)
save it for when it hits auction!
