Default New here.

I am planning to purchase a 2005 insight next week.
How common is the colour white? The 2005 models why no rear wiper?
Japanese import rather than uk model cvt. 5000.

White is very rare in UK..

A CVT import will not be tax free.

I strongly suggest get a grid charger fitted asap after purchase.
The car will have sat for some time (possibly weeks/months) on the boat/waiting to be sold etc.
If you don't get one then you are risking premature battery death due to imbalance..

Good luck.

Default tax

Thank you. However as it is a 2005 model post march 2001 don't think it incurs any tax as done on emissions?

So will it be taxed on a pre 2001 model under 1.4 litre then?
