Default Hello guys I need some advice with this JDM Insight.

Hello guys, I'm new in this community. I'm planning to get this Insight maybe next week, I'm from Ireland (Dublin). I need some advice if this is worth buying, and what should I check before buying? Is it possible to replace the head unit because it is Japanese.

ZE2 Insight already has Rota Wheels and Mugen Kit, 12 Months free roadside assistance, 6 Month Warranty.

Year: 2009
Price: €5,950
Mileage: 147,263 Kms / 91,505 Miles

Hhhhmmmmmm
Seems a little steep for 10 years old but the body kit and rims command a premium i suppose ... so long as the running gear is in good order its not a bad deal ... give it a good test drive and pour over the maintenance records if available ... it does look nice even as I'm not a fan of ostentatious wings

Does look like a very well kept car. How's the interior? Do kind of agree with the "ostentatious wing" comment. The rest looks great right down to the wheels! Do let us know if you purchase this Insight.

Still amazing i love it so much, very clean, engine is smooth, and the floor matting is legit Mugen also the body kit. Since the "ostentatious wing" is one with the package, I leave it as is, maybe If I remove it it will leave some mark on the trunk.

Super clean! Inside and out. Excellent find. Wing detachment would probably leave marks or holes of some sort on the hatch. Keeping it on is a good idea.

Per the other thread, it's you. Pics resize automatically as they should.

Likely any adblocker software you may have installed.
