Default Insight Technical Videos

Admin note: stickied!

I came across another 35minute Honda Insight Video on e-bay UK recently, it was made by Honda Tech for the release of the Insight in the UK in 2000.

It is well made, and gives a detailed description of a 5 speed manual US Insight with a British narrator. It has a clear focus on the technical advances that went into making our cars so special. It was intended for UK/US technicians by the look of it, so goes into some depth about the car and safety especially with the IMA system. It has some very nice cutaway illustrations of Insight features and is quite detailed.

I think it's well worth a look. Especially for the Techies amongst us.

High Quality Xvid Avi 100mb here.

Or for my earlier shorter 15 minute uploaded UK Insight dealer video see below.

Enjoy and comments welcome. Both video's cover different ground and make a great introduction to new/prospective Insight owners.

Regards

Peter


Follow up!

OK, I have uploaded both UK Insight videos to my personal webspace so download should be easy now.

Please use the links above first, it saves my bandwidth, if you have problems with 'Rapidshare' then use these two links below.

http://www.solarvan.co.uk/insight/InsightTechVideo.avi
100mb 35min xvid avi

http://www.solarvan.co.uk/insight/InsightSalesVideo.avi
100mb 15min xvid avi

If you need a player for these files then go here
http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

Enjoy.

And a further follow up!

These videos are now available on Google Videos as streaming files so members can see them directly without downloading the whole file before they begin. This also so helps my bandwidth so please use these links in preference to the rapidshare or my personal webspace ones above. Thanks.

Default Re: A great Insight Technical video.

great video(the 1st one)

they missed or made a slight error on a couple things that i noticed(i think partly because its older or possibly not talking about the US version)

-they missed the econ mode on the climate control
-the beeper when the door opens works whenever the key is in the ignition, not just when the car is in autostop

Great video...they forgot to mention that the IMA also pulses to balance the crank vibration.

Is it possible to get this video via another method besides RapidShare? I've tried 6 times to download both videos and each one has failed (most failing at around 40%, one went to 99% and then timed out). RapidShare sucks. Each attempt means waiting another half an hour before I am "authorized" to get another "download ticket", typing in that damn CAPTCHA, and then chancing the 50% possibility that the download won't even get past 5%.

Is there anyone who can mirror it? Or send it to me via another method?

Thank you for reposting the videos. I was finally able to get the first one via RapidShare using Firefox and a different IP address. The 2nd one I was forced to download from your webspace.

I must say that they were completely worth the hassle. Excellent material for anyone having to make a presentation on the Insight, or for playback during car shows.

Great videos, thanks!

They stated that the CD is 0.28 , I thought it was 0.25.

For the new members and Insight MK1 owners on here I strongly recommend watching these two videos. The technical video is well done and explains some of the finer points of the car and some things which generate lots of questions on here. Enjoy
