I liked how the one guy was raving about Honda while wearing a Isuzu jacket! LOL

I loved that too! Nothing like truth in advertising, eh But I do confess that I sometimes wear Harley-Davidson boots while driving my Insight or riding my Honda motorbike.

Likewise, did you happen to notice that the SoC gauge on the Citrus Yellow Insight was only reading one or two bars while the guy was talking about never having any issues with the IMA system?

Overall, a good video as it shares my opinion about the hybrid technology. I must admit though, that the yellow Gen 1 Civic (in the garage's background) got me excited as I have always loved the design of the original Civics. Currently own a Gen 1 Civic with less than 27K original miles!

Harry Metcalfe is the last guy. Editor of EVO magazine in the UK and has some truly incredible cars but still uses the Insight to run around in and out of London etc.

He has amongst his other cars a Pagani Zonda and his videos are brilliant.

Harry's car is now mine! I'll let you know how I get on with it. First short trip due tonight. Longer one tomorrow.

Still enjoying the Silver one from the ad, even had a friend machine polish it over the weekend, now it looks as good as new again!

Not bad after a good clean.
