If I go down there this weekend to look at it and pass on it, I'll give you guys a quick run-down of my findingsI’m interested in the Insight, and I have a couple of questions. If I come to see it I’ll be driving a couple of hours since I live in Lakeland, so I want to get a little info up front.
Biggest question is, what does the green button on the dash do? Seeing how there’s a relay up on the battery housing in the engine compartment, is that a kill switch? He obviously hit that switch a lot seeing how dirty the top of the coin compartment is, kind of worries me not knowing what it is. Or is it just a clutch override switch?
Is the LCD display going bad where it reads the rpms?
Do you have any pics of the grid charger and the harness?
Are the aero panels underneath in good shape? Are the front panels still on it, or did they get tossed?
Do all the doors and hatch open?
When the plugs were changed did they use OEM indexed plugs?
Does the sunroof have any leaks?
Also, what is the real deal with that “vented” hood? I’m an Insight owner already, I have a lot of buddies that are Insight owners, my kid is an Insight owner, and I have never seen or heard of that kind of mod or seen it mentioned in any forums. It looks more like the guy had something there at one time and then slapped the vent on there when he removed it
Agree on the paint. Looks very good on the car. Though I'd put on airs and call it "burgundy" color.That maroon color is making my ridiculously wet. Along with those shaved door handles Mmmm..... I think I'll stop now.
Wow, the car looks amazing in that color. The hood vent might "help" to reduce underhood temps if that were ever a concern on an Insight, lol. At first glance I actually thought the hood vent was a solar panel though, might not be a bad place for one to tenderize the 12V battery. And oh man, that sunroof! That car has a couple options that should have been available from the factory.You'll probably see me in that thing in a week or two unless it's a p.o.s.
I might sell Turtle outright, or see if they'd take it in trade if I decide to get that one
Man I would, but my kid already called dibs on Turtle, and the only things he might not want on it are a couple of the many, many mods. He ripped the mods right off the Festiva back in the day when he got it from me.
His twin brother already has an Insight, too. We picked up a couple weekends ago in Ft Lauderdale! This will be three of them in the family if I get this one
