My cousin was driving early this morning and followed a black Insight down the A120 all the way to Colchester. He took a cellphone photo of it - its a Y-reg plate and looks super sexy and a touch sinister.

Love to know who's it is.....are they out there? Was black a factory colour or is it a respray?

Fancy a race round Earls Colne airfield? :D

Hi Sulphur Man

I once spotted a black Insight near me in Carshalton - it is a factory colour but I think black was only offered for a year or two. Black Insights have ORANGE seats....

I have actually seen quite a few Insights on the roads in the UK recently. While in a hire car, I overtook a citrus Y reg Insight going west on the M40 last Monday with a woman driving. I was tempted to wind down the window and shout across "check out insight central. net" or something similar but thought better of it!

Out of curiousity, whereabouts is Earls Colne airfield and is it open for public use/hire?

Earls Colne airfield is part airfield, part 'public' road. Basically, its a road, but a derestricted one, which passes through an airfield about 10 miles outside Colchester. Nice and wide and good for a blast, although the gate to it tends to get shut from time to time.

Wow Glad to hear you saw a Black Insight!!!! I wish I could have been there to see it, it would have been something. I have though seen a white Insight in my area.

When I were a lad back in the 70s I used to fly in and out of Earls Colne for maintenance. Lots of changes since then including a Golf Course I believe, but I still travel around inside an Aluminum/Aluminium cocoon made by Honda not Cessna.
