I just saw a underhood photo of a green 2000 Insight in the October 13 issue of The Tampa Tribune newspaper and I noticed that the 2000 model had a black cover that surrounds the engine bay. I knew something looked like it was missing on my 2003 CVT Insight, but I couldn't remember just exactly what until I saw the photo. :-/ Did Honda do away with the black surround for a reason on the later model years or is my car just simply missing the black plastic surround/cover?

I believe they used the Honda Insight concept car pics. As far as I know the cover never made it to any of the production cars.

That's interesting! I test drove the Insight at a local dealership when it first appeared in the U.S. back in 2000 and I vaguely recall the car having that cover, but maybe I'm just imagining things.
