Hello guys, I'm new in this community. I'm planning to get this Insight maybe next week, I'm from Ireland (Dublin). I need some advice if this is worth buying, and what should I check before buying? Is it possible to replace the head unit because it is Japanese.

ZE2 Insight already has Rota Wheels and Mugen Kit, 12 Months free roadside assistance, 6 Month Warranty.

Year: 2009
Price: €5,950
Mileage: 147,263 Kms / 91,505 Miles

Seems a little steep for 10 years old but the body kit and rims command a premium i suppose ... so long as the running gear is in good order its not a bad deal ... give it a good test drive and pour over the maintenance records if available ... it does look nice even as I'm not a fan of ostentatious wings

Does look like a very well kept car. How's the interior? Do kind of agree with the "ostentatious wing" comment. The rest looks great right down to the wheels! Do let us know if you purchase this Insight.

Still amazing i love it so much, very clean, engine is smooth, and the floor matting is legit Mugen also the body kit. Since the "ostentatious wing" is one with the package, I leave it as is, maybe If I remove it it will leave some mark on the trunk.

Super clean! Inside and out. Excellent find. Wing detachment would probably leave marks or holes of some sort on the hatch. Keeping it on is a good idea.

Yes, thank you so much. It is a set in Mugen Body Kit. This is the rear picture.



Here is the old commercial video of the Mugen Body Kit.

Please click "quick links" above and then "edit details" to add a location to your avatar. It is traditional and it helps all involved particularly youself.

I think the car is a very nice example and the Mugen accessories add appeal. The wing might be a bit much, and is really nonfunctional at modest speeds, but I would only remove it if it can be done easily and without marks.

Congratulations on you new acquisition.:)

Yes, good guy he want us to leave the car in the garage, since I don't have a full license yet. Until now it is still parked there :) I just bought it ASAP because of the setup :) its really rare to see here in Ireland that has full Mugen Kit also the inside.

We tried to quote it first for 4k since I am a learner first time driver, then we tried another insurance it goes down for 3.6k, then If I finish my 10 lessons of EDT I can get 20% of the insurance, as of now im in 3/12 EDT lessons.

If I only process first my International license, It's to late I am already here in Ireland, I could have drive this car out of the dealership hehehehe.
