Admin note: stickied!

I came across another 35minute Honda Insight Video on e-bay UK recently, it was made by Honda Tech for the release of the Insight in the UK in 2000.

It is well made, and gives a detailed description of a 5 speed manual US Insight with a British narrator. It has a clear focus on the technical advances that went into making our cars so special. It was intended for UK/US technicians by the look of it, so goes into some depth about the car and safety especially with the IMA system. It has some very nice cutaway illustrations of Insight features and is quite detailed. :D

I think it's well worth a look. Especially for the Techies amongst us.

High Quality Xvid Avi 100mb here.

Or for my earlier shorter 15 minute uploaded UK Insight dealer video see below.

Enjoy and comments welcome. Both video's cover different ground and make a great introduction to new/prospective Insight owners.

Re: A great Insight Technical video.

great video(the 1st one)

they missed or made a slight error on a couple things that i noticed(i think partly because its older or possibly not talking about the US version)

-they missed the econ mode on the climate control
-the beeper when the door opens works whenever the key is in the ignition, not just when the car is in autostop

Is it possible to get this video via another method besides RapidShare? I've tried 6 times to download both videos and each one has failed (most failing at around 40%, one went to 99% and then timed out). RapidShare sucks. Each attempt means waiting another half an hour before I am "authorized" to get another "download ticket", typing in that damn CAPTCHA, and then chancing the 50% possibility that the download won't even get past 5%.

Is there anyone who can mirror it? Or send it to me via another method?

Thank you for reposting the videos. I was finally able to get the first one via RapidShare using Firefox and a different IP address. The 2nd one I was forced to download from your webspace.

I must say that they were completely worth the hassle. Excellent material for anyone having to make a presentation on the Insight, or for playback during car shows.

For the new members and Insight MK1 owners on here I strongly recommend watching these two videos. The technical video is well done and explains some of the finer points of the car and some things which generate lots of questions on here. Enjoy

Gen 1 CVT UK Rally Car

Just in case you haven't seen these.. Almost 9 years ago now..

We gave it a Lithium 15Ah 180V pack, +30% Current Hack IIRC, and bespoke IMAC&C that worked with MIMA.




Between stages it just sat ticking over in the service area charging up at about 10-15 amps which is the most you can squeeze out of tickover regen IIRC without the car stalling.
