This is a great genuine UK tax free G1 car for someone.
It's my wifes old car, and the first G1 Insight we ever owned and I worked on.

I'm not selling it, and have no connection with the seller.
It had a pampered life with us for ten years until a year or so ago when it was sold on.

It had the rear cross member removed, blasted, bushes replaced and powder coated a while back, which is very useful in our climate.
New IMA battery a few years ago. Matiz rear springs.

I would say it's now worth 4k of anyones money, and with a powder coat wheel refurb £200 (although they look ok in the photos)
and a bit of bodywork it would be an excellent well preserved example..

The high lifetime mpg reflects it was driven with care, and I remember in standard form we managed 116 mpg (uk) for over 300 miles on a run one day.

I know it used to be yours Peter, but you can import one from Japan with half the mileage, 2006 model year, everything working and no body damage for a lot less, which is what I did. Also like mine it can be a CVT which was essential for me. The big plus was also the choice of colours and no corrosion at all, but your old car is tidy, and looks nice

I've just made an offer peter, so let's see !
My main worry is the air con and rear demister. Ideally I'd like to get an original stereo and the wheels recut too.
