I have just had my car returned from Bristol Honda after having a new IMA pack fitted under warranty.

I'll report back on Monday after I have used the car for the weekend on any changes.

Congrats. That was pretty speedy, considering the wait owners often face across the pond :)

Just compleated the first trip in the Insight with the new pack.

Before the fix the car was struggling to achive 50mpg, now, on it is doing 70mpg, cruising at 80mph on the motorway.

I have also noticed that the charging on regen braking seams more aggresive & there appears to be less background charging going on when cruising at fixed speed.

The SOC indicator is behaving more like it did when I got the car in 2003.

I wounder if they just drop shipped you a new pack from Japan. I was told that the new packs here are made domestically, and obviously they can't make them fast enough with how long we're having to wait. I doubt they would contract with a business to build packs for a car with such limited numbers in the UK.
