Hi All,

I couldn't be happier right now!!! I just sealed the deal on my new 2005 insight from Lynnwood Honda in Edmunds, WA. Its a red 5 speed with AC, and I paid $20,165 - about $900 below MSRP. :D

FYI there are at least 2 other 2005's in the Seattle area. One at Bellevue Honda and the other at Hinshaws Honda.

I live in Reno, and have to go all the way to Seattle to get it, but to me its worth it since there are no new insights in central California or Nevada.

I really appreciate all your helpfull tips and comments, and hope to be an active member of the forum.

What's the first thing I should do when I climb inside? (can you tell I'm excited) :D

Duck your head! :D

Then enjoy!

Congradulations, you now own a rare 2005 model of a really cool car, built in the same factory as the aluminum bodied NSX.

P.S. There's lots of headroom once you are in, enough for a helmet if you autocross like some here. :wink:

Check and set the tire pressure. The dealer probably "adjusted" them to non-hybrid 30psi spec. Consider 50 psi, but at least max out the tire to the sidewall limit of 44psi.

Don't expect hyper MPG until the engine (and you) are fully "broken in". It takes time for both. :)

Welcome to the club. ;)

HTH! :)

Foxfire don't make the mistake that a lot of people make when they buy a new car from a dealer a long way from home. Do not stay a the same engine speed for prolonged periods of time. Vary your MPH at much as you can within reason and don't go real fast either. A internal cumbustion engine to be broken in properly needs to be cycled as far as RPM's go. Remenber you can vary the engine speed and keep the same MPH by using 4th gear if needed.
