Always good to see a shiny new Insight. I much prefer a dark blue Insight like yours to the old light blue colour. Nice home computer as well!!

Hi WizardReloaded:

___Now that you own it, how do you like it :D

___Anything that you want to change out immediately or is it all you were looking for right off the dealers showroom floor? By your pic's, I see you own the CVT equipped Insight. Was that your first choice?

___Good Luck

Thanks for all the responces.... I went to epcot yesterday and went on GM's Test Track. And in there show room, I saw a concept of there hydrogen Car which was really amazing. The GM Hy-Wire.
Also, if you can handle rollercoasters, You need to go On Mission: Space. It is the most amazing ride I have ever been on, it is not a rollercoaster, it simulates gforce, to take you from take off, to landing on mars. I have never been in space or have ever been in a spaceshuttle, or rocket. But this is the real thing, nothing will ever compare to this ride. The ride is about 10 min long, and you will feel really nautiouse<- spelling) the rest of the day. But Its def. worth it.

Alienware box... only issue is it needs a bunch of cleanup inside, especially with the side viewing window. not to knock your system though, sure it's performance is sweet, and the accessories give a nice flare.

Although I'm really comfortable in the Insight, the Hi-wire would give me the willies. Since you should be stopped when changing drivers, it's probably just as easy to shift seats as to shift wheels and it's probably better for the circulation too. Here take the wheel she said! :lol: I'm an Elecrotech but I wouldn't trust even Honda with totally electronic steering. Not yet anyway. Besides, I seem to recall that GM dazzled us with twist wrist steering 30 years ago. I believe it was Popular Mechanics that tested it on a slalom course back then. Doesn't seem to have caught on around here. :roll:

The steering in the dualtone looks like it could give you a nasty suprise too if you weren't paying attention. I'd love some of those displays in the Insight though. Hmmm.... now don't get me thinking about it, I already have way too much fun with the instantaneous gas guage. :D

Yeh I could see there being problems with the early 1st gen of the HyWire, But its still awesome, you could just drive J-Spec. or you get tired and want your wife/girlfriend to drive, or vice-versa you could just push a button and it would switch. The dualtone - im sorry but that is just too awesome of a car to argue with. ontop of all the displays, and night vision, etc. you get a v6 vtec with 400hp. Noone knows the price on this car, but it would def. be awesome to drive.

I see what your saying about the b-pillar, it would suck to be in the back of an element in an accident w/out that pillar there.
