I'm looking to by a used Insight, but I haven't seen one close up yet.

I'm wondering if there are any UK owners in the midlands area who might help me out by showing me theirs!

UK owners where are you ?

Hi Stoner,
I live in the East Anglia region near Ely if you want to have a look or ring on 01353 860692.
I suppose your biggest problem will be finding one to buy as they are scarce now that Hybrids are getting a lot of publicity.
In this weeks Autocar mag there is an article, and for the first time a breakdown of yearly registrations for the Insight quoted. Don't remember the individual figures but from 2000 to date there have been a total of 237 registered in the UK.

Thanks, Ely is an option-
My parents live in Suffolk so it would just be a short detour off the A14 when I next pay them a visit...

Finding them for sale is a problem, although once I have seen one close-up and am convinced, I can get one through the used Honda UK dealer network. There have been a few recently but you have to buy before viewing unless you travel. I've also thought about importing.

Hi Stoner

I will shortly have an abundance of Insights (well, three) - I am buying another one - a red automatic for the missus (who has yet to pass her driving test). I intend to sell my silver '99 Japanese import and also the recently acquired Citrus '01 UK Insight. The plan is to keep the red automatic as a joint car until I get an Insight 2 in 2005/6.

I am going to Manchester tomorrow, in the Citrus Insight, I could stop off in Coventry on the way back if you would like (probably around 5pm). PM me your address tonight (quick!) if you want me to stop by.
