2000 Honda Insight
Best Trip: 83.1mpg
over 100+ miles
I recently picked up an Insight for $3100, I received a bunch of extras: two filters, 2 brand new Potenza RE92's, a full size spare, Kicker hidden subwoofer, aftermarket head unit and speakers, a cruise control system, and a grid charger.
The first owner installed a full regen button.
For mods, I'll inflate the tires quite a bit, possibly lower the ride height, delete the rear wiper and antenna, rig up a full assist mode, and some other stuff as time goes on. This is going to be an awesome adventure!
Here she is:
For now, the Insight is safe from extreme modification, however in the future I would love to throw in a 1.8 liter turbo engine from a Volkswagen/Audi and make it a mid engined RWD Insight. I'm thinking about 250 horsepower at 1800 pounds. A weight to power ratio of 7.2 would put this car right at the level of a 2017 Corvette Stingray. While being extremely fast, the car would also get amazing economy on the road, definitely not as good as the Insight with original engine/motor though. It would be worth it to me to have a car that is extremely fun to drive, gets good gas mileage and is a sleeper. Only time will tell which way I go with this car.
