Yesterday I pulled up behind a Gen3 Lunar silver Insight. I am sure it was an LX because the right side mirror did not have the lane watch camera. I believe this is only the fourth one I've seen since my EX purchase in May of 2019.

Saw one in Boston... Gen2 though... Every time I think I see one it's a freakin' Accord. I like to feel unique though :)

I’ve been looking for another Insight since I got one, but I have had a hard time finding one near me. Surprising since all the other cars I’ve had, I start to see them all the time.

I wouldn’t honk to get their attention though. Not sure that Insights have a cult following outside of this forum.

That happened to me a lot when I first started looking for other Insights on the road. As you spot more Insights you will be able to differentiate from the Accord a lot easier. You shouldn't have trouble finding Insights in Boston. I don't drive much and I've seen about 2-3 per month last year in Boston. ;)

Yep, this is the first car I've owned where not many people own the same car as me. I actually love it since I find it fun to seek out another Insight and since Honda doesn't advertise this car people think it's some sort of next gen Civic.

In theory, the Insight sells ~8% of what the Civic sells... so one should hope to see 1 Insight for every 12 Civics seen...?

Insight ownership could be heavily concentrated in a few areas which can affect your chance of seeing one.

Saw a white touring Insight coming down the street while I was waiting to make a left turn earlier today.

Caught a glimpse of what I thought was another Insight in the area last week. Couldn't confirm as it was in opposing traffic and I caught it in my side mirror last second. Well, today I finally confirmed my first gen3 Insight sighting! And I got to park next to it! Too bad the owner of this Modern Steel EX/LX wasn't nearby to chat up. Still pretty excited I'm not the only Insight on Holloman AFB! Also, it's really hard to keep these beauties clean in NM with all the rain/snow/mud/dust we've got the past week, please excuse the both of us.

Saw a Crystal Black Pearl Touring Insight as I was leaving Costco, today. Also on the way back home I noticed my local Honda dealership sold the 2020 Modern Steel EX they got in last month. They replaced it with a Crystal Black Insight in the same spot. :)

I saw my first Honda Insight today as I was leaving a mall. I just happened to have my iPhone on and near by to get a picture of the Insight before the light changed. This is the one time I was glad it was a long light.

Saw a white Insight as I drove past the Honda dealer 2 months ago. Saw it again today parked near a store.
Lots of times I think I see an Insight, but it turns out that its a new Civic.

Flew to LA last month. Saw lots and lots of new Civics, but only one Insight :)

Spotted this Crystal Black Insight in my rear view mirror at a traffic light as it pulled up in the next lane on Tuesday.
I saw a Crystal Black Insight (LX/EX) earlier this week as well. We pulled alongside each other at a stop light, but played it cool... as though seeing another Insight was a common thing.

The other Insight didn't get a chance to pull up alongside me due to another car being there already. :sad:

In December I went the entire month without seeing a single 3rd gen insight. I do see 2nd gens daily. I will see a couple 1st gens each month.

I saw 1 white LX today. I saw a new Silver 2020 in San Diego last weekend (is that a new color?) In total I've seen about 5-6 this week. Which is more than typical, but the numbers are slowly increasing. I saw 2 1st gen NSX and 1 2nd gen NSX last week for comparison.

As of Jan. 31 2020, Honda has sold 37,629 3rd gen Honda Insights (1.5 years). The Civic on a good month like August 2019 can sell 34,808 units. So our Insights are still pretty rare on the roads. I've never seen a 1st gen Insight but I do see 2nd gen Insights sometimes. I'm still averaging 2 to 3 3rd gen Insights seen per month. The only new color for the 2020 Insight is the White Platinum Pearl which replaced the White Orchid Pearl from the 2019.

Lunar Silver has been around since launch, and several of us own it (and think it's better than WOP). :) It's the color Honda chose to highlight in the prototype marketing/launch.
