Didn't see a post where we can show off our cars. I just washed mine and thought I kick it off.
I don't have wheel and rim shine right now but I think it still looks good. I dipped my tires let me know what you think.
Aegean Blue was my 2nd color choice while shopping the Insight. You can attract a lot of attention during the day and look stealthy at night from the pictures I have seen. I wasn't able to see the color in person since dealership showrooms didn't stock it so chose Orchid White. Probably explains why I still haven't seen one on the road even though I have seen almost every other color in Boston. I'm looking forward to warmer weather this week and can give my car a thorough cleaning especially on the door jams.

Show off your car con't.
I was at the port of Canaveral today awaiting the arrival of Space X capsule and while there , big crowds, a couple in a grey Lexus pulled up near my Aegean blue Honda and I was about 10 ft away and I heard him tell his partner , Boy that is the prettiest Blue I ever seen. I wish I had that on my new Lexus. I'v gotten more compliments on this color car than any other car color I ever had.

The blue is pretty. A co-worker at work has that color on a Civic. That would be my third choice in the lineup.

Once weather improves, I will break out the Canon to take some better pictures. I'll re-post then. All I have are some quick iPhone pics for now. Here is my "Pearl"...

Phil, I see you have an EX with fog lights. How involved was the upgrade? Did you do it yourself? How much additional light do they throw? Worth it?

Hey Don (you hypermiler you :D ), Very much worth it IMO. I love the extra light these give to the sides. It's like a seamless extension of the low beams that is just as bright beyond the normal low beam spread. Perfect for spotting deer off the roadway.

These were factory fog lights ordered at the time of sale. The lights are around $500, and with install labor came up to $817. A bit expensive, but I love how well they augment the light, and I wanted them to be covered under warranty. Verdier has an excellent video showing the light spread with them on and off. Great add for the EX.

Aegean blue was also my second choice. Here are photos of my Modern Steel Metallic three days after purchase. I have since applied Klasse "all in one" and then the Klasse "sealant" (see my post here), and have been very happy with the results. Will be applying my "spring" coatings later this month when it warms up more.

Photos didn't upload for some reason. Trying again....

Looking @Verdier youtube video, it looks like the fog lights, can make avoiding potholes at night easier.

I watched it again. He didn't use a wide angle lens, so it's not showing how wide they actually spread. It's even better in person. You will like them. Do you know anyone locally that can demo them in the dark?
Re in-dark demo... there's always the option of test driving a Touring at night, from a dealer.

Maybe because most of the posted pictures are of white Insights (contrast)... but I've noticed that the amount of "gap" varies among the different pictured cars especially in the door, hood, and trunk areas. It makes me want to adjust all the stops in these areas, because the uneven gaps don't look right.

Nothing to fancy, just 15% ceramic tint all around and a small strip on the windshield
When I first clicked on your picture, I was wondering why are the airbags deployed, then I realized it's probably a sun shade. :rolleyes:

This is my favorite part of my car to "show off." This was the result of a trip from my dentist's office to work this morning (Flemington, NJ -> Princeton, NJ). I can't wait for warmer weather!
