Hey there, got mine (a 2000 Insight with 23,000 KM) for $17,700 CDN ($11,700 USD). It's a silver 5spd with A/C, purchased in Ontario, Canada, and they're shipping it to Vancouver, BC. I missed the very last new, unregistered 2000 model by a couple weeks. It was a red 5spd with A/C, sold in Edmonton, AB for $19,000 CDN ($12,600 USD).
It sounds like your sale price is pretty close to list. Search online, and don't be afraid to buy one out-of-state. CA has a high demand and short supply. I believe there was one dealer in Lousianna selling then for $5000 under list; shipping should be under $1000...

What should a person pay for a new Insight? 5-speed with air. A $1,000 discount is not very good anymore is it?

Is a 2003 Isight worth buying? What should the price be? It seems as the new 2004 Prius will elcipse the Honda Hybreds. Honda salesmen don't even carry the insight at lagre dealerships. The Insight and this board appear to be dead.

I live in Canada and recently bought a 2004 Navy Blue Honda Insight CVT at a Seattle area dealer for about list price. I must be the only guy in the world still interested in the Insight or CVT dealer. Essentially the strong message I got from Western Canadian dealers is we don't have any, we haven't had any, we aren't getting any and we don't want to get any, and if you get one we done't want to work on it!!!! For those Canadians considering buying one in the USA and bringing it home, DON"T DO IT no matter how good the price. American Honda considers these "American destination cars as grey market cars" and refuses to support them in Canada. They won't easily give you the paperwork you need to register them and don't want to honor their warranties north of the 49th...
I have really enjoyed driving my Insight from Seattle to Edmonton but now it sits in my driveway as $27,000 Canadian worth of used Honda Insight parts inventory until I can get American Honda Motors to give me the required documents. Got ???? contact Rocky at tya2agt.net
