Thanks again guys. It is the same car supposedly. I wasn't sure if that cover opened or if it's just a holder and no qc. I'll make sure to check VINS.

Your pic wasn't very clear, so I'm not sure. This is what the CHADEMO port looks like when it's closed:

And this is a blank plate on an S model with no CHADEMO:

Your photo looks less like the blank plate than a closed CHADEMO port, but it's hard to be sure from your photo

That's the pic the dealer sent me. It doesn't have the four screws / bolts around the edges. Are those stickers ever wrong?

Not that I've heard. Ask him to send you a photo with the CHADEMO port open

I'll try but I think my contact left for the evening. Either way this seems like a decent deal to me if the battery is in good health. The qc would be nice but I can charge at work and home and all over my area so it's not a deal breaker.

I noticed kbb says this car should be more. I just kind of assume kbb is horrible at estimating these. If the battery checks out is this deal still good without the qc?

If it's an S with QC then it's a good price, less so for just a regular S. Higher mileage puts off some newbie buyers, but with an EV the battery health is the most important thing ;)

Carfax shows it had a lien on it at some point, just be sure it doesn't still have a lien against it.

I'm not seeing a lien. I only see this:

Title issued or updated
First owner reported
Titled or registered as personal lease vehicle
Loan or lien reported

I see it says loan or lien but not sure what this is saying since it's the same day it was registered as a lease vehicle.

Just remember, the battery is by far your biggest concern. Ask for a Leaf Spy screenshot, as knowledgeable dealers can provide that, then verify the %SOH reported by Leaf Spy against the 25% battery depletion test (trip mileage on 25% charge x 4, look for at least 70 miles total range based on that).
