Thanks. This will be a short-range commuter. In general it will be used for in-city commutes of 15 miles or less round trip, but with occasional highway/city drives of 30 miles or less round trip.
We will keep it in our (uninsulated) garage, which already has a dryer in it. I'm looking for threads with good info on our options for the garage to install a L2 charger. From what I've read, sounds like having a dryer outlet in the garage should spare us the major expense of having wiring run out to the garage.
I like the idea of the Obercharger, but will get some estimates for a second outlet.

Now if you were talking a new Leaf, sure I think the prices left on any remaining 30kw Leafs will drop like a rock once a longer range Leaf comes out but I don't think so much on something like a '15, which IMO the price you posted seems like a pretty good deal. '13S's in my market are darn near $10K but Leaf prices really vary by location.
Thanks for the perspective. Leafs are pretty popular here, so there is a very large CPO selection of lease returns. After selling our current second car (Honda Fit), I'm hoping to be $5-6k out of pocket for the Leaf. It sounds like it may wind up costing a bit more than that.
