Since I would like my install to be specific to the 2011 and 2012, focusing on the coolant heat loop.
If there is an "add a coolant heater to a 2011-2012 leaf" post I was unable to find it. My bad.
Remember I'm new, so I'm not going to remember a post from a few years ago like the old timers.
I have already determined that for me to upgrade to a 2013 or newer leaf would cost at least $3,000.
Because there are few to no leafs for sale here, the ones that are for sale almost always have battery degradation so I would have to have one shipped in from a cooler climate, like i did with my 2011, then my resale market here for the leaf sucks.
And I believe that this mod will be superior to the newer heat pump cars, you know, great hest with almost 0 loss in range.
So I got no problem spending $700 to $800 on a heater.
