I think they mean the "Order your Nissan Leaf" tab.

I got to order today!!!

I didn't get an email but on a whim I checked my Nissan profile and the spot which says I can get a quote from the dealer was suddenly functional, so I called my preferred dealer Connell Nissan in Costa Mesa and completed my order very smoothly.

I put my reservation in 4/20 at about 3 pm CA time.

I highly recommend Connell; they called me about 8 minutes after I submitted the request for the quote and they were very helpful and offered a good price, 1000 below MSRP. Very straightforward transaction, no monkey business.

Many thanks to MWalsh who graciously shared the details of his order with me and helped me decide to waive the "folding in" of the EVSE home charging equipment into the lease.

Aerovironment is such a rip-off that was a no-brainer, but I wasn't sure how that would come up in the purchase process.

I'll like to start a thread of people interested in getting the EVSE home charger installed in the Orange County area. Maybe an astute electrician could help us as a group and give us a good deal and bypass the whole Aerovironment scam.

drlesley, I'd be interested in a thread about people who are bypassing the AV assessment and what they're gonna do. I'm not installing a charger at home (I live in an apt. and it's not possible), gonna rely on what's out there publicly. What's everyone else's plans?

I'm not 100% opposed to AV, even though their install price is too high even with the 3 year in-home warranty, but I'd be up for hearing about local alternatives.
