So we have moved from 2:45 to 3:00...... I think I am closer to 9p :(

Mine was within 20 minutes of the email- still no dash open.

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.
I'm in OC, too, and also with Connell. Far from checking on a whim, I'm sitting here refreshing my screen repeatedly, waiting for something to change. As I mentioned above, Mark called me last evening after seeing me on his page. Maybe I should just take off for a while and check back when I feel the whim. :lol:

I have a 4/20 reservation date and responded around 3 pm, but my account got FUBAR because of the AMEX card problem, like evnow's did. Actually, I'm lucky I have a 4/20 reservation date because it took them like a week to get my account unlocked.

I'm happy with Connell, too. Mark was on the ball to call me last evening.

As for an OC electrician, I have the name of an honest independent guy, family business, licensed electrician who I gave me a very fair estimate of the work at my house a few weeks ago. I'd recommend at least giving him a shot at your group idea.

The company is Jason Wakefield Electric. Phone: 714-883-5064. Tell him you heard about him from someone on the Nissan Leaf forum.

I'm probably going to go with AV because their quote works well for me.

My dash just opened. I put in a RAQ with an area dealer and have spoken to them on the phone. I'm now waiting for quote to come back. It seems to be going pretty good so far. Will keep everyone posted.

I placed my order today and received confirmation. Hopefully I will be able to take possession before the end of the year.

Thanks, I'm in Santa Clarita, CA. I made my reservation on 4/20, I can't remember the time because I was having problems opening the reservation button, it wasn't actually there on a few computers (mac and PC), I had to actually use my Motorola droid to see it and press it, of course it was only after I did a live chat with Nissan to try and solve the problem. I'm guessing it was before 3pm.
By QC I assume you mean quick charge, yes I ordered it.

FYI for people that are checking their e-mail and not their dash boards, I checked my dash board at 10:58am and it was ready to request a quote, I didn't get the you can now request a quote e-mail from Nissan until 12:33pm

I was surprised by how many dealers were either non-responsive or unwilling to deal given the highly competitive market here in the LA/OC area. I really wanted to go with my closest dealers but neither would get firm on price, let alone commit to anything in writing.

I ended up going with Connell. Mark at Connell was straightforward and responsive out of the gate. He and his team (Elise & Wade) were a pleasure to deal with.

They opened at 10:30AM today, about the same time as the Aug. 31. Again, it opened before people received the ordering email.
So leaffan, you seem to have the inside info. It's 3:20 pm PST. Are we "done" for today? Can I go start some serious drinking and save some energy for tomorrow's grind?

I went through Fontana just like you, I offered Valencia Nissan the deal but the General Manager just wanted to keep calling me! I just wanted a straight forward yes or no answer without the negotiating which is why I'm sure he wanted to call me. Fontana is going to deliver it on a flat bed for free and I can sign the paper work at home, that coupled with the $1,000 off sealed the deal for me!

BTW I asked you what color you are getting in another post, then you replied to this one, weird. So what color are you getting, hopefully not white :)
