Only getting the free BMS update, and then waiting a few months, will provide the possibility for an answer - for which you will also need the LeafSpy Pro app and a compatible OBDII port reader. A reading can't be done immediately after the update, because the BMS is reset when it's done, and has to relearn the actual (?) capacity of the battery. That process takes a while.
Understood but unfortunately since I need to decide by mid next month, it doesn't seem like a good option to keep my current lease given what everyone has said.
I already have negotiated a deal for buying 2019 Leaf S at 25K flat + taxes today late evening with Hayward Nissan and will probably pursue that route. Thank you all very much. This is the 40KW one and rather than leasing seems like buying will probably make much more sense since the least lease per month cost which I am getting quoted including all down payment is around $235 per month.
My current lease is $137 per month with all taxes included and was able to negotiate a $0 down back in May 2017 when I leased it and 23 payments of $137 and so it made sense to lease it since it seemed extremely cheap option back at that time.
Thanks again everyone...
