Thrilled for you, "arnon"! Congratulations!

You've also shown the proof of the pudding: new, 20,001+ reservations holders will indeed take delivery long before those in the hinterlands who put down deposits well over a year ago. Well... feel free to drive down from WA to Canyon Country sometime: you're welcome to use my idle EVSE. LEAF owners should slurp up our solar electrons, as intended!

I'm glad I got mine through registeration process. Nissan Bellevue called last week that they have one SL Silver $10K over msrp. :cry: Is it legal ??
It's legal. If someone orders the car but then abandons the order after it's being shipped, the car is 'orphaned' and the dealer is free to sell it however they want. $10k over retail seems a bit ridiculous to me, however.

Does it have the quick charge port? I think that might be important down the road, for you, and for resale value.

If it's an SV, it can't have the Quick Charge.

If the OP does not want that feature, then I would use it as a strong bargaining chip to lower that price. Otherwise, wait a bit for yours.

Thanks guys. I feel the same way about not having QC. Not having charging dock at home ready for my car is not what I called 'proactive' either.
This dealer has no problem seeling this car at that price. pay to play, or pass at this point :-(
