PhantomNVD: Pinging @ruki for the dash upgrade.
Personally, as range is not a significant factor for your use, I’d say save the money and go for the Gen1 (as I did) and use the time to learn more about EV driving. I’d also really encourage you to trial a ‘longer’ distance trip like Whangarei or Taupo in your leaf sometime and see how much difference the Quick charge every 100km or so is. My young family (2 boys @6&9) actually found we pretty much stop every hour or so for roughly 10-20 mins anyway for toilet and ‘play’ breaks.
The one time we wished we could ‘just drive on’ was a late leaving time and some tired/sleeping kids on the way home from Whangarei. Every other time the $14 return cost definitely made the obligatory stops worthwhile for us.
Thanks man, it was actually one of your posts that I bookmarked about your car purchase details and useful range that has proven most useful. The Gen 1 X I'm looking at sounds very similar albeit with 80% SOH. The Gen 2 happens to have an aero kit and I think that is influencing more than it should be - can't let the boyracer in me go.
