MikeB4: Is there much to save by importing a Nissan Leaf myself and what would be the best source market to look at? Any ideas folks?
Are you looking at the gen 2 or the 'new 2018' model? If the latter, I'm sure there'll be plenty of dealers bringing them in once they become available, whether or not Nissan NZ does.
I'd be interested to know how much you may save doing it yourself. Personally, it would need to be a good amount for me to take the plunge, given one has to wear any risks. It's the same reason why I don't buy cars privately (unless the car's still under a manufacturer's warranty) - I'm too risk-averse to go without CGA or equivalent coverage.
One of my sons lives in the UK and if I were to source from there he is able to do the leg work over there fore me. I would love one of teh new ones due next year that is cited to have a range over 250kms but I think they will be quite pricey for a year or two.
