After much contemplation and discussion with my wife, we have decided to sell our Leaf rather than our ICE wagon. It is very sad decision as I had the full intention of going full EV however the range of the Leaf just won't be enough for our day to day needs in the near future.
So if anyone you know is in the market for a Leaf with 11 SOH bars and 45,000Kms on the clock. Please let me know and I'll be happy to discuss the sale. I haven't put the ad up on carsales or anything yet.
We have a Model S (certified pre-owned) on the way.

The car has a tentative new owner. Pending payment and pick up this weekend. The Tesla has arrived and it's time to say goodbye to our dear Leaf. It will be missed.
It provided a great entry into the world of EV motoring and opened my mind to a new way of living and it was the catalyst for me to install solar panels on our roof and participation in many discussion forums.
I will definitely still frequent this forum, it's what started it all for me. And also, as I mentioned before, Tesla owners in general up to this point (massive generalisation I'm sure) haven't been the most easy to approach people compared to other EV owners whether it be Leaf, iMiev or home brew.
One time I pulled up next to David at the lights, a former LEAF owner who upgraded to a Model S (he lives a few streets away from me). Among the questions I asked was if he'd been to any Tesla meets. He answered no and said, "Us Tesla owners are a lot more self assured and don't need meets". I'm sure he was joking, but there might have been a hint of truth to it!
I'm aware of Tesla meets in the past at Superchargers. Hope to do something on a smaller scale with the NRMA charging network.
