won't be long before I win my bet predicting £5000 Leaf in 2014
not at all... just looking forward to the celebration party
@Paul_Churchley had a quote from we buy any car for £7420 recently and his has done a lot less miles than the gumtree Leaf iirc... prices are falling and the number of Leafs on sale is slowly increasing (now often around 200 on auto trader).Either this is a windup or there is something else they are not telling about the car and if its not a windup they are stupidly selling it low.

No No surly the cars can be made to run for many years to come as battery prices come down? one hopesUnfortunately the lower the prices go the more we will have to hold onto our Mk1 Leaf. By the time the Tesla Model E (or whatever they call it) is launched we will probably just take out the battery for solar storage and scrap the car!
Paul if you think about it the Leaf would probably brake for spares or for someone who want to build their own EV?I think that a car can go up for sale at any price... it is what it actually sells for that determines its value.
W.B,A.C can give as good or better prices than a trade price offered its just they only pay good prices on the cars that are wanted or what they know they can sell.Its either a fake add or there is something that they are not telling you about the car, if you want a laugh put your roadster in to we buy any car and see how much they offer you, they are a massive piss take and can not be used to judge the residuals on any car.
Sure second hand prices are dropping but not by this much, this is also why leasing is the preferred option, I hate to think what some of the early adopting high mileage leaf owners are going to get for their cars in the future, but that is the price you pay for early adoption.
I am feeling better about my bet with @Kevin Sharpe all the timeI cant see a Leaf hitting 5K this year unless its in a bad way or has done spaceship miles and the battery is missing bars.
