    Just got this delivered last night from LA. It’s a 2015 with 56k miles.

    I have connections for body and paint so should be an easy fix.

    This is my first plug in, so I don’t know too much. Key fob came with the AC button, so that’s cool.

    These don’t come with spares? It didn’t come with the charging cable, where should I get one from?

    What are some things I should know about the plug ins?

    my 2015 has a spare but it's not a plugin....I've read you can get charging cables online, ebay, etc. Mind telling us how much the winning bid was...this looks like minor damage to me. It could be driven without repair maybe?

    BTW my 2015 is a salvage ...over 2 years and no problems.

    The Nissan Leaf charger is compatible. Look in your mini-trunk for the fix-a-flat kit, including a special electric air pump and a bottle of goo that attaches to it. No jack is required, but if you ever need one, look for the jack in a secret compartment under the driver's seat. P.S., the goo kit will ruin your TPMS sensor, and the tire will need to be cleaned out, so you may want to carry your own plug kit and a little air compressor to use instead.

    5600 was the winning bid, 6300 after fees and around 7000 with sales tax.

    Good Luck.
    Is the hood misaligned?
    My concern would be frame damage.

    Was this a clean title salvage? (You can pm me)

    just wondering where you buy from. I buy from all over as I can (dealer) but the prices are just whacky all over because of so many factors in the last 6-8 months.

    Use craigslist for the cord and spare;).

    There's a guy in Fairfield that sells Ford cords for $100:).

    Guess where I got my spare cord from:whistle:?

    Good luck with the plug in my dude(y).

    It's salvaged. It was purchased from IAAI using a broker.
