i-miev advice for a non owner

I know I might not get one for $8000 but I know the price will come down in September when the 5 year warranty will expire. As well my thought of buying it from Japan, which is still an option - http://www.goo-net-exchange.com/php/search/summary.php?maker_cd=1040&car_cd=10401038 So many i-miev to p...

Apparently Tritium did the BMS for these cars. Some of the cars have 3 phase charging with Mennekes (yep bloody Mennekes..!!) and what looks like 3 x Brusa chargers under the rear shelf. It would be great to see these with dedicated owners and not lost. I think they could be convinced to sell to ent...
