RE: Life without a Fluence
Well - it wasn't a rash purchase... I considered carefully all the options, found nobody was selling them cheaper, there was no requirement for a battery lease, and possibly best of all - they threw in an acrylic display case to keep it looking good!
To be honest, I always get a 1:42 scale model of any car I own (getting the Twizy was hard!) but I'm convinced when they run out, they'll not be any more!
