Yeah weeding it out is a bit of a job indeed. Now I know to look for the words charge package helps a bit narrowing down. The price difference between a 2013 and 2015 is small enough for me to go for a 2015.

For now I like this one because the low milage, spare tire and evse but im waiting to find out if it has chademo.

This one should have it according to the description and has a similar milage and price, no spare wheel though:

It looks like in '14 to get the QC on a SV you need to have the "LED Headlight" package, again in '14 to get the QC on a S it needs to have the "Charge Package".
Your first link is the one that mentions "power liftgate".....again never a feature on any Leaf and they mention Bose Stereo but it's not pictured with one nor was the Bose available in the S model, I can't tell from the photos if it has a QC port.
Leafs never came with a spare tire, not sure why someone put one in one of your links but again other than aftermarket it wasn't available but rather the Leaf came with a small air compressor and can of fix-a-flat goo that was stored in the drivers side?? storage area inside the back of the vehicle.

Yup the whole listing is a bit of a clusterfuck. Reached out to both of them, I'll have to see what's in my inbox tomorrow morning.

The roads here are of meh quality, I'm currently carrying a spacesaver in the trunk just to be sure. Don't like the goo because the tireshop hates it when they need to plug it.

To add on my previous post, it's quite hard to determine if the car has Chademo or not, I believe there was a guide on what to look for in a picture of the engine bay somewhere but I can't find it. IIRC something like two extra orange HV wires?

Yes. Two orange-red HV cables running from the "engine" bay to the nose.

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

Thanks, that confirms for me that this car also has it despite not being mentioned in the ad:

It's late 2013, It doesn't have cruise control but at little more than half the price of the previous ones I'm willing to let that go :P

I shipped mine from way up north and glad I did.
It only cost me about $800 to ship from about 1,000 miles away.
Glad I got one with a battery from a cool climate instead of a fried local one.

Called with the dealer of the blue car(https://www.cars.com/vehicledetail/deta ... /overview/) and the first otd export price they send me is $10.900.

Is that reasonable? At a big box dealer like hgregs dealer how much wiggle room is there? Sorry about these questions I am totally unfamiliar with dealers in the US, where I'm from sticker price is otd price.
