It's called sarcasm. I thought that was quite clear to most:) I also noticed the paint was quite thin on my LEAF model. Anyone else notice it rubs off easily?

Nope. Mine did however accidentally got knocked into the sink, which I treated as a divinely inspired way to remove "pollen".

Unlike some others it came through transit without any body damage.

No, but then again, I haven't been rubbing it.

The only damage to ours is the plastic case has a crack along the top. And since our car is blue, it's a match. Now all I need is little tiny Mossy paper plates (I do wonder when our real plates are going to get here).

Before I opened it I was thinking of giving it to my great-grandson, who plays with toy cars a lot more than I do, but I see that the box says "This product is an accurate scale model and not a toy." However, the box also warns, "Do not catch your hands or fingers into moveable parts such as doors and wheels!" Since the only moveable part I could discover was the rear wheels (which move together) I guess I can take anything it says on the box with a grain of salt. Speaking of accurate, that's nowhere close to the color of my blue LEAF.

Bottom line: Anybody that wants mine can have it for the cost of getting it to you.

Edit: DaveinOlyWA was the first to send me a PM, so he is getting it.

I just pm'd you with my contact information...
I'm in Sunnyvale, so I could just pick it up and thus the "cost of getting it to me" would be zero, just like the emission [sic] on our Leafs! ;-)

Is this a random event for some getting the free gift of model Leafs?

Just curious, to all of you who received the free model Leafs, did you participate in any of the past Nissan Leaf surveys?

I can't seem to think other than one may have been rewarded for being part of those surveys....
