My brother called me out of the blue last weekend saying he was buying an I-Miev and was naturally asking all sorts of questions. He found a black 2012 ES online with 7000 miles on it with steel wheels but no fog lights, basically a base model but he did say it has the remote. He's not even sure if it has quick charge. He said he'll find out when they deliver it next Saturday.
What happened is my brother came to California last summer for vacation at my parent's house from North Carolina and I drove over to visit a for a few days in my I-Miev, of course. We drove all over Marin County, to the top of Mount Tamalpais, Stinson Beach, restaurants, etc. and of course I told him it was my favorite car but I never tried to sell him on one. This is a great surprise to me but I'll find out more this Saturday.
