Before I bought it I searched for some pictures and found nearly nothing, so maybe it helps somebody to decide. Bought from Germany, either Ebay:

or directly contact seller at hansenstylingparts@t-online.de

I love the design. As I have my leaf very shortly and drove only few kilometers without the caps, I cannot say anything about consumption, but think it is the same. It is winter here and I am all the time around 18 kWh. The only thing is that you can hear a little noise on driving, but nothing that would disturb much.

I also have to solve the security somehow, unfortunately somebody stole one overnight in the first week :(

It is just to click in, there are stainless holders that hold it in. I will post a picture once I get the new one from Germany (next week)

I like those, mine are always full of snows and ice, I would think that would help, at least on the outside of the tire :)

Any idea why they will not ship to America?

You can get them in the US as well I guess:

I just got my '13 Leaf this past month. I have been shopping for a nice pair of Full Moon Smoothies and so far this is the best one I found. Once I make the purchase and install, this summer, I will post pics.

Looks pretty cool, looking forward to see that! After few months mine are not that perfect, I already lost 2 of them and had to order now. Now it is secured with plastic strap ties, it already saved me one. Hopefully will work good at least until spring, when I change to alloys..

Yeah I am researching best ways to keep the hubcaps fixed on the wheel. I prefer bolt on hubcaps, but you can't get Full Moon Smoothies that way. Or at least I have not seen them yet lol

Should work well with steel rims
