I see the cover plate for the tow hook on the new one... not too bad. Looks like the ride hight is higher, too? It doesn't look as tight, but increased ground clearance will help that underbody cladding last a little longer. Every ICE car I've had, I've managed to scrape that cladding off under the engine bay, and it's hideously expensive to replace -- especially when the fasteners get damaged.
Not sure if this has been mentioned before, but re johnr's recent photo above, I'm just beginning to realize that a front license plate in the shape of US plates, especially a white one, gives the Leaf a rather buck-toothed appearance. My first thought was of Kukla, the one-toothed serpent from the old puppet show (circa 1950s, go ahead and flame me for being old).
I'm not saying this is a deal breaker for me. I have gotten over the fact that this is the first car I'll own of which I don't particularly like the styling. It does, however, make me want to risk not putting on a front plate, against state law. I'm sure that I'll wind up ignoring the appearance eventually.
That's what I meant by mentioning the US spec plate. One of the new videos from the Nissan site has the Leaf being driven with a US spec-shaped white plate, and I agree, worse than the Euro or JDM plate on this car.
