Looks fabulous, Patricio! Very well done and clean modifications, and I really do like the wheels.

What area of Austin are you at? Gotta see those wheels in person.

Thanks... the Leaf needs a bit of sprucing up in my opinion, but I like tasteful!

It's like you're trying to find things to reduce your range...

lol.. well, the side moldings certainly don't, and the sunroof has had zero impact. Wheels and tires maybe; will have to live with them for a week or so to see how they do.

I don't know about side molding but Prii are sold without sunroofs specifically for this reason. I'm sure the new wheels have a higher rolling resistance too. I frankly can't understand why anything you did makes the car any better.

Well, clearly some of us look beyond just range in our cars, thankfully!

I'm not a sunroof fan but I like all the other changes. I did notice that my range dropped by 20 percent when I put on the side moldings, added the LED DRLs, and tinted the windows, however! But I made up 25 percent when I replaced all the incandescents with LEDS, so I'm ahead! :lol:
