Not sure what you mean by "bling" lights, but put up the link to see what you are unhappy with. There are lots of different versions of stuff out on eBay, and some is overpriced junk, but others are great values.

funny you should ask - just got my Bling Lights in the mail - what a DUD!

ALL PLASTIC, including the mounting brackets - junk - they weren't cheap either, $99 on eBay

Sending them back and just made a post to see if anyone else had some better options...OEM is an option but pricey...

Do the hi-end Leafs ("Leaves"???) have illuminated window/lock switches? If so, is it possible to install them in a lowly Leaf S, or would it require serious wiring?

I asked about a lighted window/lock switch upgrade at the dealer parts counter. He found only a single number for each of the switches, evidently there's no lighted switch upgrade.
Curious to me that the top-of-the-line Leaf would NOT have lighted switches. Too bad!

Not sure if I should post this here but has anyone found out the biggest wheel sizes we can use on the Leaf? (Thought it better to keep it with this main list, admin please move if it should be elsewhere). I've read through the few posts of people putting bigger wheels on and lowering them and they do look good but was hoping to find out how far I can go without modifying arches etc. Would really like a set of 19"s on there as the wheel arch imo is massive and drowns the standard 16 and 17" rims. (Also I know this would have an effect on range but my circumstances allow for that :) )
