That is not a concern, but he will have to also change the headlight assemblies to get it licensed.

To the OP, it depends on where you are in the US. Google is your friend. A $6,000 Leaf may not be worth the hassle.

Unfortunately I can't give any specifics, but I do know that one time I was looking at a LEAF on a dealer's lot, and the salesman came out and said it wasn't for sale, it was going from here (Florida) to Norway.

I have since found out that the LEAF is highly sought after in Norway, so maybe if there is a Norwegian LEAF forum somebody there might be able to help?

Also, people in Europe have been importing American muscle cars for many years, so possibly a muscle car forum there in Europe might have somebody able to help?

There are tons of US-spec Leafs here in Norway, but most of them have been imported by companies which specialize in the trade. That said, I think asking your question on an UK-based forum for American cars would be the best way to go. For instance http://www.corvetteclub.org.uk or http://www.mustangforum.uk. Surely someone there must have been through the process of importing a car to the UK from the US and could give you advice.

Maybe the British subsidy for LEAFs is implemented in such a way that only Britons get it, while the US-made ones that exporters are selling to Norwegians have all had 20% of their cost paid by the US taxpayers?

You're welcome.
