A followup on both topics...
I sourced LED DRLs from http://lightdepot.ca/ and used the wiring method described here: viewtopic.php?f=37&t=6134
Also, I struggled a bit with Carwings but figured it out. I signed up for a Canadian account but fortunately I couldn't add the VIN as it was rejected. So, I signed up for an American account and put in the address of the dealer I bought the car from during registration. I then typed in the VIN and it said it was already registered (likely to previous owner) and gave me the option of opening a chat window.
The Nissan guy on the chat window asked me a few questions and I had to email him my title document, then he sent me back a PIN and Password to enter into Carwings on the car - worked right away!
It seems that even though it's a US Leaf, the SIM card in the non-upgraded TCU roams on Rogers network. Once Carwings was activated, I set the region on the nav system to Canada (BC) and then found that the builtin navigation system was working too.
One oddity is that the NissanConnect app for Android doesn't work, but I guessing that the app is logging into the Canadian account I created and not the "good" US one. So, if you haven't signed up for a Nissan Connect account yet I would recommend signing up for a US account only.
Luckily, Leaf Manager works fine and I can now use the climate controls, see the battery charge, and I don't really care about anything else
