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.
