I bought a LEAF car cover at the dealership. It is from "Covercraft" and is silver outside, fuzzy white inside. LEAF logo on hood area and on storage bag. $230 plus tax. It is a lot bigger out of the shipping box. I stretched it over car by myself, with some difficulty. A clean car is quite slippery. The fit at the side mirror pockets is very tight. The elastic fit under front and rear are OK. Clear window for rear license plate is correct. There is a small clear window for the charging lights behind the windshield. It sticks to the glass if it is warm and glass is clean. A flap for the SL level solar cell panel is fine, but there is no retainer velcro to keep it back when open. Pocket for antenna is okay. The fit at the front for charging door flap is wrong by about 2 to 3 inches. Flap is too high, and pulling cover down against fit at side mirrors won't help. Have to consult with dealership or Covercraft tomorrow about that.
Gregg.

Is that after you folded them in?

Also update the Dest & Handling on p1 to read "$850", since that's what we're charged now.

I'd say it's only $30, but a quote is a quote.

The car cover is built for the side view mirrors to be
in the standard un-use position, not folded in.

If you are placing orders now, they have added Cold Weather Package to NissanUSA.com website:

cold weather package
$930 MSRP***

if you operate your Nissan LEAF™ in a part of the country that experiences a real winter – with ice, snow, and sub-zero temperatures – we highly recommend the cold weather package. this package includes:
[list=]
[*]battery heater
[*]heated front and rear seats
[*]heated steering wheel
[*]rear seat heat duct
[*]heated outside mirrors
[/list]

They've also added it to the http://www.nissanproduct.info/public.php?modelid=69 page. Now how to find out what the invoice pricing will be on this. I believe this will be a Factory Installed Option.

All right! I'll be installing the heated seats and steering wheel right away. Probably slowly work on installing the others as time and money permit.

I do realize they'll probably tell us that they can't be added to existing vehicles, but in actuality it's probably just labor intensive and they don't want to deal with it. As long as part numbers and service manuals exist, we'll be upgrading! :D

I have discovered that the chome trim on the sides of the car are included in at least the eTEC version I ordered. People who ordered the "trim package" get a decal on the door, a blue shift cover plate and blue accents on the dash equipment. So far no one is too excited about the decal and dealers are already replacing this on request with the chome trim. Bad news is list price $70 EACH. Of course you need two. On the bright side the price is negotiable. Also note that the dealers do not have this in stock so it must be ordered - delivery currently 3 weeks.

Chrome trim? Do you mean the chrome "Zero Emission" logo? Maybe if you have a picture I can figure out what you're referring to.
