I think I might look for a 2-position switch and maybe even the same thing that is used for the heated seats. I'm going to see if the dealer has anything that will fit that spot in stock when I'm there. I really only need "no heat" (Mode 1) and "full heat" (Mode 0).
If you only need ON/OFF you can use any ON/OFF switch. This one will fit: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/ON-OFF-S ... 67696.html
This will fit nicely into the excisting panels, but will not look very OEM....
BUT: It will not look OEM. And beware DO NOT CONNECT THE BULBS/LIGHTS! And before you use any "seat heater" switch, please make sure that there are no resistors in the switch.
I am in the process of trying to get a custom made switch that will be very simular to ethe OEM switches, but this will not be avaliable before Q2 at the earliest. The cost of production is very high when the production is only a hundred. The price would be very different if the order was on a 1000 units or more. At the moment I am still about $ 1 500 in the red (but do have the $1600 in value in stock), so I am not too keen on spending another $ 2K on swithces that may not sell for another 2-3 years ore more.

I was able to route the switch cable down through the opening between the center console and the cup holder console, remove the blank that covers the heated seats on/off (I don't have them), and pull the switch up through the opening; no holes to drill and no wires to cut. I'm still thinking about converting to a 2-pole (on/off) switch, or I might even look for an (used/junked) OEM Leaf switch made for that spot.
Thanks for your feedback. I am happy that you could install it so easily.
And just a "top tip" for others that want to do the same: Use torch/flashlight when wiggeling the switch from the centre console to the lower center console. It is a bit "fiddely", but a torch will help you. And it is a bit more room on the right side in the console than on the left.
And once again:
