I took my car in on Monday for Tony at Skyline to install leather and it was done by Tuesday at lunch time. Whats more, Tony found someone to tint the windows for me at a discounted price with lifetime warranty! Skyline has done some 20 LEAFs since being discovered by Mike Walsh and reported on this thread. I thought Tony and Skyline should have their own thread now that they've provided such good service.

I think some one from down south did come up to Skyline for leather.

I heard about that but they were from North County. I'm from El Cajon, East of downtown San Diego. Way out of my range.

If you have access to a truck you can always truck the seats and the arm rests to Tony.

I drove from San Diego (Mira Mesa). The one way distance is ~91 miles on I-5. From Skyline in Westminster, you can choose to take Pacific Coast Highway 101 most of the way down; speeds are slower and the distance is a good 5 miles shorter. Another advantage is that Laguna Beach is on the way (~1 mile off PCH) with it's free public chargepoint EVSEs (some 25 miles from Skyline) if you want some piece of mind. Just tell the LEAF to take the shortest distance route and it will take the 101 (CA-1).

I also drove up from San Diego (Mira Mesa Area). But, I stayed with the freeways, driving 60-65. On the way, I stopped for a couple hrs of free juice in San Juan Capistrano (Weseloh Nissan). Tony Dang @ Skyline plugged me in to 120V @ his shop while the work was being done; so I had 100% charge when I left for home. On the way back, I stopped @ Nissan of Oceanside (78 & College) for a couple hrs of charge. No reason anyone couldn't make it with a single charge from anywhere in the SAN area. Leather was the best thing I ever added to the Leaf. I just couldn't stand that cheap, fuzzy looking interior from the factory. It makes a HUGE difference.

+ 1 on leather being the best mod to the Leaf so far, second one was window tinting.
