And all help is appreciated. There are more than just one or two of us that would like to make our Leafs as practical as possible.

The difference between the two types of OE headlights are like in the picture. The LED's (blue car) have a more futuristic look with separate high and low beam sections, whereas the regular halogens (red car) have that distinct incandescent look in a single high/low bulb.

There are aftermarket LED bulbs, like for making the high beams LED. The blinkers (flashers/indicators) can also be changed for LED's. Or you can do what one guy did and put a type of trailer light controller in the rear hooked up to the brakes lights so that the red LED's work as both brake lights and blinkers.

Every little bit adds up you know. But the best bang for buck would start with the rear end aerodynamics:
