Leather seats???

Hi all
I'm about to sell my blue K11 as MOT due in Nov and haven't got time to do the work. Looking to buy a diesel K12, probably a euro3 with the better mileage.
Given the age and wear it'll get, did these ever come with leather seats? If so does anyone know of a specialist srappie most likely to have a set (or a good K12 diesel in the West Midlands come to that- based in North Shropshire).
Thanks
 
I know some models came with half leather, I have a euro 4 diesel and would recommend as they are a powerful engine for the body weight and will return a good 70+ mpg in stock condition if you look after them, look for a low mileage model.(y)

Part leather seats are standard in the Active Luxury model, they were optional in the 25th Anniversary model. Leather seats were not AFAIK ever offered as an option by Nissan for other models of the K12, you may be lucky and find one with retro fitted seats from an Active Luxury. Trouble with the Active Luxury model is it has a mostly dreadful beige/magnolia colour trim.

Thanks Mach1. I'll look out for those as it tends to be the edges and sides that split. One vote for the euro4 engine then. I wonder what variant of the K12 (diesel) people think the best?

Thanks Micratec I'll look both those up. Guess I could live with Beige if necessary, but I work outside a lot so something which doesn't show up mud is best!
 
less restriction in the exhaust system the better, don't get taken in with the diesel filters and pig urine additives (Add Blue), these clog up if you don't do regular motorway motoring, put a cetane additive into the diesel at every fill up this will significantly reduce harmful emissions and give a power boost to the engine. EU law on emissions and their constant determination to muzzle diesels is all because the stock fuel at the pumps is low grade and causes lots of soot, a simply additive forces the measured fuel to burn more efficiently hence the low emissions and power boost.;)

Mika I took that measurement you needed and I wrote it in the notes on my phone and took a photo however...I had a disaster or rather my iPhone did, it freaked out, for explicable reason went into something called device firmware update mode so I've lost everything not backed up (how and why I have no idea apart from that my 9 year old son may be implicated somehow ha ha he he) Anyway...I will re-measure in daylight tomorrow if you still need it?

If possible and not too much trouble, yes please!? ;)

I rate the K12 1.5 85/87hp K9K Diesel engine very highly too, superb piece of machinery especially as @Mach1 says a low mileage one with bona fide service history, as we all know regular oil changes are critical on any Diesel engine, the performance isn't throw you back in your seat exciting, it is an allrounder, a great mix of performance and economy. On a long journey cruising at 60mph I've had the car saying I was achieving over 100mpg, take that with a pinch of salt, even if in reality its over 90mpg that is spectacular.
