I really dont understand this either which is another reason why my present car was so appealing, as it has nearly all the optional extras yet still retains the rather nice cloth seats. Id also like the option extended to steering wheels.
I am also veggie, I have raised this before as I read before I purchased that the leather in a LEAF is not real. If I remember correctly it's about 5% but can't find the article
Any of you thinking the seats are made of dead cow just take a close look, no matter how well you tried, the inside of a cow can't be made bright blue when the dark stain is applied to the surface if they were leather. On top of that turn the map pocket inside out on the back of the seat and you can actually see they are not leather.
Now I might be wrong here, but I thought that it was Vegans that don't want any animal product and vegetarians just don't eat meat or fish or is this a word that has changed meaning since the invention of Wiki ?
When my dad found out I'd ordered a leaf he didn't want to be left out and ordered himself a black edition!
I might be biased, but I much prefer my Flame Red Tekna! The wheels look much better and the leather inside is much classier.
Last Friday the Leaf30 had a minor service at Glyn Hopkins Waltham Abbey.
For the last 2 days every time demister is switched on, it makes a loud noise.
Of course it's not covered under warranty and since they have no clue , they'll only charge £114 for diagnostic.
Anyone experienced issues...

At a recent minor service of my 2016 LEAF30 at my local Nissan dealer I reported that there is click sound when brakes are first applied in a new direction, as if the pads shift to a new position. Also, I occasionally hear a springy twang from the suspension. The dealer rep said it might be...
I have some stats to report on the subject of heating.
Can't be compared directly as the temps were quite different, just for illustrative purposes.
Both journeys had same driving style, same traffic etc.
Yesterday into work -

I'm going to buy an older iMiev/C-Zero/Ion or a Leaf in the £5000 to £7000 range. I thought I might ask If anyone has had experience with both, or has any thoughts about which would give the best value for money in that price range.
(Also posting this in the PSA forum to see what responses I...
