    In SA you only get leather, unless specially ordered from the factory with cloth!

    I doubt this is an issue for Europe but sun damage on the leather in the cabs is a bit of a problem. So long as you treat the leather once a month it should not be too much of a problem.

    Often if leather has been specced on a car it lifts the whole interior to another level because you get leather door cards steering wheel and gearknob ect.

    Depends on the price and how good the car is otherwise. If it is a good clean car then I wouldn't let the fact that it hasn't got leather put me off. You could always add it later?
