2011's with the value package can have leather and manual seats. Mine is like this. No ZPP. Also, in other years couldn't you get leather as a stand alone option and no power seats? I don't remember. You could do this on the 2012 F30 but power seats are std for 2013.

To the OP, the manual seats are pretty good. You miss out on the fine adjustment and the memory and it's also harder to change the seat height. For the rice difference I think you could live with the manual seats especially if you are the main driver.
