SVT Seat Switcheroo

The more I see the SVT seats (standard I think, not the Recaros) the more I like them. I am referring to the black ones with the blue cloth inserts. Before I seriously consider poking around for them or even devoting a lot of time to wishing I had them, I was wondering how difficult it would be to put them into a ZX3?
I would probably do both fronts and rear since it would look foolish otherwise, so does anyone know if they directly bolt up? If not, is it a complicated extraction and replacement procedure or more a matter of pulling the brackets from the donor SVT? Lastly, do the rear ones fold down like my current ones (I dont see why they wouldn't, but who knows)? Any help you guys have would be greatly appreciated, and if you're coincidentally looking to ditch these particular seats, I know an interested buyer... thanks in advance!

Here's a link to someone's gallery picture of the seats in question, in case you're unsure of the ones I am babbling about (sorry for stealing your picture djstyedino):

I'm not sure how to attach a Gallery picture into the thread, especially one that's not mine, so if the link doesn't work, my bad. Oh yeah, can anyone tell me what that little thing is on the drivers seat, near the timestamp, looking like a catch or handle of some sort?
