|sleepyboy||I've had 4 sets of factory seats. The ZX3 seats are closest to SVT (normal ones not Recaros) seats. I had sedan seats and they are flatter and the side bolstering is slightly less. Has far as ZX5 seats go I would assume they would be the same as the ZX3. But Assumption is the mother of all *&^* ups. Also the normal SVTF seats have a different internal bracket. I noticed in my friends SVTF when the seat flips forward there is a whole frame work that moves with it. Also the release handle is mounted high in the seat back. In normal 2 door seats the top part of the seat just flips forward and the release lever is on the side of it closer to the bottom. It's also just a lever that can break (cause the do) and the SVT's is a handle which I haven't seen break on anyones yet.|

I have some new seat covers, that are listed for a 00-01 Sedan. Do you guys think it matters if you used seats with more side bolster, thinking it would compress somewhat into the covers? I think I may just get spare seats and redo them instead of tearing mine apart.
Also, did they ever make power seats for these cars? I haven't found any evidence so far. Since my car is gonna stay slow, thought I may go a different direction with the interior, more comfort and gadgets.

all I know is I have an 01 and it poked a hole completely through my seat, it's really sharp and painful

yeah my 07 zx3 seats have larger lower and upper side bolsters than my girlfriends 07 sedan, i guess it's for more of a sporty feel and support. don't really have any experience with the older models.
now if only my right upper side bolster would stop getting messed up I'd be happy.

|mwalsh||^^^ Interesting. Doesn't Ford know they can save money if they use all the same parts in these cars?|

|DerekGrugan||^^^ hmm i never knew that, that exaplains alot why the other day when i was sitting in a zx5 the side bolsters did feel bigger but i thought it was just cuz it was a newer seat|

Sedans are flat like a pancake
zx3's have bigger side and leg bolster
zx5 has more side bolster but the leg bolster facing the door is flatter than the one facing the console. At least mine is, I have a zx5 seat on my driver's side.

|slipster17||to my knowledge they only really changed the design of the seats with the 08+ models. All the other seats are interchangeable and I would think use most of the same part numbers for the internals.|
