|red2009se||I had my seat backs modified, added firmer cushions and lumbar support device with hand pump. Well worth it! I had it done at a shop that does both car and boat seating.|

Only problem about the mazda seats is they arnt a drop in fit and they are just way to high for used seats. They do look cool ill admit but dang i need wheels before i pay $300. for a set of used seats.
I wonder if an 03 4 door coupe style focus will have better seats?
There is a pick and pull place in my area ive gone to a few times and seats are in just about every car, they are easy to find but what fits? and are they worth removing? front end and body parts are whats hard to find.
wheels, tires, body and engine parts are usualy stripped but interior parts are usualy all in there.

Well these aren't ford, but Mazda is close enough though, right?
RX8 (2004-2008) seats take a bit of modification apparently. I believe the rails are the same, but the distance between them is different.
You would probably have to fab your own wire harness for the seat sensors, but if you are feeling adventurous, here are some pics:
There are many colors available:
2009 Recaro RX8s would be nice (No idea if these use the same rails though):

I just installed SVT seats in my 05 ST, precisely because the stock seats are c*#p.
They are like night and day! SVT seats are supportive, firm, almost infinitely adjustable for rake and lumbar support, and they just happen to look very similar to the stock ST seats.
You can find SVT seats here, and on other Focus forums for $300-$500 (or thousands if you want the euro-Recaros). Money very well spent IMHO.
CAVEAT! I have not, and I'm not sure anyone else has yet figured out how to match the complex wiring harness of the SVT seats (they come with heaters and power height adjustment) with that of the ST, in order to get the seat belt and air bag lights to go out, or whether the air bags will even work. It may be that the air bag modules between model years are incompatible.
Nonetheless, they are superb seats.
