FS/FT: Recaros, Badges, and PIAA Fog Lights
What: (Front) Recaros and a Euro ST Badge
Who: X6StringerX - Jordan Atha
Asking Price: See description for more details.
Location: Bentree, WV (25125)
Contact Info: PM me. I check my messages multiple times a day.

Item #1 - Recaros: SOLD to 1slosvtfoci, thanks Josh!

I would strongly prefer to trade these locally for stock front seats + cash, but will consider selling them straight out if I can't find someone to swap. With that being said, the front seats MUST match my factory rear seat. See the pictures below to see the pattern of my stock rear seat. I would prefer that the stockers come from a non-smoker and be clean, however, I would consider lightly abused seats + more cash.

Anyone that is interested in the Recaros probably already knows all of the details, but here's a quick summary: they're leather, power, heated, and have air bags. These seats have never been hardwired in my car. I bought the car and they were already installed. The driver's seat is an 8/10 with some scratches on the bottom (see pictures). I'll get a closer pic of the scratches soon. The passenger's seat is a solid 9/10.

*NOTE* I will gladly swap my ATX heated seat center console to the seat buyer for their ATX non-heated seat center console at no extra charge as long as the replacement console is in comparable condition.

Item #2 - Factory Focus Trunk Badge: $7 shipped to lower 48

It needs to have the remainder of the old adhesive cleaned off and new double-sided tape before it can be installed.

Item #3 - Euro ST Badge: SOLD to ChazimusZX4ST, thanks!

It was installed on the car when I bought it, so it will also need new double-sided tape.

Item #4 - PIAA 1500xt (1552) Fog Lights: Sold Locally

I previously had these listed as 2100 series lights, but I now believe they are 1500xt after further research. I don't see a model number on them anywhere, so I cannot be 100% positive. I'd like to ask that anyone who is interested in these please consider this before you make the purchase. I'm providing a couple links below that helped me base my claim as to their model. The 2nd link indicates that these lights go for about $260 shipped new. Save a considerable amount and buy mine instead!

Bump for the badge! New mine cost $65 to get from the UK. If its a TRUE Euro ST badge that is, some are look a likes.

I just added a couple extra pics.

Gokart, can you verify if the badge is a genuine Euro badge?

the seats in my car were/are in great shape. im thinking they match your back seat but ill have to check. they have been under el cheapo fake leather seat covers ever since i bought the car. i am a smoker but if you request, you wont be able to tell by the time im done cleaning them up. i dont have an ATX center console to swap but i may be able to find one. how much boot would i owe you for this swap if my seats are both a solid 8/10 or better with no evidence of them being smoker seats? i can come up to WV. i have family up there ive been meaning to visit for awhile. and would we be be able to completely swap seats at a place of your choosing in WV? because i would have to have something to sit on all the way back to hickory NC and i havent ever pulled a front seat out of a focus and at this point i have no idea how involved it is. if its anything like replacing an alternator (should be simple but it isnt) then i may require help! im extremely interested depending on the amount of boot you want

I'm looking for $500 + stockers for the Recaros. I doubt it would take longer than 45 minutes to swap them. I've already had the Recaros out of my car once to install carpet. It's pretty straight forward. One thing you should know before making the trip here is that in order to have the powered functions of the Recaros, you'll need to hardwire the seats to your harness. I'm sure there is probably a write-up somewhere, but I've never bothered to search for it. They have never been wired in my car and I knew when I purchased the car that I would want to replace them with stock seats anyway, so I never investigated the matter. One good thing is that the seats will manually slide forward and backward, so you should be able to find a comfortable position for your journey back home.

In what part of WV is your family? I actually have family in both Mocksville and Wilmington, NC. One of my uncles lived in Statesville for a while as well, but he moved to Louisiana a couple of years ago. My plans are to relocate to the Carolinas after I graduate from uni in December, but I'm mainly interested in SC because the weather tends to be a little warmer throughout the year.

how much do u want for just the st badge

I was the previous owner and I can vouch that the ST badge is authentic. I bought it here on the forums a couple of years back from another member. i would recommend looking at the back of the badge to check the ford model number just to be safe.

Also the center console is the stock SVTF Console. Purchased with the seats earlier this year.
