SVT seats in a wagon?
 
So I went for a road trip and I really don't like my stock cloth seats. I've been looking into other options and I'm wondering if SVT seats are directly bolt on into a wagon except for the bottom rear. I know that they are for the ZX3 and ZX5 but I'm wondering if the bracket for the upper rear seats is the same in the wagon and the hatches. If anyone could let me know that would be great.

Also I'm wondering if SVT seats are all power or if some are manual.

Thanks.

Front seats bolt up fine, bottom rears are fine but i don't remember if the rear brackets are the same i will find out.My buddy had recaro seats in his wagon from a zx3.

IIRC only the drivers seat has the power feature of moving the seat bottom up and down, but it has the pull slider for the rail

Thanks, do you know if the wiring to get it to work would be entirely custom or do all foci have it?

If they are red SVT or, Recaro SVT seats, you must ship them to me ASAP.

If they are blue, take Red01focus's advice.

Unfortunately I only have them in my dreams right now. My currently plan for getting them is for a wrecked SVT to appear in one of the local yards exactly when I have the money for the header and exhaust as well as the seats.

yeah svts don't pop up often and when they do they get picked quickly, as for wiring my wire is different so i had to get the harness for the seats to plug in,if your lucky your plugs might be the same

I realize that in reality I will probably need to by stuff bit by bit in the BST as funds become available. Right now all the money is still going into mechanical issues. This thread is more for brainstorming for the summer as well as the off chance that I find a deal that is too good to pass up so that I'll be well informed.

if that ever comes up (cheap seats!) buy them... worst case scenario is you can fit there rears perfectly and it annoys you enough to resell them.
