SVT seats or stock

I got a set of SVT seats for fairly short change.

After cleaning them up the driver seat is showing some wear at the seat section and lower back section.

Now I am tossed as to leaving the stock seat in or putting in the SVT seats.

Interior is light gray and seats are red/black. Car exterior is black.

Test fitting the SVT seat. tell me what you think.

Thanks

I cleaned them.

The black you see on the seat portion is where it is worn.

Also my stock seats are basically the same shape with the side bolsters and all.

Keep the SVTs.

Side note: whats up with your door panel inserts, like whats on the top part of them? They look different than stock ones.

SVT seats are always cool, but honestly I like the stock ones in your application.

I like SVT's more, but condition is always the selling point for me, use the ones in best shape. I would get distracted by the wear spots, if it were me.

I would go with the most comfortable seats. I know nothing about the stock seats in your car, but I do know the SVTs are a huge improvement over stock 05 seats. Theyn are infinitely adjustable, so you can adjust them to suit the task at hand (highway, twisties, auto-X, etc) Do the air bag wires on the SVTs match up with the stock wiring? Does an air bag light fail you in NH? Have fun.
