Don't forget wiring them up to the air bag module. Depending which year seats you get, there will be some rewiring necessary to keep the air bag light off. Read this before you spend too much $$$ http://forums.focaljet.com/interior-...ap-thread.html. Good luck! The SVT seats are certainly worth the trouble. They are so far superior to the originals (at least the '05s).

Man, at those prices you might as well get some aftermarket Recaros and get the seat cover you want. End up costing almost similar amounts of money.

You have to buy them used that is the only way to go. I bought a set of SVT Recaros last summer for $600. You just have to watch for the deals and when they come up you have to jump on it!

Just take your time and you'll find a used set for sale. Also, check out Craigslist and local junkyards. Every once in a while SVT parts pop up for sale locally, and they're normally cheap, so you wouldn't have to deal with shipping either.

Unfortunately after learning first hand how much of a PITA an SVT interior swap can be I decided to bail on my swap
