ST Base Model Seats?

Does anybody have a picture of the ST base model seats? Are they the same seats offered in a regular Focus like the SEL?

These are kind of drab - too much like the lower-level regular cars...the ST2 Recaros are so much nicer. With so much black on the console/center stack + manual A/C controls, it reminds me of the S model.

For me, it would have to be an ST2 or nothing.

Those are the sport seats from the '12 SE sport package and yes,not as exciting as the Recaros but they really aren't too bad of seats.

Only reason I ask is because although the Recaro's "look" awesome to me in the pictures... once I sat in them, I knew I couldn't live with them for a daily driver. The bolstering is so aggresive, I felt very uncomforatble in them.

Those seats don't look terrible, I'd be happy with that. However, it sucks you're basically stuck with NO options at that point. Only other option would be to get the ST2 or ST3 package, and swap seats + cash with somebody that wants them.

The ST2+ seats are so aggressively bolstered, they literally jab into the middle of my shoulders! The seats in my SE Sport are close to perfect for me, so I'd have to go the same route as you with a seat swap since they don't allow any real choice in options.

It's bad that I'm going to consider other cars simply because I can't have base seats, navi, and HIDs without Frankensteining options..

I wish the lateral supports were adjustable (inflatable?) I'm a tad wider than I was when I was 25. They squeeze me too tight. But they look hot.

Drove an ST1 yesterday. The cloth seats fit me exactly like my Ti leathers do. I just wish they didn't look so bland. All that black fabric is so plain. It needs a pattern or some texture. Might be worth looking into aftermarket leather.

Liked the car otherwise, except for the lack of anything on the overhead console. Not even a sunglass holder....bah.
