Lightbulb To Swap or Not: Mach Edition Seats

Well today I went to go pick up some headlights off of a Mach Edition Focus. When I was at the guys house I also asked how much he wanted for the seats and was so surprised by the price that I bought them. Currently I have a SVTF with the BLUE cloth and leather seats. The Mach Edition came with all cloth seats, but they have a nice "mesh-like" feel to them. I'll post some pics below so you can all see what the seats look like (they need a good cleaning as well).

So should I swap out the seats? I have both the front and back. Also, has anyone ever swapped sedan seats into a ZX3? I don't think I've ever seen Mach seats in a hatch before...

Keep in mind my SVT seats have cracked leather and are pretty beat up as-is.

The Pics:

Yeah they look nasty right now, but I have faith that they won't look nearly as bad with an hour of work in them...

i like them..
the sedan front seats dont fold forward like the hatches and the back fold release buttons are different, but you could swap the cloth it self and install them to you current seat frame. thats how a got roush hatch seats to fit in my sedan.

Only the front ones will swap. You could do a fabric swap, but thats kinda a pain. If you do decide that they wont work, id be interested in taking them off your hands

it takes some work but yeah like said the rears will need to be fabric swapped, you can swap the front fabric as well so that the seats still fold forward

I'm cleaning them up now, so I'm going to see what they look like in the car hopefully in the next few days. Should have some updated pics!

hmm since you have a hatch the back seats have the corner button that allows them to flip forward but the sedan uses pull buttons in the the trunk to release the seats so these wouldnt have the spot to push down on the button open to see so not sure how swapping the backs would go. i mean i have svt seats in my sedan but they dont latch the same way but im not really worried about it since nobody sits in the back
