I own the stock seats...they are good, but yeah, the Euro's is better! The have a better grip, and higher side supports. I do like the blue/color of the stock seats though.....

I haven't heard anything about the recaros being fake...

well i think recaro would have a big problem with ford putting their name on a seat if it didn't come from them... just my opinion...

It's certainly possible that the seats are licensed BY Recaro for Ford to manufacture, so that they would be Recaro seats, but not technically Recaro seats since they are made by someone else under license...

There's nothing wrong with the stock seats though, at least for street use they are more than enough.

yea, i agree with SVT4ME. I like the stock seats a lot. They look good and are comfortable. But it would be nice to have the recaros.
