Focus ST Recaros in a Focus SVT

I was wondering if anyone has ever tried this? I think it would be really cool since they make recaros with blue inserts that would match my car. Is this possible or would the swap not work? I am just wondering for future upgrades.

I have heard the new Focus ST seats are too wide for the older Focus but the Fiesta ST seats are said to fit. It would take some modification more than likely to bolt them in and get them working correctly.

Do they make fiesta ST recaro seats with the blue inserts? Any ideas where to find them if they do make them? I think this would be sweet!

I believe this has been done before. IIRC it involved custom brackets and everything not worth the time/effort IMO.

As stated you would have to fabricate custom mounting brackets to make the seats from a FiST fit a Mk1 focus. I have not paid much attention the the FiST community so I couldn't tell you if they did blue inserts or not.

I own a FiST and no blue inserts. They all have the standard gray colored inserts for the FiST Racaro seats.

It was done with FoST seats Vincent. But yes the seat rail was reused from the Focus SVT/Standard seats. Last I heard he got it to fit.

We will let Roger use his talents to find the thread.
