You can recover yourself in a few hours. I suck at DIY and Ive done it twice. New leather covers can be had for about $350. Cloth Recaro seats run around $2500.

Its pretty easy actually, just email the seller you want the mounting brackets and they'll make them for you. And you unscrew the bolts that are holding them in, take the old seats out, then bolt the new ones in

I'd be careful with cheap no name ebay seats. You get what you pay for.

Dude, its time-consuming, but easy. You essentially just peel off the old ones (or cut em off), slip the new ones on and secure as you go (new zipties in the middle, reuse everything else). There are instructions out there too if not provided.

If I was a dude then I think it would be easy. I've never done anything with a car and I don't want to mess anything up.

Personally it'a not hard either way just time consuming and at most a little muscle... Ford or a shop might charge you a hundred I think.. That's what I'd charge but just speaks to them... I didn't it myself after watching a YouTube video

I would pay $100 just to save myself the hassle. I got a ~$300 quote before doing it myself.
