Make sure you grab some industrial strength zip ties (my local Home Depot has some) if none are included because youll need to replace the existing ties/rings. It's a relatively easy process, just time-consuming. Also, if you dont have seat heaters and/or lumbar, but want them, now is the time to add. And be real careful pulling your seats out. Those track ends are dangerous (to your car)!

Google seat heaters. Easily had from several sites. Easy to install between pad and seat cover. tricky part is what to wire the hot lead to (I.E. a seperate switch by the power seat switch (if equipped), or on the dash, or to the heater switch (if it opens a inner duct valve via hot lead).

I did it years back in my '07 so dont recall, but you can use pretty much any kind. Just poke around online for one with good reviews and a switch you like if its going to show (or you could put em in the center compartment). I just cut a hole with a dremel in the d/s & p/s trim pieces (I did both seats) around the radio to pop the switches in and ran the wires down the trim to the center console and then to the seats. I had a lumbar bladder in there too but IIRC everything wired up to the cluster under the seats. There were easy instructions.

Installed the leather seats and over all it took about 6 to eight hours... I started with the back because those were the easiest and I got a feel before I tackle the front... Would recommend this to anyone here's a few pics of the completed work but if you guys want ill post up the video I shot of taking the back seat out and the pics where the hard parts were...

If you use a iron and a steamer you can get some of the wrinkles out. Just keep moving don't stay in one spot to long.

Yeah it paid off but I couldn't find seat warmers at a decent price anywhere! But it's been pretty cold here and it hasn't been unbearable to sit in!

Those pictures do not do it justice. I was hesitant, bit 400 USD installed for leather can't be beat.

It just makes a plain jane model look high class real quick, in my opinion.

Not to worry. Most all of us will be pulling the drivers seat in about 3 years (if you still have the car) and having the foam replaced in the seat. I've had leather seats in every Ford I've owned, and after about 3 to 4 years, I've had to pull the drivers seat out and have better seat foam installed. It gets old, begins to crumble (you'll see small pieces of foam below the seat when you vacumn the car out). It's not the best seat foam used, but when you take it to a good auto apolstory shop, they will use great quality foam, and the seat will not have the wrinkles caused by the worn out foam.

Personally I'd never buy a rental car... Did you ever rent a car? How did you drive it? Hard and you didn't care because it wasn't yours... Personal choice but did you get a good deal?

Holy crap I've beaten every rental I've had along with 80% of the population! I remeber renting a stang for a weekend just for that purpose. That car probably didn't make it to its second birthday! Lol

Yep... had a Mazda 5 I had for a rental. Instant vibration from the wheels. Came back to the rental place, apparently the previous renter had fun using the ebrake to flat spot the tires and play drift king.
