GT vs. V6 leather seats for 2012 convertible

Found some GT convertible leather seat take offs. Would they fit V6? Seller says I would need extra foam but I don't see why I would. GT and V6 seats seem the same to me.

Did this at Roush. 200 for the leather, 200 to put on. Looks great, nothing extra needed to my knowledge.

Are you saying that for $400 you got leather installed in your car? Was this for all seats?

Seller is saying, I'd need more foam in bolster area. Really can't find anything that says GT has more side bolster foam than the V6. Does anyone have that information?

I looks great! I can't believe you got it done for so little (compared to the prices I see for leather seat covers on eBay. Where did you have done?

Roush. I have a buddy there, he kept trying to push extra covers on me lol "it's only 200 bucks, you can make some money..." But what I saw was always about the same price. I didn't think I really got a deal, just a fair charge from a reliable source. Here are mine, just got to the gym (always take the Stang to the gym).

You been doing drive-bys or what??

Look at all those bullets.... .22LR?

Funny thing about those .. my friends truck looked a lot like that with ammo boxes everywhere. One of the .22 rounds fell into the seat track, he adjusted his seat and the round went off (damn rim fires). It somehow missed his leg and went straight into the dash just under the CD player. Fun stuff.

For duty I use 9mm, for killing ground chucks I use 22s. They were in a little carry bag I use when in the woods, and I don't really take turns, uh, gently...so they went everywhere. I was organizing a spare room and told my buddy about the ammo I had- some 1600 rounds, and as I kept going, I found more and more. Boxes of ammo just everywhere lol

So this is re-upholstered in leather rather than taking seats off of a GT?

When Roush gets their cars in (that are premiums) they take off the leather exterior And put on their own. So this is taken off of another- same seat insides, just leather outside instead of cloth.

They may have more, shoot Roush an email on it. You will have to install or have it done locally, unless you like driving up there like me.

For the seats and installation, will be about $500. Not too bad in my opinion.

Not too bad?! I think that's pretty great! It seems like all of the decent looking Takeoffs I see are around $500 before installation. Good deal there.

They didn't have anymore but there are some others on eBay for around $400-500. If you do the install yourself, it'll be a great deal. Even with installation somewhere, I'd imagine you'd still get a decent bargain.

Not 100%sure, but I believe there is a slight difference between the rear seats for the 2011-14 coupes and convertibles.

Oh yea, I didn't think about the back seat. That could be different, definitely. I only ever sit in the drivers seat unless I'm vacuuming.
