How would these Recaro's look in a Mustang

It is hard to find a "deal" on OEM Recaro's for a Mustang, however......these are affordable with just a little work, I could have these. My question is 1) the airbag plug SHOULD be the same correct?
2) would they look awkward in a mustang cockpit?

I have sat in those in the Focus and they feel really good and plus the color of the leather looks to be the same as the Mustang.

Those would look FANTASTIC in a Mustang. However, the airbag plugs may not be the same, and the airbags themselves may or may not be the same. They are engineered for max protection in the car they are designed for. I don't know that they are interchangeable with Mustangs. Do some research for part numbers, and see if they match. Same with the plugs.

For that price screw the airbags if they don't work ? Look we did not have airbags in seats way back then and were still here right.

I would absolutely agree with you! However, would he have a warning light if he didn't have an airbag plugged in? I don't know, but I could see it.

Yeah he'll have to use resistors to make the airbag light turn off from what I've seen. It's do able, honestly the only thing holding me back from new seats is the airbag light....

Not like the old days where replacing seats was just 4bolts.

It is closer and it is on a office chair pedestal. The further seat is on the ground
