$1595 is for cloth Recaro too, the leather you would have to factor in the cost of a premium package to be accurate. (it is 1595+ for the recaro seat frame opposed to a standard seat)

The prices for modifications in canada are a lot higher then what people in the U.S pay. $1800 for recaros here are relatively cheap. From a ford dealer here was quoted 3500 for them. And as you stated above $1595 option is when you factor the price of your current 401a leather seats so technically its $1595 plus your current seat value.

Are you going to leave your back seat like it is, or get a leather replacement for it? The Recaro's are awesome seats. I shopped long and hard to find some.

Nice! That is a big bonus. That is one reason I held off on some leather fronts, since our interior is cloth. Considered the seat delete as well had we gone that route.

Steeda just came out with a new X brace that doesn't delete the rear seat. I'm not sure if u heard about it or still want to delete the rear seat
