14 GT Recaros into 12 GT

I spend a few hours searching on the forum here, and it seems like it's more than just a swapping the seats and connect the wires. Although they share the same seat brackets and the wire connectors, they throw the airbag light after installation if the sensing bladder and wire connector is not swapped with 13-14 year ones? is that right? I mean if the air bag doesn't work properly after the installation, then it is not worth it for me so..
Also, how hard/bad is the whole installation process?


Please let me know if anyone knows aboutthis.. thanks in advance

I have a 13 GT - I found a set of factory leather recaros off Craiglist and installed them with no issues whatsoever. They bolt right in - wires snapped together - no airbag fault codes.
Mind you I haven't crashed the car to test them yet...

Oh - easy install - plastic rail covers slide off backwards in the back, 4 bolts each, one wire connector ( DO NOT FORGET to unclip the wires before lifting out the seat - duh)

I swapped 13 Recaros into my 2012, and I have the airbag light and so does the guy I swapped with. We need to take the seats apart and swap the occupant sensors to fix the issue. That being said, I still love the **** out of these Recaros, and it was worth it.
