Does anyone know if the 2019 Recaro seats are still as tight the previous model years? Or, after all the complaints, Ford has modified the Recaros for this year. Thanks!
    Hey man they haven't changed at all. Same seats for both the recaros and convenience package.
    I thought I would love the recaros but when I drove the car after about twenty minutes I hated them. I'm 5'9 165 pounds too so not a big guy. They just sucked, sweat like a pig in the heat after being in them ten minutes plus, very limited adjustment, cheap cloth like material, no heat or cooling. When I bought my 2018 the leather heated cooled seats were a must or I wouldn't of even wanted the car.
    Also for the guy who says he swims in these convenience package seats I call bullshit. They bolster and keep you extremely in place. The recaros squeeze excessively to keep you place, these hug you with love and all the comfort is the best way to describe it.
    Don't settle!

    That's awesome, the inserts remind me of my 2010 SHO with the multi-contour seats (love the color combo). Mind if I ask where you got that done and how much it set you back (I have an extra set of GT350R Recaros and a set of Non-R heated and cooled seats that I'm hoping I can combine to get the same thing)?

    Thanks,

    The guy charged me $4500 including Material and Labor and I got the seat covers back for the GT350 to maybe sell plus the airbags (one frameset will be ruined) - there was foam sculpting involved, welding to make the GT350 OEM seat the same as the GT350R seat, and he added the Perforated Alcantara and he added just a little extra Cool Padding for me- it came from Germany and was $1000 for 2 yards. His name is Paul 402-670-0073

    Not cheap but he has lots of awards for great stuff - In my opinion 100% worth it and I just don't know anyone else with Heated/Cooled/ Dua Power/ Lumbar Recaros in a Shelby

    YBLEHSGT350, Thank you for the info. It does seem a little pricey, but I definitely agree that it's worth it. Just so I'm clear, he took a standard (non-Recaros) set of GT350 seats and turned them into the Recaro seats? Also, what cost the $1000 for 2 yards (the Cool padding or the Alcantara)?

    I'm curious as well. It sounds like the leather sport seats were reshaped and reupholstered to look like the Recaro's or they were frankensteined together since the OP mentioned welding. Inquiring minds would like to know.

    In my opinion, the $1000 is for 2 yards of Alcantara.
