There are people with leather seats that would like the Recaro's. Put the subject out there on a few forums and you will probably be able to find someone to swap with you.

If you find them you still won't be able to enable the heated/cooled function that is on the cars with the leather seats from the factory. The switches and settings aren't in the center console. I do believe they bolt right in though but not sure.

Well finding stock Leather Seats will be a challenge. My understanding is that the Leather Option was only 18% of the mix, pretty rare. Also the heat and cold options have nothing to plug into. You might look into having seats recovered with Leather. FYI, You might find the bolstering in the Recaro very forgiving on long drives and a e great if you Perfomance drive the car.

FYI it's not Ricardo but rather Recaro race seats and they are stock seats in your GT350. The modification your contemplating will significantly devalue your car. You might consider trading your car in on a special order for the model you want.

I too could not stand the Recaro seats in the GT350 (really weird as I had them in my Boss 302, GT500, Focus RS but they blew the comfort aspect in the 350).

So.....
Out with the old Shelby driver seat

In with a new Mustang power seat that I found on CL

I have the matching passenger seat but am on the fence about putting it in...I have had no riders complain.

I know most people love the Recaros, but I personally have the heated and cooled leathers and I am really happy about it. The purpose of my car is to be a bit more of a GT and I definitely them to be a lot more comfortable. I also prefer the way they look. My opinion seems to be the opposite of most so it shouldn't be hard to find someone who wants to do a straight up swap I wouldn't think.

I agree with all you said. I tried the Recaros in a dealer car and they just didn't feel good. I'm happy with my leather seats.
