Question What seat to replace factory ED XR8 passenger seat with for more comfort

Ok here's the deal. My mum is spending mucho time in my Sprint ever since I lost my work AU and my father passed on.

She *hates* the front seat in my car so I'm thinking of replacing it with a more comfortable (for her) seat from another Ford. Which seat from say a Ghia/Fairlane/LTD would fit?

It must be EF design or later and be a reasonable colour match with my Ironbark grey interior. Leather or velour would be preferred.

Depends if you want the electric options. for your colour choice I'd say Fairlane. dont think the LTD came in that colour.

Go round to a hot (stolen) parts yard and you will probably be able to pick up seats from a AU Fairlane/XR6.

Question

Can anyone confirm whether the newer seats are all drop in replacements as is? Non-electric of course.

to the best of my knowledge from EF on to XR the seat runners are the same. a quick call to a ford dealer can confirm this.
