XD, XE, XF Seats in XB

Just a quick one, does anyone know or have tried fitting a set of seats from an XD, XE or XF into an XB? Are any modifications needed or do they bolt straight in?

Yes they fit. The seat patterns all the same.

[edit] For a laugh even the front section of a Honda seat pattern is the same as Ford. Just the rear 2 mounts are about 1-2" short. I run Honda seats in my car. Very corfortable as Honda come with race seats from the factory

Cool, it's always interesting to know what other seats fit, what Honda came with race seats as standard?

Oh okay, they must look pretty small in the Fairmont's cockpit though, or not? Got any pics of 'em?

Nah. Barely noticable in regards to size but they hold you better than standard seats.

I dont find any race seats comfortable. XC GXL are the best

I assume you have a large frame. As race seats are generally aimed at supposed normal size people. My mrs can't sit comfortably in them either.
