Default Boss seats

Finally a vendor is selling the Boss Ford Racing recaro seats (M-63660005-MB)

http://www.281motorsports.com/produc...oducts_id=2564

281 Motorsports has been the only company that I have seen post a price of $1049 for a pair. They only list the seats for the '10-12 but I am hoping to put some in my 2007. Does anyone know if the seat mounts for the 05-09 and '10 are the same?

Sorry, I don't know if they'll work in your 07, maybe with some universal seat tracks....But DAMN! I want those seats!

That's actually not too bad as far as pricing on seats. The corbeua's I put in my RX-7 cost slightly more than that.

Ooooh, just thought about why they might be so cheap. Do they have the airbags in them or not?

Cause if they don't have the airbags, we'd be staring at a nice warning light on the dash, unless of course they take account for that and have a dummy light eliminator in them.....

I have a question about the Boss seats:
Just how comfortable are they? As racing seats, I assume that you cannot tilt them forward or backwards or adjust lumbar support, or raise them up or down.
Of course, the head rest is not adjustable; you cannot even raise or lower them.

For me, maybe these are not an issue since I am not a tall guy, but for someone who is tall, the headrests not being adjustable might be a discomfort.

I assume you can only scoot them forward and backwards and have absolutely no access to the back seat. Thus rear seat deletes from the factory Bosses.

Man those seats are awesome, I to wonder if that price is with/without the airbags? Really not that bad price wise let a few vendors get them in stock&some competition going and by end of summer you can probally get a set for around $700 or so which would be the price point I go for as I've got about that much for my next mod but I'm looking at a seibons cf stalker hood

Given how much time and effort went into the boss, I bet the seats are very comfortable. The seats do not come with airbags, and I am willing to bet the weight sensor for the passenger is not included either.

They have no airbag label on the side ... so possibly they don't support side airbags. Since the BOSS is basically a Base GT ... I would assume they don't support power passenger seat either.

Probably wouldn't be too expensive to order the boss rear seat covers. The matching door panels I'm sure would be pricey though.

Hmmm.... I got a quote from Tousley Ford for a Set of Saddle leather Seat Bottoms. I figured I'd buy a spare since the bottoms tend to wrinkle and crack before the rest. Both seat bottoms were gonne be $350 ...

The back seat is vinyl so should be cheaper than leather. Or is the Boss cloth?

cloth i think on teh boss. i guess my local ford palce was just f'n price gouging me. they wanted $1200 for the bottom section of the rear seat alone. I love my premium interior, but i like those seats if you can get the cloth rear upholstery, I am interested assumign there is a way to kill that dash light from the airbags my car has in the seats. i woudl assuem it a programming thing.

Edit: LOL, those seats are from the laguna seca model, which has no back seat! no upholstery to be had i guess other than the normal boss 302, which is pretty close:

so nice! But why does it say " These seats are un-released at this point. Once Ford Racing establishes the pricing & availability for these we will update this item. " Or should I say... where did you find the pricing?

Thats odd.. the price was on there when I first posted the thread. I do know that Ford is not releasing the seats until the Boss Laguna Seca is officially on sale.

Can you say "OOPS!"
Whoever that FoMoCo marketing or website admin guy is must be in some serious trouble for publishing that info prematurely.

Oh well, I guess the wait continues

I saw these Boss 302 seats in person at the Chicago Auto show last week. They are VERY nice. The seat I saw DID have airbags, not sure if you will be able to get them without. They also recline, the seat on display was a passenger seat, it had the same manual recline lever as the stock seats. I would say your not going to shed a whole lot of weight by switching to these seats if that's your main goal. I didn't get to sit in one of the display cars with the seats, the cars were locked up tight! But they are real sharp!
