To be clear, you can piece together a seat from the Ford Parts bin via a dealer and it will be stupid expensive. They haven't sold complete Recaro seats and I don't believe that has changed. Ford Performance has offered their version and that can be purchased as a complete seat.
Thanks so much. Am actually talking with a dealer about a pair and he is asking for $2800 I think I will consider it. Since all the prices are see people posting here are from 3k upward.

Also, Epiphany told you the cost of Mustang because that is what you asked in your original post. 🙃
Yeah I got him it was a mistake on my part. Was instead inquiring about the cost of the seat

why not look at Braum or any of hte 3 or 4 other manufacturers? Fraction of the cost. There are at least 4 different Recaro molds in the Mustang. GT350, GT350R, Bullitt/PP2, cloth GT/EB. The Bullitt is broad and wide - my fatass 250+lb 6' fits fine, maybe even a tad loose. The cloth GT/EB is tight in the rib cage. The GT350 are progressively tighter and also have increased leg support.

Hello , I have a 2019 gt and was thinking of switching the seat to a recaro seat. What is your opinion on that and what is the approximate cost of a mustang. Thanks
Only if you're slender and like to race on a road course. Otherwise, they're just good looking.

Well said, Tony but if I may, I'd say the buyer/wearer/seat sitter only needs two of those qualities. I'm thin and 5'9" so they "fit" me very well but I'm not a track type.

Now, would I enjoy a thousand mile road trip in them? Probably not. :-) Fun as it might sound, I don't think the car would do well in a Cannonball Run type event because you'd spend more time fueling than driving. :-)

The Recaro are not race seats but rather seats designed to make the uninformed crowd believe that you are a racer….
A race seat without a crotch opening for a 5/6 pts harness ??? Sure …..
That said, they do look good

I’m 6’1”, 235. Pretty good shape so not fat in the middle but not skinny. Lol. If I were any wider, don’t think they would work for me. But at my size now, I find them very comfy. I don’t slide in the seat at all but like I said, there ain’t no gaps between me and the seat anywhere. To include my big ass legs.

Did in my 2018 and regretted it. Horribly uncomfortable in the ribs after the first 15 mins or so of driving. Ordered the Mach 1 without them.

I have them in my 21’ PP1 and love them. They hold you snug and have amazing leg support.
