As far as I am aware seats from 2010-current will all fit just fine. Now obviously if yours is a standard seat and you put power seats in........Some wiring is required.

If your going from power to standard, you'll have some connectors left over.

That was my next thought, does the Rspec even have the connectors to attach a power seat? Like are there some capped off connectors or is there absolutely no wiring at all?

The R-spec has base seats to save weight.....or money, not sure.............I like to tell myself weight

The only connector they will have will be the airbag connectors

Swapping seats can be addictive. I swapped out my black cloth base seats for red leather r-spec seats front and back. Now I want to get my hands on tan leather seats from the 3.8 red car, tan seats? Yes please

I almost prefer cloth seats better because in Arizona your car gets 150+ degrees, cloth is not as painful as leather lol

As far as changing the leather it might be cheaper to go and have them aposterd exactly how you want...

Just an idea.

Hit up Katzkin or a co like them (but they r f*ing awesome and top quality) to get a set of their seat covers. Made from exact seats ur looking for where u take ur seat apart and pull off the fabric and then use their covers. I'll need the hog rings and pliers to put em on but they fit just like stock. They rnt cheap pullover seat covers they r the real deal like an upholstery shop would make them for u. Using them u can design absolutely every part of the cover from fabric, stitching color and design, piping, embroidery- if u want a name or club stitched in em, and even each insert in seat outside dif color/ material than inside and which panel due wand dif if at all. Amazing co and customer service. I don't think they sell to private customer tho so ur have to find a distributed but they give u a list in ur area of who to talk to. C they r awesome. Google em for pics

Air Conditioned seats?

I have a 2015 Ultimate.

My wife has a 2017 Sonata Hybrid. I really like the ventilated seats.

Are Velocitor or Stinger seats ventilated and do they fit?
