      S60r interior, p2 to P3 swap?

      Just posting as a curiosity, as I am considering getting into a R, and looking at a few with horrific interiors.

      Has anyone ever tried swapping the seats, front or back to the P3 variety, and is it even possible? Are the mounts The same and would it cause immense electrical headaches?

      The guy in this YouTube video looks like he has it done in his V70R:

      The front P3 seats can be swapped into the 05+ P2 - done it! You need to swap the foam and skins and do some minor wiring for the seat heaters. Frames are nearly identical. But, the wiring connector is slightly different.

      My P3 seats are from a 2017 V60.

      That video was Chris' V70r, there is a thread on it around here somewhere.

      The front seats can be made to match the back pretty well if they are a similar color.

      Beechwood matches Atacama pretty well.

      Yeah - that's Chris' (one of the swedespeed founders) old car, sold to Marty.
      I saw it in person at carlisle and it was damn nice. Only weird thing is the back seats then don't match.

      Just fold the rear seats down. Problem solved!
