the T series leather came in aubergine, warm charcoal, red/black, blue/black. Better to go aftermarket, the leather ford use isn't that good quality and will cost you quite a bit to buy from them.

Alternatively, get your own seats retrimmed and add bolsters to the side to make it more 'bucket scooped' if u want.

thats not my point at all.. (besides, most looks worn and shiny after 5 years, especially the grey)
My point is, for the price ford charge for their "leather" seats (only partial leather, bout half of its vinyl) you could get aftermarket REAL quality leather.

Yes an Aftermarket job, is so much better than that of Factory.

A full job = re-padded + seats + door trims + other bits and pieces = ~$3k

Smaller job = seats + door trims = ~$2.5k

As Fuzion said get your current seats rebolstered and trimmed and if you do it go the whole hog and get all the bits and pieces done.
