I can't believe that anyone criticizes these seats. To each his own, but I think that these are TRULY the most comfortable seats I've ever sat in in a car. My only beef is that the shifter is so far forward that I rarely recline fully into the seat. I always find myself leaning forward to get the right shifter-to-body relationship. Any further forward with the seat, and my knee hits the steering wheel when I clutch.
Don't laugh. My Bullitt came with a GT passenger seat!! I thought it was kind of cool. I originally thought that the driver had a more sporting seat. Then my salesman told me it came in with the wrong seat. I drove it around like that for a couple of weeks until the correct seat could be put in. My poor passengers were sliding all over the place :smile:
In reference to the seating position of the Bullitt, I've got my seat pulled all the way back and reclined a good deal and my knees are still on both sides of the steering wheel. I'm 6'2" and I think it's humorous that the '93 Prelude I drove before my Bullitt would actually allow me to move my seat back too far and it was a smaller car. As to the comfort of the Bullitt seats - I love them. They're head and shoulders above the GT's and I think they do a very good job keeping my back and shoulders in place. I do wish they were a bit firmer/stiffer in the lower side bolsters. But, I think the best Ford seats I've ever sat in are those in the '01 Lightnings. I absolutely love those seats. Maybe one day...
