Icon5 Need Opinions.....Possible Purchase

Here's the scoop...

I can potentially purchase tan leather seats from a wrecked Mountaineer, along with a center console. The purchase includes front AND rear seats (which I'd sell), and center console. The center console is the same one Rwenzing has with the fuel mileage screen and stuff, and to be honest, I don't feel like wiring much of anything, as I am not electrically savvy. I really want the 'other' center console without the fuel mileage estimator, the one that has the pockets or w/e to keep stuff. So should I go through with this deal? I can always sell/trade the console for another, and the seats themselves just need a good cleaning. He wants $25 deposit via paypal and $150 cash next Saturday in person. So in all $175 for need-to-be-cleaned front seats, a center console, and looks-to-be-clean rear seats.

By the way, I'm doing this because my drivers seat wont recline, I broke it last summer while doing uh, well, you know....lol.

Okay....before I send the $25 deposit via paypal, can you guys answer some of these questions.

I've read the seats are a direct swap, but I just want to confirm that they will fit nicely and I'll be able to wire them for the power seat option?

Will it look goofy with a MOUNTAINEER stitched on the seat? Or will it be one of those things overlooked?

And how much do you think I could get for the rear seats?

I know you have to swap the seatbelt pre tentionors or whatever from your seats to the new ones. Basically the part that tightens the seat belts when you get into an accident.

I think the mountaineer stitching would look goofy but I can't weigh in on the rest... then again this is coming from the girl w/ mustang logos on her truck and wants to badge it as a QX56... lol
