Stock seat swap to premium leather seats

I recently purchased a 2017 Mustang GT PP base model and came across some premium leather seats for a cheap price. If I were to buy the seats, I am wondering if this would be a complete form, fit and function replacement, minus the heating and cooling feature in the premium seats. I would presume the connector(s) and wiring would be the same, but minus the premium heating and cooling control wires.

Also, assuming everything is OK to replace, I am wondering if there would be a way to utilize the heating and cooling via a new display module. I was interested in replacing the 4.2" display in the base model with some type of aftermarket 8" display. I have currently been looking at: Mustangnav001 - Moddiction Mustang Navigation kit - Moddiction, https://www.infotainment.com/collect...gation-upgrade

I thought I would stop by and see if anyone else has had some similar experience with this sort of thing.


Thanks,
Alex

literally sounds like you should of just bought a Premium....I'd imagine the seats would bolt right in the only issue being the connections to power.

Premium w/PP was around ~8k more than the deal I could get on the base model w/PP. I love the car I bought but I wouldn't mind spending a grand or so for some nice to haves if I can find good deals. Yes, I am concerned about the wiring; I would imagine it's the same connector but with extra pins for the heating and cooling stuff. I am not exactly sure how to verify that though...maybe there is some type of non-proprietary schematic that the public is allowed to look at?

trial and error. buy the seats and if they fit great, if not, sell them to someone else. I can't imagine they're in high demand considering these cars are only 3 years old.

actually I just had a brain blast. Go to the local dealer they may let you look at their manuals. I did that for my Trans AM about 3 years ago they let me have access to all the GM/Pontiac manuals they had.

That link is to add GPS navigation to an existing 8-Inch screen. If you want to change the screen from 4 to 8 it's like 2000 from that person. I've been trying to find info on swapping some things from a premium version to the base model with pp but haven't found any info on it.
