Replace seats in A500C with seats from F500

Hi, just picked up my (used) A500C yesterday and already loving it (replaced my old F500 which did 242.000 km and is still going).

I would like to replace the seats (cloth) with seats (leather front and back) from a F500.

Is this possible (are they using the same frame and wires for airbags)?

I replaced the seats out of my pop with a set of Abarth seats and they were just a straight swap, the whole seat and frame so I would think you should be Ok.

I would keep the sports seats, they're designed to hold you in place better than standard seats when you're having some abarth cornering fun.

The more flat standard seats especially nice slide about leather will seriously dull the fun of having an abarth

I've swapped over lots of seats, they are all the same in my experience. Don't forget to unplug the negative battery terminal before you unplug the airbags.
