The ISx50 rear seat bottom is 1 piece, on the IS F that middle piece is separate, you could buy it and see about trying to fit it to yours. If not you'd probably have to buy the IS F cushion (1 piece), the center piece and both side leather pieces. Or get one out of a junkyard.

I already tell people when driving that 4 is max in my car because of scraping. This would just make it concrete, there are only 4 seatbelts, therefore there will be no fifth person.

Actually I only want the FRONT SEATS.

I'm not interested in converting anything on my IS 250. I sat in an IS-F and the seat didn't hurt my back like the ones in my 250 do.

And driving over 30k/year is a big deal for seat comfort.

A member PMd me about having just a driver side seat available and I need to find out what he wants for it, I guess. I'd rather just try and find a set but may be relegated to this option.

I have no need for an IS-F. I already own a Ferrari 355 F1 Spider and my IS is the best option for my DD, since I usually only keep DDs 2-3yrs since I drive so much for work. I would like to have a nicer car for a DD but it just doesn't make financial sense.

Whoa, I must be tripping out. I swore that JDKane was the OP and I replied to his original thread heh. Did they merge the thread or something?

Yeah threads got merged. Not sure why.

One was about IS F front seats in an ISx50 and the other was about removing the middle rear seat by using the IS F rear console box.

Yes they were merged, since they were both basically asking the same thing. Yes, one was for rear, but 355F1 didn't specify. Either way, it's ultimately the same topic of whether IS-F seats fit in IS sedan, and how to obtain the parts.

Merging them makes it easier for reference/searching in the future.

Individual, I edited your posts to reference JDKane, not 355F1 who is the new OP due to the way I merged the threads.

I did the complete interior swap with a 2008 ISF on my 2008 IS350 and had no issues at all. They are definitely a great upgrade and they look better than the stock tan I had.
