Fronts will for sure, I think only half the backs will fit, I can't remember if it's the top or bottom. I think it's the top.

Yes they are interchangeable. Convertible back seats are different and they aren't interchangeable.

I liked the 2 door seats in my 4 door, it allowed for more flexibility.... (xxx) hahahaha

Also tilting them forward if you have the windows open, or no tint.... keeps the sun off them.

Performance one step at a time.

I have 2dr front sport seats in my sedan.

For the rears the only difference is the lower half, coupes are a little more squared off, whereas the sedans are more rounded on the edge so passengers can get in. You probably won't noticed a difference.

Also, let it be noted for future references, that coupe front seats fit into convertibles, but the rear passenger sliding handle (that flips the seat forward) needs to be modified if you are tall. That handle sits higher on the couples, and the metal inside the handle needs to be cut down and ground down so that the cabrio handle will slide over it.
