Gen 3 seats in a gen 2 brackets?

I came across a pretty good deal on some gen 3 seats and have heard good and bad but have only seen pictures of them and never in person. I was curious as to what is needed?

one of the things I have heard is they look out of place, as they are a bit large and may rub the doors when installed, ruining the bolsters? If there are any other pics that may be worth posting please do so. I would greatly appreciate it!

The main reason why I am considering this is, they are all black with a blue lettering and inserts to match my 96. Thoughts/concerns????

My Gen 2 had Gen 3 seats when I bought it and I barely fit. In my opinion they are a bit too wide and the seat bottoms a bit too long for the car. I am 6'1" and about 210. I put Gen 2 seats back in and I fit the car much better. The Gen 3's were more comfortable though. Good luck.
