GP 1 seats to R59 roadster

I am Looking at buying a roadster, but I am not liking any of the oem seat options

I Loved the original GP 1 style seats I had in my r53
(Recaro 2tone grey as also fitted to some convertibles)

Has anyone considerd fitting these into a roadster,
Will the r53 runners suit a r56, are the electronic elements compatible ?
I.e. Heating and airbags,

The jcw recaro sporsters/cs are perhaps a nicer option but still look very expensive to achieve, even second hand

Need to make these fit into the car and also Upgrade to heated spec in an standard car, i.e. It hasn't the heated seat buttons option or other supporting kit to operate these as it left the factory

The Lotus logos were Not a deal breaker
