Changing seats

I am vaguely considering changing seats, when I get the re trim done. Maybe something aftermarket like Sparco or from another car such as the GT. Question is: what do you do about the airbag & SRS stuff that is wired to the seats and causes major problems relating to throttle, engine mgmt etc when played with?

i wanna change mine as well, im thinking of recaro srd/sr5/speed or Pole Position.
I also have that question about the oem belt pretensioner. I think most cars use the rear seat belts and put a resistor on the airbag but i dont quite understand why you cannot just bolt the pretensioner to the seat when they are designed to do so.. like the ABE version of the Pole Position is designed with the standard 3 point oem in mind.

Here is an example where they use the oem pretensioner on the seat with just a bolt.
