I went through this process here is some info:
If you buy full seats~
First you want to stay with in the same year span ie 03-05 to 06+. The reason is the airbag system communicates with the car differently between the years. Also If you go back to 03 the passenger seat has some changes. The location of the seat belt bolt is different. Some have it bolted to the seat where some are bolted to the car.
What I would recommend is if you buy the full seats you want to then switch out your brackets to the new seats. That way you will not have to deal with reprogramming your car for airbags. I had to purchase a new bracket for my passenger seat and it runs about 700 for just the bracket since it has all the airbag weight sensors.
As for cost the seats uually are cheap. You should be able to find a good seat for 100-200 a piece. So for the entire car you are looking at 400-500 depending on condition and where you are at. I got my entire set for 360, but i have a hatch so the seats in the back were harder to find.
I have a set of 06 black leather seats I am selling. If you live near nor cal I will sell cheap. Let me know if you have any other questions I have had 3 different sets in my car working with airbags and dealing with it and then having the dealer set all airbags.
Looking back I should just have bought a leather kit or other material and reupholster my orignal seats but whats the fun in that and I wouldnt have this info to give.
If you can find cheap seats and just switch your brackets that would probably be your best bang for the buck.
