Seat Question .... '05 versus '03 passenger

I know BMW changed the seat on the '05 LT (and made it horrible for us tall guys) but did they also change the passenger section. More specifically .... would a pre-2005 passenger seat fit a 2005 LT?

As Always thanks in advance

Ed, I'm using the front section of the 2003 seat... Its a little flatter but more importantly its wider! Works great for me at 6'4"..............Regards Pete

The passenger seat was not changed from pre-05 to 05. You can run any combination of pre-05 and 05 front and rear seats on an 05 LT with no issues. I've done it.
