This is an interesting topic. I just gave a couple friends a ride to the grocery store (and liquer store) and the one who used to own a 1995 SLE complimented me on the comfort of the seats in my 1998. He was always complaining about the lumbar support in his 1995 SLE and my old 1994 SLE. I too have noticed how the seats (Same 6-way leather buckets as my 1994) in my 1998 don't make me feel uncomfortable in the first 100 miles of a trip like my 1994'* did. I won't compare the seats in my 1999
because they were the 12-ways.
I hooked a battery up in my 1997 SSE to test the functions of the 12-way seats before I pulled them out and found them to be very comfortable.
Can't wait to finish the swap (got the seats in the basemount here at the house and am going to spend tomorrow cleaning and conditioning them.
Hopefully I can get the wiring harness out of the car (it'* all integrated with the rest of the dash harness before it goes back into the seat controls in the center console
) and installed in the 1998 next weekend or the following one (given I can get in a heated garage).
