Default Replace drivers seat?

My 2004 SE drivers seat is nowhere near as comfortable as the one in my wife'* 98 SSE. Does anyone know if I could get one to replace the one in my 04? In other words; would it fit without too much hassle? Also, did the 04'* have more than one style of bucket seats?

there isnt really much you can do, did you notice that the seatbelt is built into the seat??? good luck trying to find another like it. i think your going to find yourself stuck with it.

I love how my seats feel, i would only chane them so i could get leather.

also remember that you have a side airbag to deal with. You could look into either Aurora seats 2001-2003, or Bonneville seats 2003+ I believe... The Bonneville switched over to the Aurora'* seats in 03' I think.

Actually Gumball, the 2000-2003 are completely different than the 96-99 seats.

Well, I met this guy who does aircraft upholstery for a living and custom car and boat upholstery on the side. He said he can redesign the seat to fit my body exactly as I want it and do the whole interior in leather for around $1000. Thanks to all for the information and I willl tell you how it turns out after he does the job.

Although I loved my 02 ssei, the damn seat was so uncomfortable, I gave the car to my wife and put my 92 se back on the road. There ain't no comparison to the comfort of the two seats. The seat in the 02 is much smaller and supports less of your legs.
