Default Bonne seat width?

Hey guys.. 'newb' here. I live in northern MN.. eastern ND. I don't currently own a Bonneville, but I've always been quite a fan. I'm a member of several Grand Prix clubs and forums. I own two of them right now. I was directed over here for a question I have..

Could any of you guys/gals tell me the width of the '92-'99 front seats? I'm toying with some ideas for one of my GP'*.. that info will make or break the project.. so we'll see. Thanks in advance!

Give us a generation and seat style.

87-91
92-99
00+

Buckets? With all the gizmo'*? (3 lumbar chambers and love handles, center console adjust or seat switch adjust)?

you really thinking about putting one of these big *** seats in a grand prix? I feel sorry for the ppl in the back of your car if you do put passengers in there. Leg room is kinda limited with the 92-99. small in the 87-91 and well the 00+ is small also

That was funny...heheheh....

So it'* limited across the board?

I can measure mine, I guess, if no one comes up with an answer before I do.

I thought we had pretty generous legroom. I don't mind sitting in the back of mine. Don't get the chance much, though. We could do a full measurement for him of the front seat edge to the back as well.

I was under the same impression. In fact my passengers have commented on the good legroom. My wife has the car right now, and won't be able to do a measurement until about 5pm CST. Can you get to it before then?

I normally drive with the seat back so I can have some leg room. When I do sit in my back seat, I have to spread my legs wide and that feel uncomfortable. But if a short person drive my car and I am in the back i can have all the legroom in the world. Now not trying to go of topic but in my friends 93 Olds 98, he can havr his seat all the way back and still,ppl in the back can stretch there legs.

I'd like the '92-'99 models.. preferably just the 6-way power. With center console. I don't feel like wiring up the tubing for the 45,000way power seats some of you guys have
But yeah, I'm contemplating putting them into a Prix.. it all depends on how wide they are. I already have a feeling they're too wide, but I want to make sure before I do anything dramatic. If someone goes out to measure, you should measure the track width too!

edit - your wink smilie looks like he has some kind of disease. like jaundice or something.
