Default Caddy seats in a Bonneville

My wife loves her 2003 Bonneville but hates the seats. Is there any reason that the front seats from a 99 Seville won't bolt in fairly easily?

My experience with Cadillac in the 1996-2004 is that Cadillac does most of interior wiring, switches, etc different from other GM vehicles. I am guessing even if the mounts lined up, the electrical seat controls would not, you would likely have to custom wire it and no guarantee of success. You might be better off trying to find GXP seats. You don't mention the style of Bonneville you have. I have the 2001 SSEi seats and find them to be super comfortable.

you wont be able to use the actual seat power motor assembly without some modification, but you should be able to use the seat cushions the will bolt up to the same holes just remeber the saets usually have the controls on the side so there will be a hole on the side where the controls will be

Default Thanks all

Thanks for the input everyone. I think I will have my wife sit in some more Bonneville seats before doing amything drastic. Sounds like they made quite a variety of them.
