For now, leave it until I find a center counsole I like. Just something to feel the gap and get some more cup holders in there. I might just take it to a interior shop and see if they can install armrests on the side as well.

Yea, my bench right now has the center **** that spins 360* then a few other buttons for something else, but my passenger side only has manual slide and recline, so I will just find some buckets exactly like that.

Are the controls of the leather seats in the front of the seat or the side of the seat? And does it matter if its different then mine?

The controls for the non-sport sears are in the front (at least they were in 93). It is the one on the right in the following pic. AL7 seat on the left:

I was wondering... if you have a bench seat now, do you have the inner mounting studs in the floor? I went from bench to buckets in a 90 Chevy pick up and had to drill through the floor to add bolts for the inner mounting points. The seat frame of the bench went all the way across. I'm unfamiliar with how the bench seat frames are in the Bonnevilles.

Also, the OEM console bolts to the floor and to the floor shifter. You might need the studs that snap into key holes under the carpet. There is a chance I have some from the parts car but I'd have to sort through all of the hardware. If you need them, let me know.

I have no idea where the mounting studs are at. I was under the impression from reading old topics that these seats just bolt up, since all 92-99 bonne'* are the same. I dont need all the options for these seats at all. All I want to do is get a set of leather seats, drivers side will be the style like the one on the right in the photo (which I have those same controls but they are on the side of my seat), then passenger will just be basic manual recline and tilt. The back seat I dont have any worries about since its pretty basic anyways.

They very well could have the inner mounting studs already in use with the bench frame. I just have never had the pleasure of disassembling one.

Here'* the electrical connectors under the seat. The one on the left is just power and ground. You should already have the matching connector coming up from the carpet. The other connector on the right goes to the seat motors that are mounted to the track. The seat in the pic is not mounted to the track and is the reason that it is not connected to anything:

I believe that the 93 seats have the controls mounted on the front, and the 94+ have the controls mounted on the side. It dosent matter where the controls are they work the same

I got a guy from Stoytown looking into this for me right now. 95 gray leather seats, from an SE model....most likely it will be with the controls on the seat, unless its a bench leather

Nope, none of the console bolts are there.
