Well that explains everything. I guess your motto is "hair tricks over passengers." Btw you can get good seats at the yard for $150-200. Plenty of G4's.

Yes, it's the same for the 2000 - 2003 models, other than the seat design.

Seat fabric was changed for the 2003 model year. 2000-2 have the same. 2003-2007 have the same fabric. 2004 added the additional safety/airbag stuff in the front outboard seats.

All 2000-2007 seats will fit.
They'll just be that different pattern.

Since you're getting new seats, take the opportunity to get leather seats all around.

OK, so any seats from 2000+ will work with my mounting holes and electrical connectors the ONLY difference is the material or pattern? Sorry for making this so difficult i just dont know otherwise and dont want to spend close to $100 on all new seats to find out i cant use them.
