    That seems like a super subtle change.

    It’s like one of those video games at a bar where you have to figure out the difference between two identical photos.

    I’m not seeing it and am about to lose my quarter.

    Side bolsters are much better on version 2.

    Very obvious improvement

    Probably supplier issues, so they used their next one lined up.

    We might be on the 3rd Gen as the original seats for the July deliveries were reportedly replaced.

    I believe they make their own seats in house.

    Not to mention that the new angled stripes are well above horizontal seam whereas on the old seat they were at the same level;)

    I have the new seats on 199xx

    Do the old seats have a textile / cloth bit on the inside facing the center console ?
