Your problem may be electrical compatibility over physical fit.
I looked at a couple of pics comparing the two, and the light bars in the lower half wouldn't match up.

I might have to blacklines now. Though I still think split armrest is my next upgrade. I also noticed the 2009 has the old single-piece armrest.
