Alcantara interior

Hi guys just got a quick question what are the visual difference between lci and pre lci alcantara interior I can't seem to see any difference also do you think a pre lci interior would fit a lci and vice versa.

Garage List
Both the same though the connectors for the airbags underneath may be different....

I'm the expert on this..... If you're talking about the e92's - the interiors changed before the lci was introduced (late 2008 but not on all builds)!

The only difference is that the new front seats have active head restraints, so have an extra wire connection to the cars wiring loom!

So if you have a car with this connection, you need the same seats with these headrests, if you don't you'll get an airbag warning light on the dash!

But you can install these newer seats in older cars, the headrest just won't work when in a crash!

A way to tell if you have these never seats.... the headrests can not be removed!
