If so, I'm curious as to how they are they planning on lengthening one without shortening the other.
Well, if I recall there is a bit of room behind the rear seat where they could probably gain an inch or two if they extended the seat pan rearward. Sounds like too much of a PITA for them to do though. I suspect the only thing they did was reduce the overlap of the rear seat and reshape the foam of the front a bit.
