Re: Will 2002+ GTI seats fit without a problem in a 2000 Jetta??? (DriversWanted)
Katzkin, who is THE name in quality reskins has 2 p/n's and 2 templates for the GTI rears and the Jetta rears respectively.
It's clear when you see the templates, that the Jetta seats are wider in the back. Just a little, but 1" too little fabric reskinning a Jetta rear w/GTI skins will stop the project.
...and Katzkin uses OEM components to make their kits. If someone has made it work, do tell. But "Yes it will..." doesn't hold up well w/the information I've seen.
*PS, I have some sweet GTI interior stuff to sell...see below.

not sure about a 2002 GTI but I swapped 2001 Jetta leather in my 03' golf and the airbag plug was different, and the passenger seatbelt plug had to be swapped, but it can be done. I am not sure about a 2000-2002 swap, I can only offer the info about my swap.
