difference between 2002 and 320i rear bench seats?

A while back I bought what i thought was a nicely recovered rear bench for my 02, but it doesn't quite fit. I've heard that the rear bench from an e21 will come close to fit, but not quite; ie either the bottom can be bolted down and not the tops or the other way around. This is what I am experiencing.

i also just recently scored some bucket sets for the back, so now I want to sell the bench seat an want to make sure i describe it accurately. Any obvious ways to tell tel rear bench from an e21 and an 02?

the bottom is identical

the back rest is approx 2-3" wider at the top corners - doesn't fit without

serious pad trim reduction

a blind man pulling them out of a chicken coop would think the 320i

back seat is a 2002 seat

a sighted man would also make the same mistake
