    So as you all already know, my 2005 RR X was totaled a few weeks ago. Last week I just purchased a 2012 black X and even though it's newer and has some nice upgrades, I still miss my '05.

    Is it just me or do the seats in the 2012 X's sit higher than other years? It feels like I'm driving a truck now instead of a sports car and I'm not digging it. I would love to swap seats with an older model.

    Does anyone know if the newer model seats actually sit higher in the truck? I really can't stand it and am hoping to find someone who wants to swap seats with me who has a 2005-2008.

    Don't the newer seats have airbags in them (driver's side)?

    Ugh! I'm regretting my purchase of this truck more and more each day. I should've held out and looked a little longer for an '05-'08 in excellent condition rather than this piece. I miss my '05 so much!
