Default Are WRX seats the same as 2.5rs seats?

I've done multiple searches but I am finding conflicting answers in the older threads so I thought I would ask here. I am looking to do a seat swap in my '93 Legacy. I think that the '02/'03 WRX seats are the best seats I have ever sat on in my life. However, I don't really need those side airbags in my Legacy. So what I'm wondering is this: Are the 2.5rs seats the same as the WRX seats? Some threads have said that they are different. (Shape, support, etc.) And some have said that they are the same, just different fabric and no airbags for the 2.5rs. If that's the case then the 2.5rs seats will be great for me. Also, did the WRX and 2.5rs seats change for '04/'05? I think I remember reading somewhere that they are different than '02/'03 but are they still as comfortable and supportive? (Of course everybody's body type is different so comfortable is a subjective term.) Thank you for any help you folks can give me and if anybody in the Portland, OR area has some of the above mentioned seats for sale please feel free to let me know.

I can only tell you for sure that 02 WRX and RS seats are the same except for the fabric/color. My 02 RS seats are black and grey, the WRX seats have some blue in them. I'm 99% sure this applies for the 03 models as well, except the 03 WRX had the side airbag option. The 04 model changed to a fixed headrest, and some have said that they aren't as supportive as the 02/03 seats. Like you said, I'm sure that's subjective.
