another headrest question
I've read the other threads about headrests, and I don't think this was addressed, so here goes:
Aside from them becoming "active" headrests in 2009, I believe, has the headrest shape changed over time? I'm buying a 2012 (deposit down today) knowing that the headrests don't work for me or my husband. (I'm in that minority that likes to sit straight up and feel like the headrest pushes my head forward and makes me look down at the steering wheel.)
(Why am I buying the car anyway? Because I found that all cars had some level of this pushing my head. It varied, but I figured if I was going to have to buy a replacement headrest, I might as well get the car I wanted.) I've flipped it around, which does take the angle away but I prefer to have the back of my head grazing my headrest while I drive, so it feels too far away.
I'm confused as to whether trying to get an older RAV4 headrest will solve my issue or if I need to find something else entirely. From what I've gathered here, it sounds like the following have been switched successfully:
2009 Lexus RX350
Also, while I'm in purchasing mode, are the low profile headrests from pre-2011 straight (they look that way in pictures, but I haven't seen them in person), or do they tend to bend forward as well?
And if anyone wants any brand new headrests (that "everyone else" seems to love) and wants to sell me theirs or trade for mine, I'd be happy to pay shipping for both! The car I'm getting has a gray/ash interior, but at this point I'd buy seat covers as well to be able to drive the car in comfort. (Who knew I'd be doing this with a NEW car?!?)
Thanks for any advice or leads!!!!
