Hello. Does anyone know if the front seats from a 2006 passat will fit a mk5 jetta? Are the mounting points the same for either vehicles? Thanks.

They are different. Junkyards can normally tell you if they're compatible too. Are you trying to add leather?

Thank you for that info. The mk5 seats are too narrow especially in the back area. The 2006 and newer passats have larger, more comfortable seats.

I understand the seat may not be comfortable for you. I am not an engineer, however from what I understand about cars and safety, the seat design is an integral part to a vehicles safety features. A safe design takes into account the seat designed specifically for that vehicle. Although another seat may physically fit the vehicle, other serious issue may come into play in the event of a crash.
