Question 1st/2nd Gen Headrests Interchangeable?

My wife hates the donut hole headrests. Her head falls in the hole. My head never touches the headrest so I don't understand the problem but apparently iiiiiitttts a problem. I think only first generation came with full headrests. I see some on ebay but not sure if they will fit. Even if the distance between the poles are equal, I wonder if the mechanisms are the same. If anybody has both a first and second, I wouldn't mind you looking at the poles and measuring, but please don't try it. I wouldn't want you to jam one in by mistake.

I just measured the mounting posts in my 2010 and my wife's 2005 and they are the same diameter and the same distance apart.I didnt swap the headrests but based on the measurements I would say they are the same.

Thanks SCBlue PT,
Eventually I want to get leather seats and maybe my donut headrests can be converted. I thought maybe an upholster could fill the center with foam and cover the whole piece in leather. One upholster said he wouldn't do it because it would change the safety standard and didn't want to get sued if something happened. I couldn't imagine how that would make a difference.

Big thank you SCBlue. I purchased the headrests off of ebay and they fit. I got a pair for about 40 bucks total with shipping and they look and feel great.
