Passat estate TDI 00 - swapping out rear seat with later model

I have a Passat estate TDI 2000. The rear seat, which splits in two and folds down, has a lap belt in the middle. I want to have a standard seat belt in the middle rather than the lap belt.

My understanding is that from 2003/2004 the passat came with a middle standard shoulder belt which is built into the rear seat. Can someone confirm the year please.

So my question - is the width of the seats the same in the 00 model and the updated seat belt model? I am hoping the answer is yes :) That would I can pick a seat up from scrap and swop them out. If yes, are the seat retainers different? I'll need to install the new retainers if they are.
