    We put them both in our BMW330 last weekend and estimated in that car there was a 2-3" difference (now I can't guarantee the install angle was identical.) It was enough to make my husband say the BLVD 70 was a perfect fit. So, at least in that one car it was a very noticeable difference. (DH is 6'4" so it's a big deal to be able to have the seat all of the way back.) This was with the head restraint flush.
