So I have an 03, pewter, with heated seats.

Anyway, the paint is flaking right below the fan controls. I was tossing around the idea of getting a new one. Maybe a black one, if I do the woodgrain.

I looked up the part numbers.



on gmpartsdirect.com:
$425 for '03 2nd design. Im assuming thats the black one.
$250 for '04, definantly black.

Such a huge price difference leads me to believe there is a more then just a color difference between the years. But if so, what is it, and will an 04 control unit not work in my 03?

I answered this in the other thread, but just to close this one out: the main difference between 03 and 04 is just software. If you can get the dealer to flash 03 software into an 04 part, you'll be fine. Otherwise, you can just get an 04 part and swap the faceplate (painted) portion.

Also, if you are still under warranty, the dealer should replace a part that has peeling paint.
