Using the online part database will reveal which parts are used in which BMW models. Any thing can be made to fit with the right amount of money, skill, and talent...but if you're looking for looks like the seat rails are different between the e53 & e65 based on the part database.

For instance, the front seat rails from the e65 745i are used in the list of BMW models at this link:

Get the entire interior swapped. It'll be better quality.
