I need to replace my seat and I am wondering if stock seat from an 08 is the same as my 03. Can anyone confirm this for me?

I had an 02 and now an 08. The seats appear identical and the Butt-O-Meter concurs.:thumbup:

When Tom Simmmons did my seat he said he had a loaner for me while I was there and all he knew was I was on a GL1800. Somebody said on here that the 2012 seat is different, but if I remember right they said all the other's were the same.

No the 2000 is completely different and is for the GL1500. The GL1800 started in 2001. The 2001-2010 are the same with the exception of a side weave on the anniverary 2005 yellow and silver models. The 2012 is different

In '05 the side panel fabric on the non-seating areas changed to carbon-fiber look stuff. Much more sexy than the previous plain old naugahyde seats. I think they were running out of naugas.

OK your title says 2000 to 2008- The answer as already given is no, the 2000 is different than all 1800's. I will assume that was a typo!
You post then asks if a 2008 seat will fit a 2003 bike. The answer, again already given, is yes.
I know the seat cover is different on the 2012's. Does anyone know for sure it will or will no fit on other 1800's and vice versa? I know of nothing that changed on the frame so,.................................

Have a friend who just purchased a 2012. His old Diamond seat from a previous model, would not fit the new 2012.

Great picture comparison. Now I can see the sloping angle from the bottom of the 2012 where the side covers are.
