Dear Model X Owners, How Comfy Are 2nd/3rd Row Seats or Long Trips?

I had posted this in one of the owners' threads but wanted to open it up a bit in case other Sig owners care to chime in. I confirmed my X a few weeks ago, but am curious how comfortable the second and third row seats are for long trips. Since the middle row seats do not recline (the angle of seat bottom to seat back is fixed), is it possible for middle and rear passengers to comfortably nap back there? We do a fair amount of long distance driving in our current car (which has limited second/third row recline), and I'm hoping that the X is at least no worse than this in terms of long-term comfort on a road trip.

From the pics, it does look like the middle seats tilt slightly back, but as there is no hinge or break between seat back and seat bottom, it seems like recline is impossible. Is this correct?
