    maybe I missed an existing thread, but I was surprised that I did not find much on this topic after browsing through a few searches here.

    I can't compare them to a Model S's seats, but I find them VERY comfortable!

    yes. though I'd seen that thread, I didn't see much of anything in there. the main thing I'm curious about is how the X seats compare to the next gen Model S seats.

    (sorry mods, somehow late at night, when I saw the other thread with almost no responses, it mistakenly seemed to me that posting on it would be futile).

    Full disclosure that I am a fan of the original MS seats and not a fan of the next-gen MS seat. That being said, I find the MX seats more comfortable and more supportive than both. I have not done any multi-hour trips yet (this weekend will be the first), but if I could retro-fit the MX seats into the MS I would think about it.

    I have done a fairly long trip (northern NJ to Richmond, VA) and the MX seats are amazing. I've driven both original and next gen MS seats, although not on any long trips, and there is no comparison. The MX seats are much more comfortable.

    I've had all 3: original performance seats, next gen, and the X. X>NG>performance.

    I have original seats in my P85 and I like them better than the NG seats, but the seats in the X are better than both by a large margin.
