    How does the seat comfort compare of the front model X seats to the model S, in particular for long road trips?

    We found that the model S front seats have a rather uncomfortable headrest, which is hard and somewhat round, which is not comfortable leaning back against.

    I notice this less when driving because I tend to lean forward a bit, but when sitting in the passenger front seat, and after a few hours of traveling, it really starts bugging me being bumped in the head by the hard headrest and it not cradling the head but instead the head rolling left and right on it.

    Anyone that undertook long road trips with the X that could compare the experience to the S?

    I have just been given a loaner Model S P90D while my Model X is being checked for possible sensor problems. I think the S seats are good but the X seats are outstanding.

    I have a 2015 MS P85DL and now the Sig X. The X is much much more comfy. They are spongy and probably too soft for a sport sedan but perfect for an SUV

    I cannot believe that Tesla is still having sensor issues. I had issues when the sensors first came out 2 years ago!

    New sensors, specifically the huge array of aluminum-penetrating ultrasonic sensors in the Falcon Wing doors.

    What kind of cup holder does the Model X have?

    I didn't know they had sensors in the seat?
