I have driven my SEL non-stop from Tucson to Las Vegas,NV, a 450 mile trip. That trip was a tribute to the SEL's seats and incredible cruising range.
I'm not sure why you would think the SE sport seat was any less comfortable than the SEL seat, unless you have leather in your SEL, as the seat is identical except for the cut and pattern of the cloth between the SE with sport package and the SEL/Ti in 2012. Only the base S/SE had a different "comfort" seat frame as far as I am aware.
