Question E63 AMG seats

Hi everyone! I am looking to purchase a 2012 E63 AMG wagon. Yaay!!
My problem is I am a big guy, not fat but big, and find the AMG seats to be uncomfortable. I asked the techs at my MB dealership if those seats could be swapped out for something less confining. They said yes, but only if the replacement seats had the active-contour function. I sat in an E350 with those seats and found them perfectly acceptable, being much less "sporty" than the AMG seats. Since E63's are rather thin on the ground around here, and I know the wagon is special order only, can anyone tell me if the seat swap is possible and/or are the active-contour seats in the AMG model in fact the same as the ones in the E350? I loathe the idea of modifying such an investment grade automobile unless I absolutely have to. It will be a fun car, so not used daily. Wife demanded utility, so that ruled out a 911. Daily driver is a 2011 GL550. Any and all answers are welcomed and I thank you in advance!
