Well, I have exactly the same. At the end my garage recommended me a saab tuner. Their saddler has changed two things: first he has modified the lower part of the neck rest to prevent the neckrest will break the neck in a collision. Second he has upholstered the seat back 15 - 20 mm. This enhances the distance of the neck sufficient. The functionality of the airbag is not affected by this. Expensive, but it works. I'm still not able to drive 700 km per day with this car as I could with my 9000 before. Maybe saab optimizes the seats only for collisions and has forgotten to optimize for long distance driving without tiredness.
