While it's only been 10 days, I'd half to say many of their comments are accurate. While I love the car, the tech comes off as a bit more 'show than go'.
Compared to an A7 I tested, it's a lot less user friendly and much harder to use on the fly. I much prefer being able to have more of a sensory feeling
when trying to access controls at highway speeds, I know knobs and dials are so old school when it comes to control panels, they do serve a useful purpose.
It drives me crazy that the volume display comes up when I try and touch the lower set of icons. Hopefully a software update will bring some enhancements.

I don't have that problem. My ATS is about a month old. Maybe there is already an update! I also prefer the volume control on the steering wheel.
