CONS: Knobs and buttons replaced by touchscreen inputs promises some frustration.

This seems to be a trend with most touchscreen systems. I think its personal preference.. Having it all in the touchscreen allows for a cleaner looking center console but no tactile feedback and I guess some people prefer a button. But if you make too many buttons people will complain.

Manufacturers need to figure out which functions are important and make those buttons and make everything else within the touchscreen.

Well that's just the thing--I think the balance is there. The Q50 still kept a lot of the basic functions on buttons and knobs and have used the touchscreen primarily for navigation, menus, options, and apps. I think getting rid of all buttons similar to the new MKZ or the Model S is probably going to be a lot harder to embrace than something that combines the two.
