There is another post where someone has been unable to get media to play through their USB-C connections. You don’t think they’ve replaced the front connectors so they are just charging points as they are in the rear? That would mean the only media access is via wireless apple car play or Bluetooth. Bit of a problem for Android users if that’s the case.

If Porsche are selling slightly crippled cars I think I may be refusing to accept mine.

It’s well known amongst motorcyclists that certain iterations of bike are better than similar versions of the same model that preceded or followed
With cars we have become accustomed to later models being better, but that’s no longer true.
‘Green policies’ & cost cutting by manufacturers has meant that newer does not always mean better.
The topic fills page after page of Internet forums with passionate debate on the issue , this thread is another one.
