But, maybe he's got a point that Audi should at least think about integrating the two. Not a bad idea, and they should be listening to the upper tier of customers (us) for feedback.
But then again, there are those unexplained, seemingly useless rubber feet attached underneath the armrest. Maybe it's like an appendix; a no longer used appendage from the past that will eventually disappear through evolution.

Maybe they are pre-cursors of the evolution of the C8 where the console will be swooped upward at the rear to accommodate a built-in armrest and the little feet will protect the fine grain ash.
Or, maybe there is an issue with the current armrest if it is pushed, using the technical terminology, "way the Hell down, past its design limit" and avoidable contact is initiated.

Another (hidden?) gem. If you press the the fan button after you turn the car off, the fan will continue to run to keep the warm or cool air circulating for a few minutes before shutting off.
