The order guide that was posted awhile ago said that wireless Apple CarPlay would be standard.

Thank you for pointing that out, I had completely overlooked that it said Wireless CarPlay. That just made my day, as I won't have to take the phone out of my pocket for short trips now.

Did you vote on my poll? I’d love a e-Tron TT, or A4/RS4 e-Tron Avant. But, at this point, i think i am waiting for the e-Tron GT.

Heartily second this list.

If my understanding of how it functions is correct, one pushes the tab on the center armrest towards the front of the vehicle to put the transmission into reverse and pushes the tab towards the rear of the vehicle to put the transmission into "drive." To me, this is counter-intuitive and an accident waiting to happen. I should prefer the opposite: pushing the tab toward the front of the vehicle to go forward and pushing (or pulling the tab, if you prefer) towards the rear of the vehicle to go backwards. I wonder how many parking attendants will find themselves suddenly and without warning traveling in the direction opposite to the one they intended?

Is anyone aware of an international standard regarding this type of "gear shift" as there is for the "P R N D" pattern?

That's how the non-electric Audi gearshifts work (forward for reverse, and back for drive), and I've heard the same criticism about them. The biggest adjustment for me was not pushing the gearshift all the way forward for park, but I adjusted to the new pattern in about a week. Not really a problem for owners, but I get the concern about valet.

Thank you for this information. I will be a first time Audi owner when my e-tron quattro is delivered and to this date I still have not driven an Audi. Except for a 1961 Corvette with two-speed PowerGlide (one speed forward and one speed for reverse), if I remember correctly all of my cars over the years have had the standard P R N D pattern. I did not know that Audi uses a different pattern.

I believe BMW uses the same new pattern as well, where it uses a button for park, and R is forward from neutral, while D is backwards from neutral.

It just goes to show how behind the times I am. All my vehicles have had the old-fashioned mechanical shift lever with the P R N D pattern. The e-ton will be my first vehicle with an electronic gear changer. I might even be tempted to trade-in my flip phone for a smart phone. Well, maybe not.
