I would say a lot of the wish list items are for the true 2.0. However, if we stay with the theme of the refresh, in my view, they have exceeded expectations with some significant rework to meet some key competitive or own shortcomings with Range/Efficiency (with major electrical systems simplification), faster Charging at lower temps, but questionable in the look to me Aero improvements. This is the graphic of where they spend the funds for the improvements clearly supporting those priorities. Also, they are offsetting Route Planning to the cloud to achieve 3x the speed using the same PCM hardware that will not run Android OS, which is a big piece that has not being upgraded due to long compliance cycle per their engineering. Therefore, it is unreasonable to expect a lot of wish list items seeing in the Macan EV (like the AR HUD) to improve in regard to cameras, screens, vents, dashcam, but that means we can hope we will get most of the software improvements with a future major update such as left tube HV battery tile, and Assistance systems view in the middle.

I think within this context, they have outdone themselves and the competition.

Electrical system simplification and packaging. For example, no more 48V bus.

One thing is missing for me; a purpose for my Passenger Display. It looks cool, but I want to make use of it

I like the off/on button. Really, it’s more of an “off” button in practice. I don’t think I’ve ever once turned the car on with it. It always turns itself on when I enter. And I like being in control of when it turns off.

But I agree with the rest of your list.

I’m not sure I’d prioritize any of it over massaging cupholders, but to each their own.
I suspect you are used to it from ICE cars and just haven't experienced a car where it was not needed. For example, exit seat/steering wheel position simply kicks in when you park, unbuckle and open the driver's door. The more annoying Taycan thing is if you open the car via the remote and passenger goes into the passenger front seat, the car will not turn on and passenger cannot reach the ON button. Even if passenger has the keyfob, the car will not turn on. This happens for example when I go shopping with my wife, I open the trunk to load stuff and she goes into the passenger seat while I empty the shopping cart into the trunk. In order to turn the car on, I'd have to open the driver's side car door and press the ON button, and sometimes actually get in as the fob in my pocket is not always detected when I try to turn the car on by just opening the door and hitting the button. While I do that, I risk my shopping cart rolling away from behind the car where I left it. So bad user experience end-to-end.

PS> Mine doesn't always turn itself on. Requires ON button press from time to time. Never figured out why it works sometimes, not others. I did figure out that if you get in the car and turn it ON with a button, then without driving get out, it will not lock even with a key fob, have to come back into the car and turn it OFF manually.

You seem to be an ex-Tesla owner 😁
Yep, 4 Model S over a decade. Streak ended with the introduction of the yoke.
I thought I should have waited for the refresh model, however after seeing it I think the current one is far better looking and 8K cheaper. The Interior hardly changed only the front of the car has changed and made it look a bit boring.
The only things from the new one I would want would be Porsche Active Ride and push-to-pass. I prefer the look and price of the old one (21K less for my config). I also use the 19.2KW charger option daily, so would miss it.

Awful rear cam. Don’t like position of gear selector- too far reach; Innodrive can be downright dangerous at times. Changing music tracks or selecting different radio stations should be a 1 click affair

Refresh version will have a Track Skip Forward instead of the Regen button on the Steering Wheel.
I prefer how it is currently setup with Dimond configurable to skip to next track as @whitex pointed out, if that is what you prefer. I would think in the refresh the Dimond will be configurable to mimic current Regen button.

My current setup is:
Cluster Diamond = Homelink one press to open Garage door. Prefer hardware buttons but oh well.
Steering Diamond = Surround View when you need it quick to see around
Regen on Steering = Like the button to quickly engage Regen modes of choice (know that car is always in the regen mode not accessible to driver to control)
Skip Tracks = I am used to just press the onscreen buttons since other controls are on screen too such as << and >> and II and >.
