Sync Services is not an MFT only feature, and there really is no need for a clumsy resistive touch screen in a car today personally. Sure it looks pretty, but until it actually works 100% of the time (or near enough as to make almost no difference) its just technology for the sake of technology and therefore I did not want this in my car.
To each his own Suss. That's why manufactures offer different options/packages, MFt is available to those who want it. Some prefer the 5 speed manual transmission over DCT. The same argument could be made there, where until such time that the DCT shifts flawlessly as it should, it becomes another useless annoyance. As with all techonolgy, it improves over time; I assume that will be the case here as well.
