The four year Škoda Maintenance Package for the Kodiaq costs INR 59,999/-. Škoda would have done the math to arrive at this figure. Therefore, I think we can safely assume that per year service cost should be roughly around 15k.

best part of this generation indirect TPMS is they do give you the individual tyre leaking air.
Thanks so much, Pramod! Yeah, it is possible to turn it on using the VCDS cable and software. Unfortunately, I don't have one. Rosstech sells it's cable in India through a reseller but the latest version costs 52K . The older one costs 35K which is still super expensive. I searched on aliexpress and there are much cheaper alternatives but I'm skeptical about their quality. Wonder if the service center can get this done for me if I request them. Still wish that they had turned it on by default.

In other news, I got ceramic coating done on my WaveRider at RelectOn. I highly recommend Sandesh and his team. They're extremely good at what they do. They use MaxProtect UNC range of products. Thoroughly professional, honest, maintain a very clean facility and priced very reasonable as well. Couple of pictures post coating:

I love the water beading effect. Saw it in action during the rains couple of days ago. I use Proklear waterless wash to clean my rides. I've always needed 500ml of water + 5ml of the concentrate to clean my erstwhile XUV5OO. I was able to clean the entire Kodiaq, including wheels, with just 250ml! Wonder if it's the effect of the coating. Dirt just doesn't stick or, worst case, comes off easily. I use a Jopasu duster on a daily basis and Proklear once a week.

Would love to get this enabled on my Kodiaq.

Does the cable and software come with the car?

No, the cable and software are third party diagnostic cable specific designed and developed to work with VW groups cars. please go through previous post by achyu for the original cable cost in India! if you have someone who can get you the cable from US/EU that would be best

Are there any Q5 or Q7 owners or experience who have driven the Kodiaq. It would be good to get a comparison feedback on the interior luxury element of the two cars.

Hey Big, my average cost of servicing never crossed Rs. 11000-12000 average. I guess if I remember right it must have been more only a couple of times or three times. The service cost included my castrol edge pro engine oil which was about 400 bucks more per liter than the regular oil so in effect 4.3 lt would increase my average bill by Rs. 1700 or so each time.

With Kodaiq, the engine oil cost will go up as the required quantity is more. As the engine is the same used across VW (2.0 liter) the spares may be the same. Of course, I am speculating but the air filter might be different which means the average service cost without any add-ons shall be around the same. Please do visit their website on Kodiaq for more information

I dont own a Q but get to drive one when I feel like since a friend has the new Q7 in the neighbourhood.

While the Kodiaq is luxurious in its own right, everything you touch and feel in the 7 has a more premium feel to it. The way the switches click, the glovebox opens, the cabin lights, the leather on the seats, the interior door handles, the works. It is a couple of notches above the Kodiaq, which is by design.

That said, it is mainly the performance and the brand which make the 7 sell.

The 5 lacks the space the Kodiaq has and the interiors feel better, how much, that depends from person to person.
