I believe that the ironman kit contains longer suspension struts, better or stiffer coil springs and some other bits and pieces. I read about it online and some other members here have added it to their fortuners and endevours. Their details are available in the 4x4 section.
Costs approximately 80000 or somewhere close by. I am not sure if specific kits exists for each car, or it is a generic kit.

Its definitely got a generic kit, it wouldn't fit more than a handful of vehicles then. I don't think Ironman makes a kit for the Yeti. I hope I am proven wrong.

3 years and a half. 28K odd kms.
Lovely little car. Makes me grin every time I accelerate. Solid little beast.
Love it.

Don't want to let it go. Normally I start considering a change in 3 years or so but this one, well, I want to hang on to it and keep driving it as much as I can for as long as I can.
Nothing else comes close in terms of features, value, bang for the buck and quality.

A good little beast overall.

Interesting adjustable air lift kit for the Yeti. Pricey, though @ $5k:

Dear all yeti owners.. I completed 18 months of sheer pleasure with my little brother (aka Yeti) and can't stop thanking you all for making me buy this, reading your reviews. After 4 years of dilly dally, I took the plunge in October 2013 and really enjoying every single ride. Anyways, I won't bore you with my blah blah blah here since you all know more about this gem. I'm here to seek some help ; I want to go for some additional accessories (originals) for Yeti but not finding much options. Simplest of them being the kagu mats. Ordered for kagu mats twice from shopclues and it was cancelled due to dealers inability to source and ship (!!). Now ordered from eBay and awaiting the delivery. Meanwhile, I checked out HU upgrade to caska, but realized it's not good after reading numerous reviews. These are just 2 examples, and I have few more such upgrades but not finding a good place to browse and buy. I checked with skoda dealers and they aren't too interested either. Found a website named superskoda from Europe and the reviews are mixed.
Therefore reaching out to you for some advice.

Superskoda has mixed reviews. Even I had faced some issues while ordering items from them a few years back. But in the last couple of years, I have ordered several items from them right from badges to OE LED tail lamps and their service has been good. Only problem is that they ship using national post which arrives through our postal system which attracts fines over and above customs duties, and ofcourse the pain of having to go through with all that yourself. If it had been DHL or fedex or other courier companies, they would have done that part for you and you just had to pay the customs duties when you receive the item. Other than that, I have faced no problems with Superskoda lately. Also check out skodadop and carsystems online stores, and ofcourse Aliexpress and ebay. All these are worth trying.

If you could wait a little more, like a couple of weeks or so.. I will be updating my Yeti upgrades thread with more upgrades and retrofits, with an exhaustive list and all the details of mods from delivery till date including part nos., source details, etc. You could pick from that list as most of my upgrades are OE and fully compatible, tested and proven.

Thanks Ajax. Yes, I'm not in a hurry and eagerly looking forward to your next set of updates. Thanks in advance.

Despite quirky looks, it seems to be the complete vehicle for all occasions.
Did they change the timing belt & V belt also?
My car was also diagnosed with a faulty water pump but they say i have to pay for the rubber parts since they aren't covered under warranty!

No cost. Everything under warranty.

You might need to do some dealership management.

My experience with Skoda, when the car was under Field service Action for AC Compressor here (Closure of Skoda's Authorized Service Centers in Siliguri! Owners left in the lurch)

The Yeti went through a tire change (Skoda Yeti : Tyre & wheel upgrade thread)

Car is at 85,000 kms and in the next 2,500 kms it will approach its service. Can someone let me know as to what is the life of the timing belt?

Else the car is good. AC is chilling after the valve replacement and the car is nice to drive, you really don't feel those 85,000 kms. Engine note is crisp, no rattles, only very minor squeaks. Hope the ASC will take good care of it.

Thanks

Timing belt and pulley change interval for Yeti (for dust-rich countries, which is applicable for India) is 120,000 Kms.

Has anyone clarified the Haldex oil change interval of every 3 years with the A.S.S. guys? I have asked them to check same and waiting for a reply. Has anyone done this oil change already? Kindly give details. Thanks.

I have been told earlier that timing belt kit needs change after 90k kms. I got my 90k service done at 80k (i generally get my service done a couple of thousand kms earlier) and at that time dealer mentioned about interval. I will doublecheck though. For haldex, i have asked the dealer to arrange but i don't know what taking them so much time.
