Hey I just noticed that the L&K has body coloured bumpers. Makes a big difference where Style is now looking very basic from outside.

Yes it does. That's why I showed the difference in previous post. I actually never saw a White L&K before but it looks good in White. Not as noticable in Black or Brown. Blue also it is good

Thanks dude. Nothing on the paint to be honest. I had an X1 briefly for 7 months before making the switch to this. Got a PPF done on that for front bumper, rear bumper and bonnet. That did come in handy. However being a White color car, I am not too keen on getting PPF done as it will get yellowish over time and will need to re apply a new one. As for ceramic coating, I didn't find it too helpful with my type of use and it didn't give as much hydrophobic coating as they claimed. Perhaps the quality of where I got it done was the cause but I think I'll just got for a proper polish and wash every alternate month or so.

One thing I will be doing is changing the tyres and rims. Changing from the MRF Markus 235/55/R18 to Continental Sport Contact 5 245/45/R19 wtih Momo Spider 19" rims. Have already placed an order and expecting to get it sometime next week. Will post an update once I've swapped it

Re: Skoda Kodiaq : Official Review

For anyone who is interested in the different view modes provided by the L&K variant in the Virtual Cockpit. The dial colors also change according to the ambient lighting color you choose and you can also choose to display different information other than the Driving mode and hear as well as digital speed. You can choose to showcase the range, average speed, average fuel consumption etc.

Are you sure its white paint?

Looks more like white surface protection film like that can be observed on B and C pillar.

Kindly check.

Yes, I'm aware of the difference. It isn't protection film. L&K gets body colored bumpers. The bottom bit is still matte finished in black to prevent scratches etc since it is still and SUV but most of it is body colored. It was the same in the Magnetic Brown L&K we test drove. We have also ordered a White Style variant to be used by my in-laws. They are in Kerala. When we get the cars side by side. I shall post more photos so the differences are more apparent.

Besides, if it was just protection film, why wouldn't the Style variant also have it?

Here is a photo I clicked today.

Superb! The extension of the body colour paint and the protruding lip on the front bumper somehow makes the L&K look so much appealing. What are the other differences with the Style?

Congratulations on your stunning buy

Ok. That service package sounds like a reasonable deal.

Happy miles crunching with this classy car and looking forward to your ownership thread and this car surely deserves one.

Thanks again! I had taken the service package for my Octavia. I used two of the services as I sold the car after that. My sales advisor now says it's not required and that not much can be gained from it. The difference will be negligible so I may not get the package after all. But will get the warranty extended before it completes 4 years

Is opting for extended warranty at a later date (especially after a few years) an option provided by Skoda? I don't think they allow this. You may be able to avail the extended warranty only if taken within a few weeks/ months from the date of purchase. Well thats my understanding. Also, we bought a Superb for a colleague, and while the extended warranty was available at 1.2lacs at the time of purchase, they have increased the cost to 1.45lacs now (after 4-5 months of purchase) as we had not purchased it then.
