Skoda NZ increased Kodiaq prices by $3000 in 2018 due to a weakening NZD

background: in NZ, Kodiaqs are sold in four engine-transmission-spec packages, which can be up-specced

i placed my order before the price-jump cutoff , but wish to downgrade my package selection (FWD instead of 4x4 )

they say they'll have to charge me the new price ($3000 higher), because it's a re-order not a modification of an existing order

are they acting fairly, or am i having a leg pulled ?

I think thats fair as it a complete vehicle change and not just a bolt on modification.

They are being fair imo. So you ordered an Ambiton+ at $45k? The new price for the Ambition is still $2k cheaper than what you've ordered the Ambiton+ for, so why not just re-order..?

Have you had a confirmed build week?
IMHO (in U.K. at least) you can make changes before the confirmed build week but not after at any price.

the Ambition's leather / fabric look is beautiful

i know, $2000 cheaper. just hurts to be paying $3000 more than i could have

not sure if they can't help, or won't (modifying order instead of re-ordering)

4x4 badge : how much help / hindrance will it have on re-sale in NZ, Zach ?

If a price change happens then any modification will be at the prices in force at the time of the change

$2000 that goes back in your pocket... Better than nothing.

Will increase resale value. Kiwis are more willing to pay for the AWD models.
