I’m just worried about the advice on the Skoda website that not all Kodiaq models can have a towbar retro fitted.
@GallopingGourmet - no need for you to worry. :D

The only Kodiaq models that are NOT homologated for towbar fitting purposes are the 7-seat versions with the 2.0Tdi 150PS 4x4 MANUAL GEARBOX, whichever model be it: SE, SE L, Scout, Sportline, Edition, or L&K.

Details are confirmed in the Kodiaq Pricing & Specification leaflet available here: https://az749841.vo.msecnd.net/sitesen ... d8b13c.pdf
Kodiaq 190Tdi DSG L&K, Brown, DCC, Trailer Assist, Virtual Pedal, Digi Cockpit, Rough Road Pack, Ventilated Seats, Drive Mode, Rear Seat release, Heated Steering Wheel, Roller Blinds

Ordered 20/12/18 - est del 16wks - prov B/W 9, ie w/c 25/2/19

@arkaig - thanks, that’s good to know, peace of mind! Your spec has trailer assist but no tow bar?

Just as a side note, on a different thread someone retrofitted a tow bar ( not by Skoda) and as a consequence Skoda are rejecting a warranty claim on a known battery / battery module fault. Makes no sense but their stance is that the retrofit and alteration by non-Skoda technicians to the electrical systems is the route cause of the fault therefore no warranty claim is valid even though it’s a known problem.
It's a 'Kodiaq' and not a 'Bear' unless you are 5 years old.

@ GallopingGourmet - Yes mine will have a factory-fit electrically folding towbar.

The reason it's not showing in my signature is that there's a 255 character limit within this forum's signatures.

I’m exactly £295 below 40k, fingers crossed there will be no price increases and that the tax won’t go up by more than that!
