Another one in the queue to hear how to fit and see pics. We have just got a blue Kodiaq so really interested.

Now fitted, from Superskoda. Really breaks up that plain rear end.
Suggest fitting the reflector to the black moulding before fitting in place.
I levered existing corner reflectors out and broke them, to save having to get behind to the clips. New corner reflectors match the refector bar.
Also fitted dummy exhaust trims from Superskoda to break up large expanse of black plastic bumper.

Does all that put your insurance up? Insurers want to know about body kits and exhaust modifications.

Not a bodykit, its a safety feature if anything.
Exhaust is not modified, just trims added.

If it were me I'd tell my insurance company. I have to tell mine when I fit 17 Inch wheels and winter tyres despite it making the car safer for winter driving. Happily they don't charge me anything but they insist on being informed, and again when I change back to Summer wheels. My insurance terms and conditions say any modification after it leaves the factory, even an aftermarket tow bar and I wonder of one needs to tell them about tow bar mounted bike carriers.

There is no harm telling them so they have a record, better to have to pay more than run the risk of voiding ones insurance is the view I take. I know for example I must tell them if I fit aftermarket reversing sensors or camera.

Would be good seeing an image of the whole of the car from the rear so we can see it in its entirety, difficult to tell if I like it from close up. Not convinced by the exhausts to be honest but more than happy to be out voted by the masses. That said I’m a little bias as I’m not a fan of car mods so difficult to please.
It's a 'Kodiaq' and not a 'Bear' unless you are 5 years old.

I saw a Kodiaq just like this today! In fact it parked right outside the house.

It looked very smart too!
