I take it there was an issue with the pics Colin? They all display correctly on my phone. I have seen this before with iPhones though, don’t know what it’s about.

Many smartphones encode the image orientation into the Exif data of the photos taken with them. This data contains information such as the location, if the camera has GPS, the shutter speed, the aperture setting etc.

Other devices such as PCs totally ignore this data causing problems like this :)

Nice :) Petrol blue with a black interior is the best choice!
As in so many things, Each unto theire own. I would never have black and petrol blue 'cos it's all too dark. I have had petrol blue and cream leather Yeti and now ditto Kaoroq Edition. I think it's a lovely colour combo, as do all my friends,
But it' what floats your boat. It would certasinly be a boring old world if we all drove same make, same colour, same interior cars, would it not?

I am the polar opposite, darker and blacker the better, one of the reasons why I ordered the Sportline and like the vRS is that it has a black headliner on the interior, loved that on my old vRS combine red with black seats. I didn’t order a black replacement Kodiaq as I always think black cars are harder to keep clean so I have gone for quartz.

I have never liked (and only owned one car) with a cream interior and I hated it. The other thing is no matter how often I see the petrol blue I cannot like it, there is something about the colour than does sit right with me.

Sorry FA.

Another Petrol Blue fan here. I had a Perol Vauxhall Vectra company car once. The colour was the nicest thing about it!

I had ordered Petrol Blue last February and a week later took my wife to see the showroom Kodiaq to check if she needed the running board to get in.....she`s a short lady. She didn`t but noticed an emerald green Karoq newly positioned in the showroom and said immediately, "I do like that better than the Blue". So being a domineering alpha male husband I immediately changed the order. :mrgreen:

When you have children of your own and your wife is a nanny for two young families a cream interior is not really an option worth considering.

When you get old, FA, like me. the brats have left home, the Mrs has been divorced and you have one svelt non car sick dog. Cream Leather is king! But in your position I'd get an old Landy and hose down the interior every day! It sounds as though you have a muck-fest going on in you Kodiaq! :lol: ;)

I’d’ve liked the beige interior but kids are still a factor!

Done nearly 1500 miles now and this is the best mpg I’ve achieved so far for a trip

My average on the full-ups is around 42-43mpg. It is taking a fair amount of granny driving to achieve that though!
