Conflicting info re whitehaven and need faucet advice

I'm being told by a distributor that I should not get the 36" kohler whitehaven for my existing 36 inch cabinet. I'm told that I need 2 - 3 inches for undermounting it so I really need the 30". That conflicts with my understanding of the sink specs though. Can someone who has one chime in?

Also, would love to hear opinions on a faucet. I've narrowed it down to either the Moen lindley or the Hansgrohe high arc talis c. I've seen positive posts of both - might just be a stylistic question.

They have many different models of the Whitehaven available. There's a retrofit model, and a non retrofit model. Be sure you are both talking about the same exact model.

That's the one I was ordering - I engaged in a "live chat" to ask a question about something and the CS rep told me even with that one, the largest I could go was a 30. I told her what the spec sheet said but she was adamant that to undermount that model, I'd need at least a 38 inch cab.

Strange. Everything I find says that it fits a 36" cabinet.

I have the 36 inch Whitehaven in a 36 inch sink cab. There was no problem with the install.

Thanks, Holly! I love my big sink and have bathed my toddler in it. She thought that was really funny.

Looks awesome! I'm sold. Glad to hear neither of you had any problems - I'm going to go ahead and order it.

Just a follow up in case someone else is wondering: I double-checked directly with Kohler. 36 inch sink in a 36 inch cab is fine.
