(b) The court in any action, suit or proceeding, in which service is made in the manner provided in subsection (b) or (c) of K.S.A. 40-2002 may, in its discretion, order such postponement as may be necessary to afford the defendant reasonable opportunity to comply with the provisions of subsection (a) of this section and to defend such action.

(c) Nothing in subsection (a) of this section is to be construed to prevent an unauthorized foreign or alien insurer from filing a motion to quash a writ or to set aside service thereof made in the manner provided in subsections (b) or (c) of K.S.A. 40-2002 on the ground either (1) that such unauthorized insurer has not done any of the acts enumerated in subsection (a) of K.S.A. 40-2002, or (2) that the person on whom service was made pursuant to subsection (c) of K.S.A. 40-2002 was not doing any of the acts therein enumerated.
