No one is criticising anyone for what they can or cannot afford.

It's no one's right to judge one another's belongings.

Besides, it's not our fault that most cars are just plain unaffordable to the masses. We never had a say in it.

If anyone should be held responsible for most everyone having to drive Protons, it should be the government.

i will have to agree with SSHO, it's just because people can't afford anything else, and now with a plus, it's sporty...if you like the spaceship lights behind...

iswara gti..at first i thought it was a big joke but then i thought.this
would suit people who are thinking of buying kelisa or kenari.
ya...proton smart strategy.

well to improve the iswara further or to make it more presentable.here are
my tips:

1. change back light to the std model lights
2. paint the area around the holes on the grille to flat black.
3.remove the skinny top back spoiler.
4.change to rim to some light 15" inch wheels.give it some mat racy look.
5.lower the car.

iswara gts............

for me ...
hopefully the new facelift would be better by replacing current things to :
1-rear altezza lights with red lens than the current clear lens , (sonata
look )
2-meter , the meter just design it better than using this sh1tty like a
kindergarten kid's job !
3-bumper , redesign the bumper than adding body skirt .
4-rear wiper
5-exhaust , what are hell are they doing !?!

ok guys . you want to say it is a good car if some one cannot afford a
wira . but do you know that the things are getting lesser from the first
iswara to current one , last time they got exhaust extention to the engine
to warm up the engine faster ... ... . add these stupid things and
increase the price , stupid la ! look at the kancil , they redesign the
whole front panel , but they still managed to reduce the price , AFAIK
redesigning the whole front body panel costs more than fitting body kit to
the front .
its a good car for the price , but its a bad car from the

For me I like the car also, but 1 item I really cannot figure out where
proton don want to change it. The carb engine why not change to the wira
1.3 injection engine.

I believe proton try not to pull the wira 1.3 market, but proton can always
come out 1.3 waja so the iswara can totally taken wira 1.3. right guys.

On last friday, I personally go to showroom once I open the door & close
the door. On my mind is .. " WOW " goo improvement in the door, really no
more " milo can" sound, and only feel solid sound. Overall is really very
good bargain car, but the final thing I open up the bornet, I saw the carb
head my friend also say " WAHLAU". Then the salemen also laugh, he also
comment canot figure out why proton drop in the same engine to the "new"

But just to compare, Kancil, Kelisa, Kenari, Iswara, Wira. I believe most
peopl will go for this new iswara, problem is cheap and sporty look it
really can actract youngster market.

But overall I still give a *thumb up* to proton, atleast some changes not
so boring. Big Smile

Just my 2 cents ...
