Just to share...
I rode in a colleague vellfire, i think its the cheapest model.
All i can say is that its just an overprice overgrown van.lousy interior, lousy plastic, lousy fabric.
Only great build quality.not comfortable at all.
I rather buy a renault espace or 2 bold and use the extra cash to mod one of it.



siape cakap same u vellfire nice to ride 1?? lol smile_big.gif
alphard n vellfire, smile_dead.gif

Changed my original single horn located behind the right bumper to Bosch EC 6 horn (2pcs) installed behind the front grile,in front of the bonnet latch for RM70. Now it sounds like a real horn.


Bro, where you change the horn? My son said my horn lousy. lol.
Anyway, my fren said change BMW horn, cost $25 only, what do you think?

By the way, I am thinking to tint the last 2 side mirror and rear mirror, will that cause trouble from jpj?
(I checked aircool, the shop charging me 2 side + rear = $250. 85% filtered I think)
Nonetheless, I am thinking just use normal dark film to do that since already original tint.
What do you guys think?

Did you use the relay? When I replace for my citra, they say no need to use relay and it sound fine. I am thinking to DIY the horn replacement.

Proton? Can or not?

just get good quality bosch BM horn lor....

2 layer tint VLT sure wont pass JPJ. My price for 5 mirrors exora bold(4 side + 1 rear) is rm200, darkness u can choose from 50% 65% or 80%. After tinted, total IRR (together with 1st layer) is around 80-85%. But VLT definately will drop alot.

Mine in front tinted with 50% darkness, side/rear screen all 65% darkness... VLT around 20-25% only(measure with device). Since the 1st layer is reflective tint, u cant see through the interior after apply 2nd layer. Original tint VLT already max, VLT is around 50%

if scared for JPJ, better tear off the 1st layer then only apply good tint on it.

Hi Ntc2000,

I think my exora bold starting to have this 'one way valve' problem. I have heard 2 occurence of abnormal engine sound (softer than the klak klak sound in the youtube videos, but similar, during start of engine) that happens after 1 second I start the engine, and it lasted for half a second also.

Sien lah...happens after only 2 months into owning this exora bold.

What should I tell the proton edar service center to check for? Just tell them got klak klak sound during startup and suspect it is one-way-valve causing oil leakage from VVT ? Also, I am afraid i cannot reproduce this sound at the center because it is very rare, and never happen in the morning (in my case, only happen in the evening after park my car under hot sun, twice).

Also dunno if the Penang service center knows how to fix or not...

Proton should recall all exora bold to check and replace, not just wait for owners to complain.

Regards,
CKWG


exactly same as mine (softer than the klak klak sound in the youtube videos, but similar, during start of engine). sent to sc last tuesday and got back my eb last friday. took them 4 days to resolved the issue.

my advice, if u want to buy NGL, buy 1.8 version...

1.6 underpower, and will overheat... NGL owner told me 1.


Tks but after checking with my 2 colleagues using 1.6 variant confirmed that there is no problem with 1.6 of being underpower and for that reason i consider buying thsi car.

If you look at avanza , rush only 1.5 and yet people are rushing to buy..woh. Dont forget exora is also 1.6
