Care to share how it helps with the torque and power? Currently the 3.5 engine is quite good but a little more low-end torque would be useful in a full-load scenario.

Sold your presage?

Thank you for your responses to my queries in the presage. I'm a happy camper. Almost went for Isis until I read your posts the presage and decided on the presage for 6k more.

Glad you are enjoying your Presage. It is definitely a superior MPV to the Isis in terms of space and features.

I had to trade mine in for the Alphard as the kids are growing bigger and I often ended up with a full load of 8 quite often.

I'm guessing you have 5 kids?

I'm actually lamenting the fact that the presage has been discontinued. Wondering what I will be replacing it with come 2018.

What made you opt for the Alphard instead of the Vellfire or Elgrand?

Elgrand really no power so many ppl choose not to buy elgrand due to no power. Tested drive the car feel very sluggish and hard to accelerate. Alphard 2.4 has more power and 3.5 will be superb.

Dont get confused between my personality & my attitude...

My personality is who I am...

My attitude depends on who you are...

for Alphard/Vellfire owners, will you guys switch over to conti? eg. VW multivan or similar..

will you guys consider customisable options as well?

2009 : Honda Civic 1.8
2011 : Honda Civic Type R - Our Red 'H'. You'll only find it on our Formula 1 and Type R cars. It symbolizes Honda's racing challenge; to deliver a car engineered for pure exhilarating performance.

The first generation Elgrand looks very boxy so I ruled it out quite early even though I found its swivel rear seats very handy (which were discontinued in the second generation Elgrand).

The second generation Elgrand surprisingly has a smaller cabin compared to the Alphards/Vellfires so that was crossed out of my list too.

The Vellfires that were available then were all seven-seaters so they were not suitable (I needed eight-seaters).

Most of the Alphards that were on the market then were also seven-seaters. I happened to come across a fairly new eight-seater that was in great condition, low mileage and the dealer was open to taking my Presage in for a fair price.
