Vellfire advise please.


Recommended Posts

Hi, newbie here.

 

Ok silly questions time!

 

I'm looking to buy a Vellfire and would appreciate some advise please.

 

  1. I have aspirations of doing the North Coast 500 next year and plan to sleep in the Vellfire. So my question is can a 7 seater be converted into a bed (for 2 people), or is it only the 8 seater models? Are there any differences between the two (apart from the extra seat of  course! 😉)
  2. As I'll be doing the NC500 should I consider a 2wd or 4wd model.
  3. Has anybody converted their Vellfire to LPG? Is it worth the expense?
  4. Any idea what the average MPG is for a 2010 model?
  5. The cars I'm looking at have 50k on the clock, how many miles can Vellfire's do (looking for an indication of how many miles typically a Vellfire can do before it needs replacing).
  6. I've been told that there isn't a way to change the language settings on the Vellfire from Japanese to English (old models), is this the case?
  7. Are parts easy to come by?

 

Thanks for you help.

Hello Craig,

 

Welcome to the Forum

 

 

This Introduction section is for introductions, not discussions.

 

There is a very recent thread on Buying.

Search for it on your home page.

 

Or search Kerryn and review that thread.

 

Search Starider (I think) for a narrative on NC500

 

 

 

Good Luck.
