No harm going for either one just insist on NO ADDITIVE.
As per an internal buletin they released long2 time ago when the problem with oil cooler hose start to surface, they mentioned breaking down of additive molecule causes turbine failure as it clogged turbo oil feed line.

My sis Exora bold cfe has been running on semi oil until today.

Because i call service center to make appointment and they insist me to use fully . Then i read online fully oil is too thin and not suitable for turbo oil. So yeah ZTH is the best place to ask for advice.

No additive, ok i will take noted. Thanks !

Since your car is under warranty, then please use what SC recommend. FS is more heat resistant , and from from what I heard from my brother (works in Proton) the small oil lines can get clogged up easily if the oil cant withstand the heat, and block lubrication to the turbo.
and for the record a 5W-40 FS vs a 10-40 SS isnt too thin for the FS. Yes it is slightly thinner overall but a 40 is a 40 no matter FS or SS.
the 40 refers to a range of Viscosity at 100 C,ranges from 12.5 cst to a maximum of 16.3cst. Normally the FS will be 12.8 to 13.8 cst while the SS may be 14.5cst, so no a FS is not too thin,

To me both can be used. More importantly is you oci and do it on time. Semi probably change at an earlier time then Fully. And like bro. alcyon mentioned used the oil recommended by your SC to follow the warranty standard...

if u always drive hard or long distance high speed travel...it is better to keep the engine on fully syn oil...

petronas syntium is very good oil to use..
