VY II SS
Hi everyone,

New to the forum and looking to get rid of my old fairmont and step into a VY SS. What is the difference between the the s1 and s2?

So far i have found the s2 is 1658kgs with 245kw and 465Nm compared to the s1 being 1602kgs with 235kw and 465Nm.

Fuel consumption i have found to be the same(13L/100km, 7.4L/100km highway).

I am a uni student so unless the VY II SS is fair better than the VY SS then I will go for the cheaper one as I am stretching as it is to get this car but having said that I don't want to spend all that money when I could of had the better one for another grand.

All info appreciated,

Cheers.

Just for your info too, I don't know how many VY SS owners get 13 and 7 for the fuel consumption.

I mean I average around the 16 and drive quite sedate, and can get into the 8's on the freeway.

However my car is tuned, and probably gets better fuel consumption than stock.

Generally the VYII's are just better as holden corrects all the problems that the S1's had. Personally if you can afford it, go the VYII.

Ok, Thanks for the advice everyone. As for the fuel consumption I realize that they are more the best possible results rather than the average and you don't buy a 5.7L V8 for the fuel consumption . As i drive on the freeway regularly 8L to the 100 is fine as my current 4L ford uses about that anyway.

Cheers for the replies.
