i have a series 2,off the top of my head,series 2 got
:front power windows,
:cruise contrrol im guessing going by post above
:light in the roof with sunglass holder instead of the normal light in the centre,
:headlights had orange blinkers on the headlight itself,not orange globes with clear blinker on the headlight,
:different tail lights on the wagon,
:chrome strip on the bottom of the boot on the sedan
im not sure but i think the series 1 wagon missed out but the series 2 got metal strips in the boot where you put these tie down points into it and then you can actually strap stuff down

VY Series 2 25th Anniversary in Phantom Mica
my series 1 has colour coded surround...

Series 1 executives had a black plastic surround, the higher models were painted. Series 1 to 2 there were also changes to the Berlina and Calais, Berlina series 2 got at least a new front bumper cover with driving lights, new rims, leather wraped steering wheel and satin chrome bits, not really sure about the Calais though. Also the rear number plate surround on series 2 Berlina I think was chromed. The S Pac differences included a higher level dash cluster and 17" rims. also the chrome strip on the bootlid didn't go onto s pac series 2. SV8 Series 2 also got a higher level dash cluster

VY Berlina Wagon
I have a VY Berlina Wagon Series 1, 2002 model. 275K so far and never let me down. Still drives like new. Just fitted genuine Leather steering wheel I bought on Ebay for $85 absolute bargain. Followed instruction to fit wheel I found here. Thanks Just Commodores!. My car has cruise control , 4 power windows, climate, alloys, good ride, good handling, armchair comfy seats, ample power, great open road cruiser. What more can you want. No plans to upgrade for the near future. Difference I have noticed with series two are front driving lights in bumper lower vent area, rear lights are clear lenses with coloured brake lights and indicators beneath, plastic surround around rear rego plate (this is chromed on the VZ I think).

ahh so the series 1 s pack has chrome boot strip..?

No the s Pac has no chrome strip at all both series 1 and 2. Series 2 S Pac main improvements were the upgraded dash and the 17" rims.
