VN S2 V6 Berlina
Gidday,

My first visit here. I've been hanging around the VN VP forum.

I'm keen to upgrage from my V6 VN to a V8 Calais in either VR or VS. VR's seem slightly cheaper but probably explained by being older.

My question is are there any major advantages in buying a 5.0l VS Calais over a similar condition 5.0l VR Calais.

Secondly, will a stock 5.0l go that much bettter than my V6 S2?

Thanks
Mick

same V8 engine VN-VS, so there is no advantage drive train wise as far as VR-VS models. What i would do is keep you eye out for one that was optioned with leather. VR is probably going to be cheaper like you say than a VS. So basically just look for the best value well kept one you can find.

Yeah as above, the only deciding factor would be your colour choice, and interior style.

Personally i'd go with VR, for the fact there cheaper. And i'm not a big fan of the 1/4 tone in series 2 VSs
