can't really see any difference, series II badge under side indicators. And probably the interior might have a different colour.

in the series II - new 16 inch wheels, i'm sure the tyres where also a bit wider, and the two-tone paintjob is a bit different - instead of the bottom half of the car being silver, it's only a small bit at the bottom, all around the car that is silver.

the following was taken from http://www.users.on.net/~ nweber/commodore/vr/index.html

"Changes with the VR Series II were: Speed Alert, Warning chime for handbrake on, Fuel low warning light and chimes, Different cloth trim... Series II badges under the front side indicators, V8 has a different starter motor, new exhaust manifold in an attempt to quieten the V6."

VS II Calais
hey i gotta vsII calais and iv seen the VR Calais as well. Heres wot i found
! The VR had the old 3.8 litre, the VS had Ecotec
! the VR had square (standard) side repeaters, the VS had oval shape
! VS2 was the only one (i think) to come out with SS bezels and foglights
! VS2 came with 16inch International style rims
! yes the two tone was made more minimal from vr to vs
! The taillight indicators for the vr were orange, the vs was clear

I think the way to tell the difference between the VR Series 2 and series 1 is they usually have a bit of chrome around the windscreen and the series 1 doesn't.

Other than that I think they are the same car basically.

I have a series 1 VR Calais and it has Speed Alert, Handbrake warning, low fuel warning with leather and velour trim. I thing with the VR Series II, those features were probably made available on all models not just the Calais.
