Have a look at your vehicle identification plate in the engine bay.
EF model codes will be 184**
EF II will be 186**

If it has the ABS sticker on the back windscreen, then its a Series 2....
Or the rear window has been replaced :?

The other tell tale sign is the Ash tray, and the ciggy lighter.
If the ashtray covers the ciggy lighter, then its a series 1

If the ciggy lighter is accessable with the ashtray closed, then its a series 2.

I can access my ciggy lighter with the ashtray closed, I own an 11/94 EF I. This particular part is so easy to change, it would be the most unreliable part to check.
