18-55 VR II vs 18-70 (both dx)

Recently my friend broke my 18-55 kit lens (beyond repair), and he's giving me money to replace it ($100).

I am deciding which lens to buy to replace the focal length, and I came across the 18-70.  It costs pretty much the same as the 18-55, but is longer.  If anyone has this lens please talk to me about IQ.  I liked the quality of the 18-55 but I find that I would like the extra reach of the 18-70, and it has a faster max aperture.  I don't really use VR so it's not a problem.

Basically I just want to hear about IQ, and if it would even be an upgrade.  Thanks!
