    Is it really an SE1?

    Been wondering this for a while now.

    Now when i bought my car it was advertised as a SE1, when searching for insurance quotes and entering the number plate it comes up saying my car is a SE1. Now i thought the SE1s only came in blue? Mine is silver...

    If it is a SE1 can anyone tell me what the difference between this an a normal 16v coupe is? I've heard they are slightly lower as standard. Also how many were made?

    Thanks in advance

    seeing as no one seems to have listened to my first post i'll repeat it

    Its definitely not an SE1

    All SE1/2 Astra Coupes were Europa Blue

    The SE1 will be finished in Europa blue - a pearlescent colour previously only available on the Coupe Turbo - and standard equipment includes 17-inch alloy wheels, lowered suspension, while the 2.2 also gets cruise control.

    Were SE2's the same as SE1's? Ive thought about it, but never bothered to find out until i read this.
    When i had my calibra the Special Editions were all different colours etc, but i noticed when looking to buy a coupe that SE1 and SE2 coupes seemed to be the same thing.
