    FYI the SE1/2 was 1.8 or 2.2 only
    as far as i know there's no difference, the SE2 is just a later re-run of the first special edition (SE1)

    SE1's have shortened spring on the back, but not all SE2's do due to VX changing the spec mid run.

    Other than that the differences is prettymuch just age, with SE1's predating SE2's by approx 1 year

    Ive the 1.8 and it does 28 to 30 mpg thats not driving easy but thats not pushing it either, if your gonna use it on alot of long runs get the 2.2 due to the longer ratio gearbox.

    Make sure any car you see is actually a SE1 though. My old one was registered as a SE1 although it wasn't.
