Someone may correct me on this, but I believe that most of those changes came in mid-year 99. My 2000 has the redesigned plastic intake manifold and the AIR pump and the extra goodies on the spark plug wires. There may be other changes that came in in '01, but I believe those came in earlier.

As for oil usage. Right now, my wife drives a '98 SL2 with 133K on it and I drive a 2000 SW2 with 75K. I've never added oil to either one except when changing.
There is nothing more frightening than ignorance in action.
