    depends on the condition milage etc, if pretty average all round i would say around £7-800. If its 16v then yeah it will be badged ecotec. if its not got than branded pon the engine cover thenitll be a 8v. not 100% they ever did a 1.4 16v in the mk3

    I was going to say the same, dont think they did the 1.4 16v in the mk3, unless its very rare?

    should be 1.4 8v, 1.6 8v, 1.6 16v, 1.8 16v etc...

    Yeh they did do a 1.4 16v in the astra f - it was the X14XE engine, but i think it was only on GLS spec models. Could be wrong tho...?

    yea I think you're right, only the GLS, maybe the LS did too, tho the merits and LS's were nearly all 1.6 8 valve's like mine.

    what you need is a 95 1.8 16v Sport, much better option.

    nope was a 1.4 8v muti - point injection rather than single point should be 1.4 8v, 1.6 8v, 1.6 16v, 1.8 16v etc... as Sten says.


    bout £7-800 agreed and did do blue yes! even shiny metalic blue

    Nah there definately was a 1.4 16v cos i've seen several around. The 8v multipoint was the early GLS models, C14SE engine. They later replaced that and the C16SE with the X14XE and X16XEL 16v engines.
