    It deff looks like the Z16XE which should be a fly by wire TB. The X16XEL has a throttle cable.

    Looks like mine and mine is a Z16XE. If you look down the left hand side on the black plastic cover on the engine mine has a barcode and number written on a sticker that told me.
    Crazy little Scottish lass!

    The Z----- engines came in from Aug 2000, so X-reg onwards.

    Look in the "EC Certificate of Conformity" in the vehicle documentation pack.
    Maintains:- Vectra Design 1.9CDTi
    Drives :- Hyundai Santa Fe
