    C16NZ, means iirc its a C catagry emissions which will be that year (roughly) 16 = 1.6 litre, and NZ is single point injection 8v, thats why i think its C16NZ,

    ill have a quick look to see if i can check that for you,

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    If it's an 8valve 1993 Astra F it could either be a C16SE or C16NZ
