Yeah it is the 1.4 Ecotec, Thats was what was in mine when I got it. Engine was fooked though due to snapped timing belt.

I think your is the same model as mine John. Same Colour as well. 1.4 16v LS? Mine has Power Steering, Leccy Windows, Fog Lights etc as well. It is annoying though that my old J Plate GLS had Electric Heated mirrors and the P Plate one has manuals.

Because the GLS is better faster much nicer and lovelier to look at than anything on the roads :P

isnt the facelift black panel different to the GSI black panel tho??

mine looks grey-ish and the GSI's look black.

anyway, the puzzling thing about the mk3 facelift is why they bothered putting the 1.6 8v I have in mine into the astra when the 1.4 16v is faster, more bhp, better fuel economy etc.
