Hi, yes that's the right one. It's the same as mine.

With regards to the badging this is what i've read so not 100% sure of its accuracy.

The bubble was made up to R reg (i think) carrying badges denoting the engine size and trim level. e.g. 214si. Now, as the k series engine was a powerful engine the 1.4 was on par with the 1.6 from other manufacturers, say a Ford Focus. Although the performance was the same the average consumer didn't see this. They only saw 1.4 Rover as opposed to 1.6 Focus and chose the bigger engine size 'cos they thought Rover 214 isn't as good or impressive as Focus 1.6. In an attempt to combat this Rover decided to use '200' badges on their cars from S reg onwards (except the 200vi & brm models which were named accordingly).
