I have a view element in my module e.g.

'View List="Lists/Cars" BaseViewID="1" WebPartZoneID="FullPage1" WebPartOrder="0"'

I want to point this to an existing view e.g. MyView100, so i dont have create all the xml.

I cant use the listviewwebpart as i am in a sandbox.

How do i do this?

Try with DefaultView and BaseViewID (Where the BaseViewID is something other than 0)

<View List="Lists/Cars" BaseViewID="1" WebPartZoneID="FullPage1" WebPartOrder="0" DefaultView="FALSE" BaseViewID="1" />

More info on what's possible on MSDN:
