Whilst looking under the bonnet of the 9-3 of a friend of mine, I noticed that his engine block is sprayed black (came from the factory like that he says), whilst mine is plain and unsprayed. Does anyone know if there is a reason why some blocks were sprayed black, whilst others remained un-sprayed?

When I worked for Rover the block was painted when it was different from the biggest runner eg 2.0l version of 1.6l, they came from the supplier (internal at the time) already painted if required.
