This. My 2008 130i has hydraulic steering and has the black engine cover and plastic valve cover.

From what I know, the black engine is a little more reliable than the first version of the N52, which tends to leak more oil. On the other hand, PCV valve is a known issue on the black one, which is tedious and more expensive as it is integrated so you have to change the entire valve cover. Still..... I love my E87!
