personally i think painted engine bays should stay with the show cars...if its a daily driver i wouldn't...i think its money that could be better spent else where

Black also shows up dirt really badly. Have a look at some of the black cars on the road! My last car was black and I ended up steam cleaning the engine bay each time I washed it as you could see nearly every mark and dirt trail. The only thing I can say is it didn't show oily bits too badly.
