I think those are the Euro spec engines. the 286 hp 3.0 L and the 321hp 3.2 L respectively. Other than the obvious 6 throttle bodies and the other less restrictive emission controls on them I believe the blocks were also aluminum. In US we just got aluminum heads. (i think, Im just going off memory here)

S50B30 made it to Canada only
S50B32 never made it to North America

Both eninge got cast iron block, not aluminum like M50/52(european/Z3 engines)
