The Bosch regulator on my car has black electrical tape wrapped around the bottom instead of canary yellow. Its been on there for as long as I've known of this car. Could some of our cars have had black electrical tape instead of the yellow or are they all taped in yellow?

I don't think that tape on eBay is the original style polyester tape, it just looks like vinyl tape to me.

 

Here's what I use, I have a NOS regulator at home and this tape looks identical to me
