8 or 16 Valve ?

Does anybody know if you can tell the difference between an 8 valve and a 16 valve engine on the 159 simply by looking at it ? I assume there is a tell tale sign somewhere ?

At first I thought that red m on JTDm says it is 16v, but I am not sure it is the case.

I'm sure the oil filler cap is on opposite ends as well, so you can't fit a 16v cover on an 8v engine either!

It should tell you on the label on the drivers door or the B pillar.
