I have a vespa P200e original carburetor with the original cover with the
IGM 3884 S number stamped on top.
I tried searching for a chromed cover with oil injection and all I get is this strange one with slanted bevel thing on top; what's with that?
I tried finding the paint color to refinish my original one, but no success.
So now I'm thinking of just getting the original one chromed. Any thoughts?

Chrome the original if that is the look you want. Bevel top covers came out later. Provides a slightly larger volume in the airbox itself. Many 'large volume' airbox covers are available nowadays.

Thanks markosmarkos,
I'm skeptical that the new version with the added volume would have much of effect on the performance, looks gimmicky.
I'm getting mine chromed then.
