This afternoon I spoke to a previous S1 owner, who said that the crackle finish on the valve covers was just crackle paint--not a textured finish on the valve cover itself. This means that it's almost certainly the original valve cover, just with its paint stripped off.

It wasn't anything to worry about before, but now it's a total non-issue.
