I like the look of aluminum myself, natural or polished. Sure it's a little higher maintenance but I think it looks sooo much better. You can get the heavy cast aluminum valve covers that have very thick machined sealing surfaces that wont bend and distort like stamped steel can. Of course, if you use new gaskets and don't overtorque the bolts in the first place you shouldn't have any problems to begin with...
