e46 with n42 engine, sound deadener is dead

Hi, wifes car is a 2002 318I with the n42 valvtronic engine, been having mysterious oil consumption for a while and this was reduced greatly by adding 10/40w grade oil rather than the 5/30w, ok so here is the issue i noticed that the sound deadener/proofing material on the underside of the hood/bonnet has started to crumble, and more specifically directly over where the oil filer cap is! also noticed the headlight cover strips that have rubber parts on them have begun to perish big time, could it be that the oil in the engine leak is evaporating and coating these parts with oil and spoiling them?
