I brought one from Halfords, X Large for my car - cost £70 which i thought was very expensive but i was a bit paranoid at the time because peoples cars were being broken into around the area.....thinking about it putting the cover on would of got the car more attention!!
To be honest i've only put it on the car a few times since i got it, it has clips on the front and rear which helps keep it on the car but strong winds still cause the cover to blow around.
I once read somewhere that you should only cover a car if its kept inside, like a weekend car thats kept in a garage etc.
Plus do you realistically want to go out every morning and take it off carefully as not to scratch the car, fold it up somewhat neatly and then put it somewhere-in the cold and wet, all before you even get into the car to go to work.
Then go out again [after you come home and eat a bite of dinner] to the cold and wet, get the cover, shake it out, put it back over the car carefully as not to scratch the paint.
Too much effort for my liking.
Its 1.5 tons of German engineering; a bit of rain and cold won't do it any harm!
Do NOT put these on your car as it WILL scratch it!! Covers are perfect if you wash and dry your pride and joy and are putting it in a garage. If you buy one to put it on your car with grit and muck on your car it will destroy your paintwork!!
I used a bike cover on my 1st motorbike for 1 week and it rubbed the paintwork so bad I had to get it resprayed! And that was on a clean bike, just the act of the clean cover rubbing back and forward with the wind did the damage, I would have hated there to have been grit or muck in there as well!!
Much better letting it get dirty and cleaning it correctly than this option!!!
