    Car covers

    Looking at getting a car cover as car spends alot of time sat on the drive which is under a tree, any recommendations on a decent one without going mad on the price? Maybe even one that may be designed for the A3 shape?

    Thanks

    unless your car is spotless and the inside of the cover is also spotless, could end up with a car with loads of little scratch marks on it

    This is my concern, but where it is is getting plastered with bird crap which is doing the paint work no good

    I too am in the market for a cover that fits the A3 sportback well. The tree resin and bird sh*t are just too much, and it will take quite a few more months until I can build a proper shelter or car-port. Please does any member have a reccomendation for a good car cover? Much appreciated.

    Would never consider one sorry. As said above, you can really mark the paintwork.

    I ve used one for more than a year and it hasn't marked my paintwork one bit. Buy a decent one and keep your car clean and polished....job done.....
    Buy a cheap one and it will probably mark your paintwork.
