    Can anybody recommend a good car cover?

    After this mornings shenanigans of clearing off 6 inches of snow to find a 10mm sheet of ice covering the entire car, I have decided to buy a cover for the car.
    There are loads on ebay ranging from £10 to about £150, some are universal and some are bespoke to the A3.

    My question is, can anybody recommend a good one for under about £30? Are the universal ones any good, or will they blow about and scratch the car because they are designed to fit all sizes?

    Any advice would be great......thanks!
    ....................I'll make a build thread one day.

    The cheap ones are rubbish and not worth the hassle. Pay around £130 for a stormforce and recoup around 50% when you come to sell up. Highly recommended.

    My opinion is all car covers scratch the paint. you put a car cover on a dirty car and with wind blowing and putting it on and taking it off, all that dirt will scratch the surface. just my 0.02
