    Hi all,
    I've taken my car off the road over the winter as I do a fair bit of work on it and I'm looking for a decent car cover.

    Does anyone else on here use a cover? If so what one do you use? I don't really care about cost

    Cheers Matt

    As you are probably aware, you have to be very, very careful as any loose/flapping material + some dirt on the car = nightmare.

    I used a specialised car cover on my old ibiza. Retail was approx £200 but I got it second hand off ebay. It was tailored and a snug fit but still caused paintwork damage. I think it's impossible to avoid unless you are using the cover indoors.

    Other problem was the local cats took a liking to it for claw sharpening so ended up with quite a few tears in it.

    If you have the room, you are better off with something like a folding garage. That way your car is under cover but the cover is held well away from the car. From memory they are around £400.

    Cheers guys I don't mind paying £2-300 for a cover, I won't be taking the cover off every week it's only really to keep the **** off as it's stored near a tree at my parents house. Jason do you remember who made yours mate?
