    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

    i wouldnt mate
    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

    I bought some sh*t car cover from halfords the day before ADI last year was only £30. Only wanted it to keep the car clean for the show.

    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.
