Car cover recommendations

Hi all,

Looking for recommendations for a car cover. I have the OEM cover, which is a great fit. But, I want something water-proof for better protection from snow and rain. Unfortunately I don't have a garage at this time.

Thanks in advance!

This one is pricy but looks like a good option. Thoughts? Experiences?

I have never used an outdoor car cover, so my concerns may be unnecessary, but

The thought of any cover, sitting on the paint, for months. being blown around with little bits of dust/sand/grit/etc under it scratching the paint the whole times gives me chills.

The other nightmare, is rodents making a home under there.

I would rather clean the car, give it a good coat of sealant and wax and let it sit.
Come spring, clean and polish it for the summer.


Besides, snow is the least of your problems in NC and I would risk rain over my other nightmares

Your car is my most personalized expensive possessions. you have a personal attachment to it. Just as you take extra care to keep your external look, attractive, fresh and appealing, you have the same attitude towards your car.

But since your car is always exposed to external environment, it is vulnerable to dusting and theft. so car cover is most important for your cars. i found a website here you can chose porche car cover, Thanks!

If you are in a dilemma on which flushing toilet suits your home, you better try the Kohler Highline Toilets https://bestflushingtoilets.org/kohl...oilet-reviews/. This brand is well known for the various outstanding features that make it fun to install in your bathroom. Take this tip and you will never regret it.

I also park my car outside. I used an OEM outdoor cover for a a few years but the material isnt really that durable for outdoor use and the cover started ripping after a few years. BMW 82-11-2-157-090

I bought another outdoor cover on Amazon from Leader Accessories. It is a true outdoor car cover but it does not have the same soft lining that the OEM cover has. It is not a perfect fit either. My cover fits sedans up to 185 and this is more than enough for our Zs
