Car covers

Can anyone recommend a good brand of car cover?

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

I had a (or used to have) an Autotecnica car cover. Excellent quality, so much so, some arsewipe knocked it off my car when I went overseas.

The XR was parked in Sydney Airport Long Term car park.

Is it for use outdoors or in a garage?

I have a couple, one I'd recommend for outdoor use, the other is better for keeping the dust off in the garage.

Mine is in the garage, I just went down to St Vinnies and got 3 double bed sheets for $2 each, works a treat. They can be washed easily. I need this as I live about 300m from the sea, and the salt air soaks into everything around here. Wash em every month or so - cheap and easy.

I know this is not going to help brand name wise, but I used to have a cover that had these flaps on the inside that you put inside the doors and close so no one could pinch it or get blown away for the wind. Was waterproof as well and cost me about $200 around 6 years ago.

The "blow-off" problem (??) can be solved by joining the overlapping edges at window height with a clothes-peg (MK 11 version). So 3 sheets and 4 pegs and you have a cheap washable dust cover.

I've got a motorbike so the car is only used a couple of times a week.
