I totally agree with cheahman, as I had one for the XE. Did exactly what cheahman said: water & dirt soaked thru, sometimes staining the car, and if the paint already had dust/grit on it, it'd get scratched.
Also, those covers are a prick of a thing to fold back up to original size.
One last point: what do you do with the cover when it's soaking wet, eh? I'm totally against them now, and that old car cover is rotting in my parents' cellar, muahaha!

grand parents used to have a high quality one for their fairlane and now the paint is rooted on the top surfaces because of it (and the Bendigo sun). i wouldnt use one after seeing what happens. they are time consuming and a pain in the arse to say the least.

I have a top quality one and use it all the time after it has been washed,they must have the good underfelt on them,and as far as water getting through them i 've never had the problem,like i said i always wash it before i put it on and i generally polish it every 5 weeks or so.
I bought mine at Autobarn and paid around the $300 mark and its works keeps the dust and the water off as far as im concerned.
