Can anybody recommend a good quality outdoor car cover?
Thanks.

Just replaced my existing cover with a stormforce from "Justroadster" not cheap at £141 but the fit and quality is a major upgrade on the old one.
In love with driving again (its the Z effect)

I also bought a Stormforce cover last November and I've been very pleased with it. Expensive I agree (and I paid £3 more than you Bowler!) but a good long term purchase in my view.

Hi. I am looking for a good all round outdoor cover for my z3 (the bmw z3 cover I have has left my bonnet scratched) and the Storm Car Covers website (https://www.stormcarcovers.co.uk/pages/ ... ons-advice) suggests to me that the Stormforce cover isn't recommended for temperatures below 21 degrees which seems a bit nuts. I've looked at the Hamilton website but concerned reports by forum members that point to the car sweating. I wonder if anyone had any recent experience of either or the Halfords alternative?

I have a classic additions ultimate cover.
I bought it 2nd hand for £50. £200 new.
It had been on an Audi A3 and fits my coupe really well.
The car is carbon black. I’ve never had a black car, lots of marks when I take off the cover.

I have one of these - one and off in seconds and great for protecting both the hard-top and soft-top

I had one of those a few years ago, it scratched the paint when it was on over winter..
