Probably the exact opposite, because they are rich they DON'T take care of their cars. They can afford the work to get the paint corrected every time they swirl it up

I am all about indoor cover which keeps the dust away from the car.....

You just need to make sure that the car is clean and dust free before you cover it up.

I would recommend this

PS: Your car is very used to being covered when not driven :-)

A cover inside is not a bad thing, as long as the car is properly cleaned before putting the cover on. Using a cover outside or putting a cover on your car after driving it without washing it will do more harm than good!

I know Ted , thanks everyone for the opinions. The cover has been ordered and she will always be clean before the cover goes on.

If you use the right cover made of the right material, and you cover your car when its clean you will never cause a problem to your paint.

My paint is flawless and I have covered/uncovered my cars going on 6 yrs total.
