Car cover for the E92 M3?

I'm looking for a car cover for my E92 M3, but can't find one that is made for it. Any leads?

A bit off topic but might be related. Did you sell your E46 yet?

I bought one from the dealer made for the E9X cars. It fits really good, says BMW on the front and is made by Nappa.

In the UK there is a good company that comes round and measures up your car and tailor makes the cover to it, if for instance you have moded the car in any way it will fit it perfect not that that helps you in any way but i think that is pretty cool IMO

Make sure its a nice soft fabric inner and no harsh bits that may scratch

Just saw this thread. If you had a cover for an E46 M3, it will work on the E92. Not quite as good a fit (a little loose around the mirrors), but it works well and it will save you the cost of a new cover. I'm using my old E46 M3 cover (BMW). Just needed to get a longer cable lock since the car is a little bit wider.
