Best Car Cover M3

I wanted to know any suggestions on purchasing a car cover for the E92. What do you guys recommend who have experience with car covers? Brand and weblink to purchase if you have that would be appreciated?

Whats the best car cover without paying over $150-$200 USD?

The Evolution 4 is the natural selection when you want your car cover to do it all. The Kimberly-Clark fabric is cut to custom fit your vehicle.

The Evolution 4's tough exterior can withstand acid rain, industrial pollutants, tree sap, even bird droppings. The core layers block minute dust particles, yet allow air to circulate. The super-soft inner lining babies your vehicle. And, all the layers combine to provide a thick, impact-resistant shield. Plus, the entire cover is breathable for fast drying after storms.

Made in the USA and it comes with a 4-year warranty. Darwin would be proud.

Covercraft's Noah Car Cover is an excellent outdoor/indoor car cover that delivers on all your vehicle-covering requirements.

An impact-free inner layer of polyethylene/nylon blend is gentle on your ride's finish. The central layer of the fabric repels water with its vapor-porous design - microscopic pinholes are too small for water droplets and dust, but large enough for moisture vapor to escape. The exterior is polypropylene/polyethylene spunbond, durable and UV-resistant.

Made in the USA with Kimberly-Clark fabric. Your Noah Car Cover boasts a 4-year warranty.

I purchased at:

http://www.calcarcover.com/

Their service was great. I use the cover everyday at work. The fit is outstanding and easy to install/remove.
I purchased this model to keep the dust off and protect from the California sunshine.

I have Coverking covers, a Autobody Armor for protection and a Stormproof I keep in the trunk for light use. Both excellent covers. The AA cover has a soft fleece interior but is too heavy for quick use, the Stormproof is very light and easy to throw on.

Whatever you do go custom and not a generic fit.

Regardless of what cover you decide to go with, use your best judgement as to how dirty your car is when you cover it. Try to give it a QD before covering it to avoid scratches or harming the finish from the abrasive dust that settles on the paint. Obviously if its very dirty do not use the cover!....

Be sure to follow Mfg. recomendations and wash or launder often.

What would you recommend for an indoor only cover? I park in a garage that dates back to the early Roman times and has never been powerwashed or cleaned. An easy to drape on/off dust cover would be great when I'm traveling. I have the BMW car cover for outside use, but its too heavy/cumbersome most of the time in the garage.
