How to protect car in garage?

Hey I have a question for you guys-

How do you protect your car from scratches, etc from other people? I live at home and my damn grandma doesn't give a rat's ass about my MR M3 and has put several scratches on the side of my car..

So what do y'all do...those who live at home, have children, etc


Thanks for any input!

You ever think about using a car cover? Or maybe tell her to be more careful.

I'm confused?? You drive an M3 but can't live on your own? I had my own appartment in highschool (crazy parties) drove a '82 camero and still had money to buy dope...ooops, I mean beer. Anyway, get gard rails or something and weld them to your car. LOL!! I'm kidding, it's funny hearing this stuff.

Evolution Fabric cover is nice because of the four layers of microfiber protection and the soft inner layer that prevents scratches and it's thick enough to protect dents & dings.

Bottom of the page.

Sunbrella is also good....
