Indoor car cover...

Did a search and nothing came up! Anyone use one in your garage to avoid dust...etc. CT winters are damp as well! I treat this car like its a infant basically!

Any recommendations?

BMW makes a car cover for the E92 that fits the E92 M3. I have one and it works well...I just don't use it much because I won't put it on the car when the car is dirty. Not sure of other options, but I'm sure there are some out there...

you can't go wrong with a cover from Covercraft. i've tried different brands and the quality/performance of these is outstanding. i'm using their HD version under a carport and both water/dust sheet off the surface. the bmw cover is the "noah" model but i'd try the Dustop or Form-fit versions.

here's the place i got mine from: car covers

Thanks alot hifiguy! I ordered the dustop one! The Form Fit didn't have a M3 selection.

glad to help, i'm pretty sure you'll end up satisfied with it. i lived in boston for a while but never had the pleasure of winter storage. take some pics and let us know how it works out.

I found some decent ones from empire. This cover was a replacement cover for a custom cover that cost three times as much and started leaking water and collecting dust under the cover in less than a year. My Empire cover is 4 months old, has survived numerous strong thunderstorms and seering Texas sun, and so far is exceeding my expectations. I have 3 cars under cover, soon the other two will be covered by Empire.
