Car cover

I called my local BMW dealer and they said they didn't show a listing for the E92 M3 car cover. They do have a regular E92 car cover which I think should fit but I'm wondering if M3 specific covers come out later or if there is another car cover I should consider. FWIW, they were asking $205 for the E92 cover.

The car cover that I bought for my 335i fits my M3 just fine. It was $200 or something

If you go to the Covercraft website, you can find a bunch of links to online vendors. They resell them, most for the same price. So the trick is to find the lowest price one that is out of state so you don't pay tax. Covercraft just dropships it to you. I couldn't find an M3 model listed so I ordered the E92 cover.

So I wanted an indoor cover that was soft and dust free. Guess what? They have one called the Dustop that is exactly what I wanted. I ordered mine through Autoaccessoriesgarage, a lot of places had the same exact price. Some of the online vendors have a higher price. I received it a few weeks ago and it's much softer than that one I originally bought from Costco and returned. Total price was about $169 with free shipping. They have many covers to choose from all at different price points.

I have yet to try it on, maybe I'll snap some pics when I have a chance. I'm a bit worried how it will fit when the mirrors are folded in since I have the remotekey and my mirrors fold automatically from the remote.

I got mine from calcarcover.com. It's the Noah fabric. I prefer something that doesn't say BMW or anything else on it as I park in a lot and don't want to draw attention to the car, so I didn't get it from the dealer (I think those say BMW on them?). It has been working really well.

Yeah some pics would be awesome. How are you programming your mirrors to fold in automatically?

You have to buy a module from EAS. Tom was great to work with. Here is a link to the product. It took me all of about 15 minutes to install then another 5 minutes to program. Works fantastic!
