Car Covers

Hi All,

Googling "best car cover" online is pretty useless as I've been seeing contradictory reviews here and there.

So thought it would be better to ask if anyone here has any recommendations for a trusted car cover for the M2C based on their actual experience with what they purchased?

I'm specifically looking for a car cover that has high quality materials on the inside of the cover, as I've read that a lot of them oddly skip out on this and end up damaging the paint on the car it was designed to protect.

My car is garaged so I'm not needing a cover that can repel 6000 degrees of sunlight and is so shiny that it can be seen from space.

What I require is one that keeps dust/debris/condensation off my car while in the garage and doesn't scratch the crap out of it when I put it on/off.

Thanks!

Thanks!
I'm in the same boat. What I'm actually trying to get is a fairly cheap "blanket". Doesnt need to keep tight on my car, just like a quick tarp/blanket to keep the dust off that i can easily take off and on.

Personally, I think indoor car covers can cause more micro-marring than they are worth unless the car is always clean and dust free when the cover is placed (the latter issue can be reduced by a good sealant of course). That said, if I was going to buy a car cover, I'd buy it from California Car Covers. They are not particularly inexpensive but I've heard they make very high quality covers and have indoor and outdoor applications.

Second the California Car Covers. They have some great indoor/outdoor covers including some that have some dent protection. I've personally owned the Stormweave and also have the Noah for my M2 and have been very happy with both products.

I'm considering buying the Weathertech car cover at this point for winter storage.
