Car Cover recommendations?

My first thought is to use one from Bavarian Auto' but thought I'd ask here too.

I'm may have to leave the e92 out of the garage for a while and still want it covered.

Ya, don't think I would ever buy anything from pepboys to go on my car outside of washer fluid.

Anyone have a price on a Genuine BMW car cover... anyone have experience w/ the ones from Bav Auto?

I dream to get a Covercraft cover made of their thin (and expensive) home-washable material. But its about $400...

NOAH (the material from which the OEM cover is made of) is too thick and bulky.

I have the Ultimate Car Cover from BavAuto and it fits my E90 very well. When on sale, it is about $169. It is thinner than the NOAH material so it will not protect from hail very well. But, so far after almost two years in the NC sun, it has held up. My old NOAH (BMW OEM) for my 535i lasted about 3-4 years and the sun just destroyed it. Also, the BavAuto is guaranteed for life. Good luck on your decision.

Great, thanks. I'll go w/ the Bav Auto one... just trying to keep the dust off and the sun out of the car while it's not in the garage.

Please don't say hail... spent the night in Kentucky w/ my Daily Driver only to have a hail storm run through. That was a nightmare to fix, if it happened to the e92 I'd never be the same
