Hamilton cover are supposed to be the best but are expensive.

I have a cheap one from amazon, it's a maypole one. It's breathable but not very waterproof, only shower proof really. I keep my car garaged most of the time and right through the winter so only use it for fairly short periods when the weather is warm.

There quite a debate as to weather they actually do more harm than good.

There a thread running on Vzi at the moment although I wouldn't believe everything on Vzi Very Happy

Argos do a selection...
I have gone through a couple of these. The sun damages them the most.
Its a good idea to put a blanket over your car first to protect the paint, as they will rub the car in the wind. You will also need to strap it down to the car as it will blow away in high winds.

Unfortunately the best thing you can do is keep it in a garage, but they are not cheap anymore...

The one I have is one of he maypole ones in the link above, is a medium size one I think, it's a good fit on my notch. I have an Argos on also which I'm sure is the same but the large size and is far to big fr my car.

Without a doubt I'd recommend cover your car. They do a range called storm force which has 4 layers is breathable & waterproof, nothing gets through! It even comes with an alarm inside the cover if outside & a S]
security locking kit. I've got one for the van & bug. Again not cheap but you pay for what you get & I've not seen better I think when I researched them they were slightly cheaper than the Hamilton. Cheap ones just get the car wet then just holds in the water, with spending a bit extra on!!
