Hey guys, did a search for car covers and nothing came up. Who has one for their car? We get some wild weather from time to time in central TX (case in point, 10" of snow in Dallas last night) and so wanna protect my car from hail mostly.

Who has one? What brand did you get? How do you like it?

Thanks

I have the cover (for 54€); since I bought my car.
I use the cover in the summer time to avoid sun rays.
nice,

[Raises hand :)]

I'm garageless (mostly). WeatherShield HP (expensive;custom-made [took 6 weeks!];fitted). Was attracted by the advertised all weather excellence, 'breath-ability' and small size (into a standard washing machine). From 'State of Nine' (quite a selection and a good starting point, not cheap...).

Reality: Cover only sees use in late spring/summer/fall (and on a freshly washed car...otherwise I fear scratching -- black car -- pulling on and off). Does wonders (when it's used!) to keep pine needles and sap off the paint. But in a snowy climate (+ sand/salt) not only is it a hassle to remove and store (dry) after a snowfall, I dare not use it now as it's too cold to properly wash X in driveway and too long a distance to the local car wash!

I'm happy. In retrospect, one might have gone cheaper and generic (if not so loose as to blow away!) . I think J-L's (below) seems a fine solution:Lack of form-fit on the mirrors/antenna a reasonable compromise for the price.

[Some cruel fate in the purchase timing: Cover was on order when Toronto struck with it's worst hailstorm in recent memory and I incurred some damage (fortunately repaired without panel replacement by 'Ding Doctor' :) )].
