Car Covers

I just spent over $750 removing a series of minute, some would say microscopic dings from my wife's car, a Mini Cooper S Clubman. To say that I am a stickler about my cars is an understatement.

Little things like that seem to bother me more than most and I go thru alot of effort to keep my cars as spotless as I can.

I've got several car covers, but I needed a new one for the clubman and got one from Car Covers.

Car Covers on Mini Cooper S Clubman.

This cover comes with an unusual amount of extra bits, like a very well made draw-string bag for the cover made of the same material as the cover, rope and cloth washers to tie the cover down, three high quality wash rags and even a car cover security cable and lock, but be sure its the one you want because when you first open the box, a clearly placed warning lets you know that there is a 15% restocking fee, and it even reminds you to clean your car before putting it on to be sure the cover does not get dirty.

It even has a tag sticked on the inside of the cover to identify what the front of the cover is (altho it could be a bit bigger). One of the other covers I have has the word "Front" printed big on the outside, and I find that a bit more helpful.

This cover also is void of exterior mirror "pockets". Its not a big deal, and once its on, it fits quite good. The one thing that is a bit inconvenient is that the Mini Cooper's radio antenna is in the center of the roof (much like my BMW M Coupe) and in order to put the cover on, you have to unscrew the antenna each time. This is clearly not a fault with the cover.

I Really like this cover. It is very well made, the material is thick and does not feel cheap at all, it comes with an assortment of bits, and it fits very good.

Car covers are plentiful. You can buy them locally, or you can buy them online

Wow! What a perfect fit! The car looks comfortably covered and its stretch shows good quality material is used. Good to read that now more options are available in standard Car Covers in terms of size. The price you have quoted sounds reasonable too. Thanks a lot for sharing the information!
