Does anybody have a recommendation for a good quality outdoor car cover for my S2 Exige? Will be without a garage for a few months so needs to stand up to the British winter!

Friend used one of these at Goodwood at the weekend;

It was their 'Ultimate outdoor cover' I believe. I was really impressed how well water beaded off it.
I have one of these;

Absolute pile of shite.
How about those outdoor garages, metal poles and fabric around?
The problem with any fabric touching the high points is the rubbing action the wind has over a whole season.

I have always bought indoor covers from

http://www.specialisedcovers.com/car-covers

Thy do an outdoor one with a soft fleece lining. Not cheap, but very good products.

I have a spare ‘Stormforce’ cover, unused, if you’re interested. https://www.stormcarcovers.co.uk/collec ... =609553073

It didn’t quite fit my S1 properly despite them insisting it would and never managed to return it. It’s pretty well made and should fit the S2 perfectly. Any reasonable offer considered as it’s just sat in the garage and I've not got round to putting it on eBay yet! :-D

I have a stormshield+ outdoor car cover for an S2 from here:

http://www.specialisedcovers.com/storms ... m_id=11374

It's waterproof on the outside, furry on the inside and breathable to avoid condensation getting trapped inside. I bought it when we were between houses for a few months but ended up storing the car at the father in law's instead and the cover has only been used once as a trial fitting in my old garage. Yours for £100.

I got one for my 211 via TLF which I think is a specialised cover. Great piece of kit that protected my roofless car whilst I was garageless for a time.
