    Car cover recommendations?

    I'm looking for a car cover as I don't have a garage and my new car will be sitting outside. I was looking at the Empire covers American Armor cover (LINK). Any other ones I should look at? Does anyone have any experience with these covers? Thanks guys!

    And any tips for preserving/keeping my car clean without a garage?

    Let's not do cross posts, just keep this in one spot.

    When I see the other thread I'll close it.

    Bumping.

    Wash it on a regular basis.
    Use a cover only if you're not using it for a certain period of time and it will be sunny.
    You do not want to hassle with it every day.
    Also, when there's sand on the car, having a cover over it can do more harm then good.
    So only use a cover after washing the car.
    There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

    Ahh so a cover isn't really worth the money? I was planning on covering it everyday, but the more I read the less it seems useful or logical...

    It depends.
    If you live in SoCal and leave your car for ever in the burning sun it can protect your paint from fading, unless your car is white Click here to enlarge
    But if you use your car daily it is not worth the hassle.

    I wouldn't call the cover a waste. Even in SoCal it's the sun that will affect your paint more than other elements.

    Up to you if you want to deal with the hassle of moving it.
