Car Cover Recommendation (Outdoor)

Hi All

My new X3 is due for delivery at the end of this month. I'm looking for a good quality breathable cover for outdoor use on a regular basis. I've looked at a few manufacturers but wonder if any forum members have a recommendation?

Thanks in advance.

I have the OEM F25 cover, #82152164761 - works and fits great.

I had a factory cover for one of my previous BMWs. It secured nicely and had soft felt inside. However, I always thought that if the car wasn't totally clean, that any movement of the cover would scratch the finish (e.g. wind or whatever). So I never got another one. YMMV

That was my concern as well. However my current car gets covered in tree sap etc where it is and thought a car cover would be a better option.

I had looked at Covercraft and Autopyjama but have no experience of either company to pass comment. It's quite a large outlay of money just for a cover so I wanted to ensure I made the right choice!

I would agree that preventing tree sap is more important (to me anyway).
