My car is soon to be back at home but as it lives on the drive I want to cover it over to protect it from the weather! So can people recommend any decent covers? Any links? Needs to be breathable as I don't want it to trap moisture! Cheers people!

Its hard to find them Pete as i have heard of even the more expensive ones scratching as they rub on the car and belive it or not the R is a hard car to get one to fit

I've heard of covers lined with micro fiber that are meant to reduce scratching but they are proper expensive I would prob suggest putting some soft dust sheets from a DIY store then putting a cheap ish cover over it but again it's hard not to scratch em

Grey hides better than black lol try it on existing paint Pete before you get your dip. This said the new paint has chance to be softer.

I've got the same car cover as Rob, one from halfords, bought extra ratchet straps as said the standard clips ain't the best, brittle and break quite easy and reduce the amount it moves
