    I have the Noah cover from covercraft for 3 years now and it still looks great. I always clean my ride before using the cover to avoid unwanted scratches.

    I would also recommend Covercraft NOAH Car Cover. It has great feedback and provide maximum outdoor protection from acid rain, UV rays, snow, tree sap, bird droppings, dirt, and other airborne contaminants.

    Good points. We have to keep couple cars outside - dark colors. First - it has to be a fitted, good quality layered cover, and two - (very important) is to take if off often (even if not driving car) to wash car and remove (without hitting ground) crap off inside of cover.

    Even with good covers - if you let it sit for weeks and weeks outside with even summer weather ... the dust and particle build up can eventually scratch the paint.

    I use car covers a lot. Inside / Outside. I just do not cover the car if it has a layer of dust on it. That means it is time to wash it imo.

    I like shiny things. Car covers in the garage protect it from purses, bags and small object that fall off shelves etc.. I do not have any scratches because of the use of the car covers. Plus, outside it help minimize door dings and keep the interior nice and cool.
    You might find me napping at lunchtime with the windows down under the car cover. It is very nice and comfy.

    You can get a car cover that will last about two years off ebay for under $40. I replace them every couple of years.

    To keep the wind from blowing cover off use a soft rope through the grommets and under the car.

    If you have another car in your garage or suspect possible door contact from another vehicle you can place a towel or blanket around the mirror to protect the door some.

    The door edge protector is made out of 3/8" water hose at a cost of about .35 It is there to protect the other cars that share the garage:
