  • Outdoor Car Cover

    Hi guys,

    Does anyone have a good recommendation for an outdoor car cover?

    There was a German firm i saw recommended on one of the threads but they've stopped shipping to the UK now...

    Much appreciated!

    Not sure if it’s still available to order but I have the genuine BMW one. And it fits like a glove!

      I've recently been doing some work for these guys:
      https://www.specialisedcovers.com/car-covers/

      They already have a template for the M Coupe so would be able to make one up for you

      They do custom designs as well if you fancied something special

      I'm not on commission
      Not actually in the least bit fat

          Many thanks for the heads up on these

          That OEM one looks great, but I can't find it on the site...not sure they do it anymore

          The specialised covers look great too, but looks like they've got a 4 week lead time...although more fitted to the shape, do you know if they offer any more protection than a standard one?

          I'll probably try and get down to Halfords (£65 for the medium) over the weekend and pick one up before deciding on a more expensive one if needed

          Will let you guys know on the fit once I get it

          Thanks again!

            They offer a few types of outdoor cover I think. The examples that they were fitting to a 599 on the photoshoot were really soft on the inside but I can't comment on how they standup to the weather in comparison to other manufacturers

              Little update, they finally had the medium in stock and managed to get one last week. Medium is a little on the larger side, and having gone out this morning to check the car after some rain, seems its a little damp.

              Just a heads up if anyone was thinking of getting the same. Will reach out to Halfords and see what they say/suggest but I think my hunt for a sub £150 outdoor cover may have to continue...

                  And you'll just need to cross out 'Z3' and scribble on the correct BMW model designation of 'M Coupe'
