    Car covers

    My car is going to have to endure the Scottish weather and I was thinking about getting the wee car cover Argos do for a £10, but I see they have a £40 "breathable" one - http://www.argos.co.uk/webapp/wcs/st...clickfrom=name

    Anyone used this or any advice on this? I only want something to keep the snow and the worst of the frost etc off my car....

    I had the breathable one, but lost it on the M1 some where whilst trailing the car

    They are not to bad to be honest as long as you fasten them down well as the wind will blow them around a lot.

    the ones which are breathable have a fine fleece type of material in them, so paint work would be fine, mine was from Halfords though but looks the same product.

    I need to get some luminous tape or something to put over my cover so that my numpty neighbours don't smash into my car. Anyone know where I can get some?
