    Covering your astra

    I park my car just on the pavement outside my house and it's pretty much exposed and I was looking at buying a cover, just a cap one that covers the roof, and windows but then I realised my aerial on my Mk4 doesn't bend so the cover wouldn't fit because of it.

    Has anyone experienced similar difficulties? I was thinking about just cutting a hole in the cover to allow the aerial to be free.

    Just looking for some advice on how you guys cover/protect your cars from the elements?

    Thanks!

    To be honest, I've never looked that closely, it might screw off. I'll need to look in the morning.

    The Ariel just screws off mate!

    I got one from Halfords for £15 covers the roof and all windows, find it really handy in the winter as it saves time in the mornin and protects the car from the elements!

    Thanks, but I'm worried about covering all my car cause knowing my luck a neighbour will swing round hit my car and claim they never saw it because I had it all cover. lol Paranoid I know but I'd prefer to have my lights showing. lol
