    Outdoor Car Covers

    Hi All,

    Any "value for money recommendations" for an outdoor cover for my 8v Astra?
    There appear to be many types available at varying prices and I do appreciate you get what you pay for. I would appreciate any comments, good or otherwise, from those who have purchased one.

    Thanks.

    This doesn't help you at all but I don't think the covers are specific to how many valves it's got

    IF you want cheap then get some plastic sheeting

    If you want quality then get one of these:

    make sure the car is 100% clean if you do use one and make sure the sides are properly strapped down so the wind doesnt get under. If it does you get grit and dust etc blown onto the paint and when the wind catches the cover and moves it the grit gets rubbed onto the paint and your car ends up with swirl marks everywhere
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it
