The right car cover for my 650i?
 
I need some advice! There are soooo many covers out there, which brand/type is good for me?

I park it in the garage half the month, the other half the month it has to sit behind a fire station near the ocean (salty air) in a very dusty alley. The alley is cement, but you know, it's dirty. I want to cover it while I am on duty for 24 hours, then i take it off and go home and pull into my garage.

What's a good brand that won't scratch my finish (i keep it very clean, the cover will NOT go on if the car is dirty). I want one that will protect from UV Rays, moisture from the ocean, and the dust that gets kicked up when cars drive through the alley. Thank you so much!!!!!!

I got mine from the dealer. I purchase an after market one before and it was not the greatest plus it did not feel sturdy and durable like the one I got from BMW and did not fit tight. The one from the dealer cost more ($200) but to me it's worth it. Great outside protection from the elements plus the inside that touches the car is soft to protect the paint. It fits nice and snug over the car with no room for it to lift off due to heavy winds.

I'm using the one I got from the dealer. Fits perfectly except a tad bit tight over the boot lid due to the AC spoiler. Works perfectly for me. Protects the car from rain and shine.

I highly recommend the NOAH from California Car Cover. Fits real good and does a real good job of keeping the car clean (even outdoors). Price isn't cheap, but hey neither is our cars! If you want I can try a take some pictures on the car tomorrow and post.
