I don't have a garage available and would like to avoid scraping the windows.

I have a bit of a sled4 situation at the moment:
I purchased a cover some time ago for our e28 when I restored the car. The car was parked all winter outside and all I did remove the cover from time to time (on nice days). The car cover was purchased from BMW and has breathing / ventilation holes.

If you get a cover I recommend you get it from BMW only. Also discuss it with your friendly BMW Service manager. However, the cover is quite expensive I think I paid over $400- for it (you can secure it and lock it up , still there is no guarantee that some one might not steal it.

If I was you I would find a garage where I could properly store the car for the November to April Months. ~s~

Perhaps if you have some sort of shelter now can you improve it by adding something like this?

The photo below shows the BMW cover I used (note the texture those are the ventilation provisions in the cover).

Driving mt 2012 /// M3 LMB & Black Leather Interior Fully Loaded
I drove a Z4 35i across the USA in 2010 & loved it.
Somehow I just had to get back into the /// M3 and so I did.
