cpuken is an unknown quantity at this point
I have a 95 318ti and I'm looking to get a car cover for it. I live in a Condo that only has carports... It's amazing I can have a clean car and park it under the car port... a week later (just sitting there) it looks pretty nasty.

Anyway, I see 2-3 different brands of car covers being offered on ebay. I was curious if anyone had bought these and how they worked out. Ideally, I'd like to have a car cover that has a nice custom fit about it... not something that pseudo generic that sort of fits...
If anyone has bought a cover from ebay I'd love to hear your thoughts on the fit and finish.

Thanks

Ken

I'd think you better buy a good brand, cause there are many sorts of synthetic materials, who will vanish in no time (UV-ray from the sun.....) I don't know if they at eBay are good, and what they costs, so....... Maybe the time of warranty will say something.....

Here's one of the current ones being offered.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...item=2460643238

It has a buy it now price of $37.99.
The materials seem fine but I'd love to see a photo of one actually on a 318ti. That would make my decision soooo much easier. I figure todays technology and fabrics should be sufficient but is it a custom fit or will it look like I threw an old sheet over my car.

buying off ebay is risky but stuff such as a car cover is fine, id go for it if you feel its worth the price.

as i always say use your best judgement

You can try it, 37 bugs is not a bad deal.... definitely as you see the prices where Silver4evr is referring to.
