E36 in Heat

Hey so I am going to be moving soon from San Diego to Phoenix, Arizona. I have a 99 M3 with 100k miles, I am skeptical of taking my car out to AZ since I probably won't be able to have a place with a garage. Am I being overly paranoid, also does anyone know if car covers keep heat off the car significantly when being torched in 115 degrees for hours on end?

Any advice would be great, also, If anyone knows about any sort of car scene out there please let me know

car cover wont do you much good in my opinion because heat will build up anyway and once it gets underneath the cover, the car will be in even grater heat because there will be no wind to cool the car. Thus, in my opinion hiding the car out in the open with a car cover will do more damage then good. My advice would be for you to buy a like a gazebo type of structure with a roof and park your car underneath that
