Hi All,

I brought an XL one from Halfords and it's massive. It even goes eight under the car.

I bought a tailored RichBrook Stormguard hd it seems to be decent. A little on the expensive side I think though, but fits nicely. ... ar-covers/

Good thread!

This is on my to do list, or build a garage but that’s probably abit to ask with the weather now so may have to be next year project 😂

What are people doing about the battery situation when covered for long periods?

Mine lives outside without a cover, but if the battery needs a top-up I just connect the CTEK overnight. Choose a dry night for preference, of course. If you're going to "store" it for the duration of the winter things may get a bit more complicated.

Be careful with outdoor covers. If there is any grit whatsoever on any of the corners or inside the cover, the cover will start to scratch the paint.

I bought a cover from specialised covers - only just put it on so cannot comment on long term performance but it certainly fits well - the shape even allows for SVR spoiler

I have used Classic Additions for an outdoor cover and found them to be very good.

Have to say for the price the Halfords covers are excellent.
