Post Recommendation for car cover brand

I have to keep my car outside in the elements for about a month or so and I want to get a car cover for the new toy. It will be alot of rain and maybe some snow. (Not sure when the snow comes in Germany). Any suggestions?

It's a german car. It doesn't take any damage from either rain nor snow during a month.. IMO, your money is waisted buying a cover.

Hey it's not just rain and snow. Those heat from the sun will melt your leather interior like Hot cake.

Well the weather wording is more for keeping it clean from the elements. Also the cover would help from blowing debris, rocks from passer cars, hopefully any other incidentals. I would just like to keep it as nice as possible while I don't have the gear or supplies to maintain it.

I'd call the parts dept at the dealer you purchased the vehicle from. Factory car covers are the best IMO. They're also an exact fit!

Yeah I seen the new factory 6 one but they didn't have it in stock near me so I will have to order one from a dealer online. I seen one on amazon already, just checking other options before I pull the trigger.
