Yes they are. Not cheap but I didn't even want to look elsewhere when I replaced my 1st after 10 years.

Yes, we do - our specialist car covers site is at: www.carcovershop.co.uk

We can do custom made covers, or our Soft Stretch covers, with any logo.

The custom made covers come in 2 types - like the two illustrated above at £299 and our Peachskin high-tech lightweight fabric from £145-180 depending on model.

As an alternative to the fitted indoor covers mentioned above I bought a Reveal Cover from Mark via the Car Cover Shop.

I had it custom made so that it sits a couple of inches off the floor. It is well made, super soft and came with a nice draw string storage bag made from the same material and all for a very reasonable price!

P.S. Your link address above incorrect Mark.

I've got a metex one for my M3, got them to put the BMW logo on to was only about 60 delivered, really nice and soft, breathable and pulls over not tailored so no risk of marring etc just fold it up into the middle of the roof and remove. Recommend it

The Metex covers are just a square sheet of funerary fabric (I believe). Our standard reveals are curved at corners, the one we did for Alan was a tailored shape.

You do tend to get what you pay for in the covers market, there are some blatant untruths told about covers too. Anything sold as 'breathable and waterproof' for outdoor use for less than £170 simply isn't...And you dont want to use anything that's waterproof/nylon indoors as cars will sweat.

Simply, if you have a decent car you should expect to pay a decent amount for a cover, no-one on here uses Fairy Liquid any more to wash their car...

We've built a worldwide reputation for covers since 2003, supplying companies such as McLaren, Honda, MG, Mercedes-Benz, Skoda, Nissan, Sauber and many more.

Race glazer in your opinion are the metex ones good? I don't mind it not being tailored as its only fitted over a clean car once it's been out once it's not fitted until clean again so not faffing with a tailored is ideal for me

This is exactly why I am getting one for the TVR. It's a perfect solution and you don't need to spend anymore than this on a cover let alone £200+ all that is buying you is willy waving rights down the pub.

Personally I wouldn't use a Metex cover on my own car and wouldn't recommend one to anyone else, irrespective of whether they might buy one of mine instead.

I dont like the fabric from a visual and technical viewpoint, I dont like the way it drags on the floor, and it looks dreadful.

Nick - you can buy one of our Soft Stretch covers for only £99, so can wave your willy at the pub secure in the knowledge of a great cover at a great price and plenty of spare cash left over

I fold mine up at the sides and front so it's not dragging on floor, bit annoying but rather that than an actual body hugging one tbh for my needs anyway, what's wrong with the material on them in your eyes?
