Cover for Jaguar XKR 1999 Convertible

Hi all,
looking for a protective cover for my 1999 Jag XKR convertible.
It will be stored outside.
needs to be waterproof and breathable
done a little research and this looks good:-

https://www.carcovershop.co.uk/Car-W...ble-Covers.asp

would i be better going for a custom made to fit for this particular model or a generic cover such as this.

Some have upto 7 layers , with a soft fleece inner layer to protect paintwork.
.
Recommendations please
thanks in advance
Nick

Hi Nick

Those are fabulous covers and the material is way ahead of the spun polypropene (golf ball texture) ones. If only we had the fabric available to custom make, its by far the best fabric we know of.

The fabric is slightly stretchy so will fit well.

7 layers is a bit of a gimmick tbh, and fleece can potentially come off and coat your hood.

Pop over and feel the fabric if you want ?
