i would avoid like the plague if outside!they rub the paint away on the edges if it gets windy my mate had to respray his series two due to this.
i will only every use classic additions.my saff one was a perfect fit and never srcathed or rubbed the paint

i could not get the car cover that was posted on here a while ago when i went to argos, so got the grey fabric one you have linked to.
it fits well and my car is kept garaged, but i think it is leaving small marks on the car, which have to be polished out.

Mines torn to shreds!! And is now in the bin! Kept blowing off as Bigpowers!

Think it MAY of had something to do with having no front & rear bumpers though..............

If you look closely at the pic of mine you will see bungee straps with pipe lagging around them to keep it down on the car. Hence mine not blowing away or ripping.

For the price the cover is great value for money if you cant afford a classic additions one. You just need to improvise like i have to make it work for you

exactly, there are designated holes to attach bungee ropes to, to stop it blowing off. Mine has blown off once or tiwce, but only when not held with bungee ropes. When bungee ropes are on, it stays put...

Have had no probs with scrathing of paint either.

but dont think argos are selling them now.


1 question.... Do the classic additions let a pool of water gather in the space between the spoiler when it rains..?

For all you boys with a classic additons cover that still keep it outside?

i cut a piece of 4mm MDF to the shape of the tail fin and wrapped it in a nice soft sheet to prevent this happening, worked a treat
