    Mrs smartbear has just taken delivery of her new half cover, it's the breathable cabrioshield one & she's very pleased with it-I took a couple of pics this afternoon

    So................. I guess that's answered the one about which car lives in the garage then.:)
    How does it secure so that the wind doesn't get under it please? Rough idea of cost too, pretty please.
    Cheers, Tony.

    Hi tony, the cover has fleece enclosed magnets round its circumference & also has rubber flanges that close in the doors/boot so it can't easily be stolen-it cost £170 including postage.
    Both cars live outside & my motorbikes live in the garage :)

    Hi thanks for that. I guess I jumped to the wrong conclusion after all then. Ha Ha.. I think that I will probably get a cover when I get a new soft top.
    Cheers,Tony.

    nice, sounds like it is quality and well a thought out product, like to see that kind of thing, you don't mind spending hard earned cash if the product is very good

    I have their Interior Cover in tan Weathershield fabric to match my interior. It's like a tonneau cover, and very thin and light so it wads up into a small bundle for storage.

    It is held by the trunk, the door handles, and the wipers.

    There was a certain lady on a certain other site that had certain problems with one of these and marking of certain areas of paintwork, i would suggest being cautious about damage and remove it after a shower or before high wind just to be certain ;)

    Who was the vendor for that cover? My tonneau cover from Roadster Solutions does not touch much paint. I can't imagine how paint damage could occur, particularly since this is just a convenient tonneau cover used for short periods of time.

    I know storage covers can damage the paint, from long term use, trapping moisture, flapping in the wind, etc.

    I personally think it was not used correctly, or just left on over the whole winter.

    They looked at taking legal action against the seller.

    I bought a hamilton fleece lined cover last year and had no problem with it marking the car

    I like it, however it makes the Zed look like a hooded falcon [the winged variety]. :)

    They should do one in Mink, BMG has the prototype I believe, but it's only a glove......
