Car Cover (Outdoor) for a 2017 500

Hi

Back to the Fiat fold after a few years away

Picked up a pre-registered (del mileage) 1.2 500 Popstar a few weeks back

So far enjoying the car

However, due to a change in our households other cars, my Fiat is going to be parked in a back drive, under a tree

I am looking for a tailored outdoor car cover, does anyone have any recommendations ?

Here you go then:




Though it would be considerably cheaper buying one off Ebay from the US even including postage:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2012-2016-...-/121040941156

Chances are, spending a small fortune on a car cover such as the above, it'll just get nicked by some scrote.

To be honest, Ebay, even the UK site, there are plenty of covers that allegedly fit the 500 from 2007 on, and probably cheaper than those two links above.

I've dealt with 500 Madness a few times and found them prompt and efficient so I wouldn't hesitate on that score. The eBay link Frupi supplied is not a bad price either - a bit more than what I paid for mine a few years ago, but it's still in the US. I won't deal with Amazon under any circumstances even apart from the eye-watering price.

Thieves, like the poor, are always with us and I would not consider fitting a car cover if the vehicle was on the street.
