My car is getting painted this week and I am going to try my best to keep it looking great. I was considering buying a quality noah material fitted car cover from either california car covers or this one on ebay. I have heard that covers can actually be more of a problem than they are worth for at least 2 reasons.
1. The inside rubs the paint and causes scratches/rough spots, especially when it is windy (very noticeable on black paint).
2. They cause moisture to build up underneath, allowing for rust/paint lifting/etc.

Is this a problem with the higher quality covers or just the cheap ones? I will have to park on the street once again for 2 more semesters, so I would probably just be using it as an overnight cover, to keep snow cleaning simple in the winter, on real sunny days, and maybe as a theft/vandalism deterrant (some people are just plain d*cks).


Any thoughts or experience with this?

Get a good quality cover and tie it down right. Should not have any problems.
