You can buy the 'Universal' size. Type 1 & 2 both will get into this.

Well I'm in urgent need of a car cover for my Punto. I heard a lot about Dupont Tyvek material hence would go for one made of Tyvek.

Polco is selling one on their website for Rs. 3,390/- while Fiat sells it for Rs. 2,490/-. So the question here is which one should I go for??
Go for the FIAT one. No meaning of shelling 900 more for a Polco.

I am planning to pick this type of car cover for my Linea. Simply cant stand the birds pooping on my car. Will cover it up wherever possible.

Any idea what a C++ size cover costs?

You can try sourcing Fiat genuine accessory Tyvek car cover. From what I've heard, its of good quality. Moreover you get a perfect fit.

Any thoughts on the Coverite Prestige "soft 5-layer" cover? Does it offer any significant advantage over a lower end Coverite such as the Silvertech or Softbond?

Hello,

I am looking for a car cover for my Zen and have come across this Silvertech cover. They have mentioned that this cover has mirror pockets. However, they have not mentioned if it has an antenna pocket/grommet. If anyone has used a Silvertech cover, could you please reply about the antenna pocket.

Also, as of now I have not found a cover online with an antenna pocket/grommet. If anyone has an idea where to look for it, please do share.

Thanks,
RLight

Coverite is good. I dont have the prestige model but the middle model, dont remember the name. The quality is very good.

@madbullram: Thanks for the reply. I want to know if the cover has an antenna pocket/grommet. If not, is there an alternate solution to this?

Thanks,

I am using the Silvertech cover for the past 2 years for my WagonR and found the quality is good as compared to the MGA cover. However this cover does not have an antenna pocket/grommet. The alternate solution could be to remove the antenna while using the cover(If you have a removable antenna)

Hi. Any comparo between Polco Tyvek and Coverite Prestige / Softbond?

Kids have been scratching my white car with their cycles. Urgently need some protection. Otherwise the car stays in a covered parking at all times.

Get the ribbon stands (used in shopping malls) to keep kids form venturing near to your car. Or simply tie a thick string across pillars as a desi Jugaad

I was under the impression that tyvek is a fabric from Dupont, and various brands use it to make car covers. But it is not so. A neighbour of mine bought a Toyota Etios yesterday, and a cover for it. Today morning I saw the cover sporting a Dupont label.

Need to get the Dupont covers for my Ford Fiesta ( Classic type ) and for an Maruti 800. I am worried about the fit got the Fiesta, looking for something that fits snugly on the Fiesta and has neat mirror pockets to fit the mirrors well too, any suggestions?
